"Exists Today" means that the church building still exists. It does not necessarily mean that the church is actually used for worship. All the cemeteries still exist of course.

1. The United Church of Canada was formed in 1925 from a union of Canadian Methodists, Congregationalists and most Presbyterians. The Bocabec and Digdeguash/Elmsville United Churches had been Methodist prior to the union. The Bocabec Presbyterian Church did
not join the union.
2. This cemetery is located behind the Bocabec United Church but, so far as I know, it is independent of the church.
3. This cemetery is a short distance north of Christ Church, on the opposite (west) side of the road. I don't know if it is part of the church, or an independent community cemetery.

The churches and links listed below are from outside of the parish, but contain a large number of Saint Patrick residents. In fact, for the late 1700s and early 1800s, the Anglican and Methodist records are probably the only source of church vital statistics for the parish.
