Welcome


St. Patrick's Parish is a warm, welcoming Catholic faith community that cherishes its past and looks with hope to the future. Inspired by the example of St. Patrick, we strive to make God's Word come alive through our celebration of the Eucharist and through service and generosity to each other and our community.

It is always a pleasure for us to see new people joining our spiritual family. We hope that you will let us know how we can be of service to you and how you might be able to help us spread the good news of the Gospel.

Since our beginnings, we encourage an attitude of ownership and responsibility so that each one of us will feel like a participant, rather than an observer or spectator. We invite you to stop by the Parish Office any weekday between 7:30 am and 4:30 pm for more information about our parish.


Our Mission - Nuestra Misión


We the people of St. Patrick's Parish formed and unified into the Body of Christ by our baptism, guided by the Holy Spirit, strive to fulfill God's will in active service to our parish family, our diocesan family, and our surrounding community.

Nosotros la gente de la Parroquia de San Patricio, formados y unificados en el Cuerpo de Cristo por nuestro Bautismo, guiados por el Espirito Santo, luchamos por cumplir la voluntad de Dios en el servicio activo a nuestra familia parroquial, nuestra familia Diocesana y nuestra comunidad circundante.



St. Patrick's Stewardship of Time, Talent and Treasure


The Bible refers to the church as the Body of Christ with Christ as its Head (1 Corinthians 12:27; Ephesians 5:23). Just as your body has many specialized parts, each with its own function, so the church is composed of many individuals, each with his own special function to perform - and contribution to make - to the rest of the Body. We encourage you to identify your talents, and ask God to show you how to use them for His glory.
Every Christian possesses both natural talents and spiritual gifts. Our natural abilities come to us at physical birth and are developed through life. Our spiritual gifts are imparted by the Holy Spirit, enabling us to minister to others in behalf of Christ.

Advent 2014


Preparing our hearts, our homes, our families for the Kingdom...

Oh, come, oh, come, Emmanuel, 
And ransom captive Israel, 
That mourns in lonely exile here 
Until the Son of God appear. 
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel 
Shall come to you, O Israel!

Oh, come, oh, come, our Lord of might, 
Who to your tribes on Sinai's height 
In ancient times gave holy law, 
In cloud and majesty and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel 
Shall come to you, O Israel!

Advent Prayer

Father, all powerful and ever-living God, we do well always and everywhere to give you thanks 
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
When he humbled himself to come among us, he fulfilled the plan you formed long ago and opened for us the way to salvation.

Now we watch for the day, 
hoping that the salvation promised us will be ours when Christ will come again in his glory.

And so, with all the choirs of angels in heaven we proclaim your glory and join in their unending hymn of praise:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, 
God of power and might, 
heaven and earth are full of your glory. 
Hosanna in the highest. 
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord 
Hosanna in the highest.

Rorate Caeli Desuper
(English Translation)

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One. 

Be not angry, O Lord, and remember no longer our iniquity : behold the city of thy sanctuary is become a desert, Sion is made a desert. Jerusalem is desolate, the house of our holiness and of thy glory, where our fathers praised thee. 

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One. 

We have sinned, and we are become as one unclean, and we have all fallen as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast crushed us by the hand of our iniquity. 

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One. 

See, O Lord, the affliction of thy people, and send him whom thou hast promised to send. Send forth the Lamb, the ruler of the earth, from the rock of the desert to the mount of the daughter of Sion, that he himself may take off the yoke of our captivity. 

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One. 

Be comforted, be comforted, my people; thy salvation shall speedily come. Why wilt thou waste away in sadness? why hath sorrow seized thee? I will save thee; fear not: for I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Redeemer. 

Drop down dew, ye heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain the Just One.
