Old Saint Patrick's Roman Catholic Church in Chicago, Illinois is also known as Old St. Pats. It was founded by Irish immigrants as the first English speaking parish in the city of Chicago in 1846. The church was then constructed and dedicated in 1856. The church building was designed in a Romanesque style by two of Chicagos earliest practicing architects - Augustus Bauer and Asher Carter.
Its survival makes it the oldest public building in the City of Chicago and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The hot-dipped galvanized steel gates and stair railing that were installed recently were artistically fabricated to complement the church and exterior Renaissance design.
