Locked and difficult to get into, but we were kindly let in in the side door. Very unusual architecture for a church, but beautiful and well worth the visit.

St Patrick's is a beautiful stone built church, with a quiet prayerful interior. Built with the support of the Irish soldiers stationed in the area at the time, it was dedicated for worship in 1844. Well worth a visit.

The fathers wouldn't mind if you asked them to open up the church so you can look at the amazing altar piece and spectacular high roof! Student mass is offered on Sundays 18:30

Of course I am biased when it comes to this Church. When I visit Grahamstown for the Festival I celebrate Sunday Mass here. So I do find it a home from home so to speak and the architecture adds to the experience.
