St Patrick’s Fremantle was established around 1850, the third Catholic Community in Western Australia after St Mary’s Cathedral Parish Perth and the Benedictine community of New Norcia. Until 1894 the parish was served mainly by Diocesan Priests with the exception of the 1850s, when it was served by a number of Benedictines who each came for a short time. Since 1894, the parish has been entrusted to the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.
Currently, Fr Tony Maher OMI is the Parish Priest and Rector of the Basilica of St Patrick.
Weekend Mass times are as follows:
Saturday Vigil Mass:
