The Church is the People
St. Patrick’s began over 38 years ago as a dream of several people from a few Episcopal churches in the Columbus area. They began planning to meet for worship and fellowship in Dublin.
The generosity of the Dublin Community Church found us worshipping in the Kennedy Room on the second floor. A beige cinder block rectangular room with an Altar, Credence Table, and Pulpit. The room held about 60 people. When the collection plate had to be passed up and down the stairs because the metal chairs were full, we knew we had to move.
The next step was the All-Purpose Room at the Dublin Middle School across the street. There we set up, worshipped, and took things down every week. We continued to grow. We held a Christmas Eve Service in the gymnasium.
