Augustus Laver, an architect of the Parliament Buildings, designed this Gothic Revival building. Enlarged by a chancel and sacristy in 1885 and a taller spire in 1893, it is the former city of Ottawa's oldest Anglophone Catholic Church. Its richly decorated interior presents a sharp contrast to its sombre exterior. Saint Patrick's Basilica has a long history in the City of Ottawa, being its first English-speaking Roman Catholic Parish. Your Church was completed in 1875 and was declared a Basilica on Saint Patrick's Day, March 1995. The Church is named for an Irish missionary named Maewyn Succat. Fifteen hundred years ago he converted Ireland to Christianity, and was thenceforth known as SAINT PATRICK.
