The parish of Saint Patrick was inaugurated in 1887.
A note from Father Henry Joyner, pastor of the Assumption Parish in Grand Falls, tells us that the mission of Limestone, NB was inaugurated by Fr. J. J. O'Leary, pastor of Grand Falls from 1870 to 1889. Fr. Raymond Pennafort, O.F.M. was the first Franciscan to celebrate mass in the old St. Patrick church that was destroyed by fire on June 6, 1953.
Father Pennafort's first mass was celebrated March 3, 1923, after Bishop Chiasson of Chatham on February 26, 1923, authorised the Franciscans to take over the mission of Limestone Siding.
Ten years after the inauguration in 1897, a church was built. This church is the one that was destroyed by fire in 1948.
I arise today Through the strength of heaven; Light of the sun, Splendour of fire, Speed of lightning, Swiftness of the wind, Depth of the sea, Stability of the earth, Firmness of the rock.
I arise today Through God's strength to pilot me; God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me, God's eye to look before me, God's ear to hear me, God's word to speak for me, God's hand to guard me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me, God's hosts to save me Afar and anear, Alone or in a mulitude.
Christ shield me today Against wounding; Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in the eye that sees me, Christ in the ear that hears me.
I arise today Through the mighty strength Of the Lord of creation
