In the early 1950s, a few Catholic families in and around Perry met in their respective homes to pray together and say the rosary. From 1958 to 1961 the meeting place changed on Sundays to the Georgia Décor Cafeteria to hold Mass which was offered by visiting priests from Middle Georgia. In 1961 a storefront at 742 Main Street was rented as a mission church and named “Our Lady of Fatima” Chapel. In 1968 the Catholic families of this church convinced the Bishop of Savannah to build a church in Perry. A church named St. Patrick Catholic Church was built on St. Patrick’s Drive on land donated by Yates and Nannette Green. The first Mass was celebrated on April 3, 1969. In 2004 the church moved to a new location at 2410 Hwy 127 in Kathleen.
