St. Patrick's Children's Home operated from 1932 until the early 60. It was located at 5945 Franklin Blvd. It was run by the Sisters Of Mercy. The original home was in Grass Valley. It is now just a Catholic school. I believe some of the record may still be there. Monsignor Kavanah has been here since the beginning, so you may wish to start with him. He lives at the St. Rose rectory next to the school.
