Cathedral of Saint Patrick

Diocese of Norwich Conn.

Located in the heart of the little New England town of Norwich Connecticut, with its imposing stone façade of the Cathedral of St. Patrick has been a prominent fixture of Norwich since 1879 when it was built by the James Murphy of Providence R.I., as a parish church. Upon the creation of the diocese of Norwich in 1953 the then first bishop the diocese chose St. Patrick’s for his cathedral because of its beauty and centrality of location.
