Saint Patrick Church Rededicated

Posted: Updated:

Its been a big year for Saint Patrick Church in Erie, and on Sunday they celebrated with the Bishop at a rededication mass.

Bishop Lawrence Persico blessed the newly renovated church during mass Sunday morning.

It was part of a year long celebration of the parishes 175th anniversary.

This past year the inside of the church underwent a complete restoration, preserving one of Erie's oldest churches.

After mass parishioners were invited to the Bayfront Convention Center for a special brunch.

Monsignor Henry Kriegel said the church is attracting more and more families.

"We're very fortunate that were growing the way we are, we have more than tripled in size," he said. "Bishop Persico said to me 'I've not been in a church in the diocese with so many babies,' we have a lot of young families so it's exciting."

They're hoping to keep the pews filled for another 175 years.
