The Rosminians were founded by an Italian priest, Blessed Antonio Rosmini, in 1828. Only seven years later he sent one of his earliest followers with two companions to England at the request of Bishop Baines, Vicar of the Western District.
In 1847 the order was asked to take charge of Newport, and in 1854 it also took charge of Cardiff.
St Patrick's is the only parish administered by the Rosminians in Newport, together with three parishes in Cardiff.
As members of St. Patrick's Parish Newport, we share in the love of Jesus Christ through our baptism and commitment to the values expressed in the Gospel.
Our aim is to gather as a community worshipping together, supporting one another in spiritual growth and providing support for all our members through liturgy, worship, education, social events, care groups and the simple enjoyment of being with one another.
As followers of Jesus Christ we are called to use wisely the many gifts and talents that have been given to us in building a community of love and service, responding with compassion to both the spiritual and corporal needs of our Parish and the wider community.
