St. Patrick Parish began as a mission site in 1857 and the first church was built at the current location of 920 Fulton Street in Grand Haven in 1872.  In 1911, St. Anthony’s Church was formed in Robinson Township and became a mission parish of St. Patrick’s.  The current church was opened in 1957 after the old church was torn down to make room for Route 31.  The Family Center was added in 1973 and in 2012, both parishes merged into the St. Patrick - St. Anthony Parish.  Masses are held Saturdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays  at 8 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. weekly.  Everyone is welcome.
