September 30, 1917 - September 30, 2017

We're Celebrating 100 Years!

The mission of the St. Patrick Catholic Church Centennial Celebration is to recognize the centennial anniversary of St. Patrick Church in a year-long celebration from October 1, 2016 until October 1, 2017, by acknowledging the rich history and contributions of the Catholic Community in the Bisbee area, by enhancing the church grounds, and by inviting our communities to share in our joy.


For nearly 3 years, the Centennial Steering Committee has been very active researching, planning, and executing to bring many things together for our Centennial year. It's been a busy time, and the next few weeks leading up to our big weekend will be even busier.

Our parishioners and community friends have generously shared pictures and stories with us as we've reminisced about the 140 years of the Catholic faith in the Bisbee / Naco area.   There will be many pictures and documents shown on this parish website so that the information will be readily available.  Watch for more links appearing at the bottom of this page as these items are added.  If you think of photos you might have tucked away and are willing to share them with us, please contact the parish office at
