St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church, Convent, Rectory, and School is an historic Roman Catholic church complex at 251 Oxford Street in Providence, Rhode Island within the Diocese of Providence.

Description[edit]

The main church building is a large structure of red brick with red sandstone trim, designed by Martin & Hall and built over a 25-year period ending in 1915. The rectory, located east of the church, was designed by Ambrose Murphy and built in 1924-25, and is also faced in red brick. The convent stands west of the church; it is a 3-1/2 story red brick structure also designed by Murphy and built in 1929. Behind the convent stands the school building, which faces Gordon Avenue. It is a two-story red brick building.[3]

The complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]
