St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church, 196 St. Patrick Street near Dundas Street was designed by Gundry & Langley in 1869-70. It was one of Toronto’s first Roman Catholic churches, initially serving a predominantly Irish congregation. As the Irish gradually moved to other Toronto neighbourhoods, St. Patrick’s continued to serve many other ethnic congregations. In the early 1900s, it became Toronto’s first Italian parish. By 1865, it had become a Portuguese parish; in 1970s, a Korean and Chinese parish; and currently, it serves a largely Chinese congregation. St. Patrick’s was renamed Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church in 1908.
