The Pro-Cathedral of Saint Patrick in Newark is a former (or proto-) cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church in the United States. It is located in Newark, New Jersey. It was built in 1846 and served as the seat of its prelate bishop until the completion of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart.
The building itself is on the national register of historic sites, and has undergone extensive rehabilitation over the past fifteen years following years of declining membership. Several traditions remain, connecting the parish to its history as the "Old Cathedral" of Newark, including the 12:15 Ash Wednesday Liturgy with the Archbishop, the 12:15 Sunday Liturgy on Easter in memory of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin, the annual Newark Fire Department memorial Mass, and many other archdiocesan and Irish-heritage events. The parish is also the national shrine to Our Lady of El Quinche.
