The Congregation of the Brothers of St. Patrick or the Patrician Brothers as they are popularly known began in the small town of Tullow, Ireland on 2nd February, 1808. The Congregation was founded by Rt. Rev. Dr. Daniel Delaney, under the patronage of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. In 1846, the Brothers sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to Baltimore, USA and laid the foundation for their first mission abroad. In 1883, another group of Patricians arrived in Maitland, New South Wales, Australia. After establishing themselves, the brothers moved to Papua New Guinea, an island that needed the Brothers’ assistance.
In 1875, the first foundation of the Patrician Brothers was laid in Chennai, India. In 1961, Brothers were drawn to Kenya. In 2007, the Indian Province took up a mission in Ghana, Africa and in 2012, South Sudan and Dubai. In 2008, the Brothers completed 200 years of their existence as harbingers of education, touching and making a difference in the lives of many. Today, the Patrician Brothers run schools, colleges, boarding houses, technical institutions, non-formal education centres and other education related institutions in Ireland, United States of America, India, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Kenya and Ghana. The headquarters known as the Generalate is located at the Patrician Brothers’ Monastery, Ryde, Australia, and it has its headquarters known as the Provincialate in Mount St. Mary’s New Delhi.
In a burst of colours and community spirit, St. Patrick's Academy Bengaluru recently hosted its annual carnival, EUPHORIA. This year's carnival transported the attendees into a world of whimsy and enchantment by presenting a magic show and musical delights. The school grounds transformed into a kaleidoscope of vibrant offerings, with each corner displaying a new adventure. We experienced that the air was filled with the irresistible aroma of cotton candy, popcorn, dosa, and sizzling hot Biriyani. We couldn't stop appreciating the active participation of the students for showcasing their performances. The success of the event was not just in the numbers but in the smiles, laughter, and memories created.
30th October, 2023 was a momentous occasion that marked a significant milestone in the history of our cherished institution. The foundation stone for St.Patrick's Academy's remarkable new multipurpose building and auditorium was laid.
