The St Patrick's Catholic Church, East Gosford is part of the Diocese of Broken Bay.

"St Patrick's started its life as Our Lady of the Rosary Parish in Donnison Street, Gosford in 1876, and comprised of a church, presbytery, convent and school which was opened by the Sisters of St Joseph in 1910.

As the population of Gosford and surrounding areas grew, Our Lady of the Rosary Church became an island bordered by busy roads and a railway line, and was far too small.

Fr Patrick McManus took the decision to purchase land at East Gosford and erect St Patrick's Church for over 600 congregants, which was opened on 28/2/1965." [Sourced from: https://www.bbcatholic.org.au/gosford/our-parish/history].
