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.

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about


When his mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found with child through the Holy Spirit.
Joseph her husband, since he was a righteous man, yet unwilling to expose her to shame, decided to divorce her quietly.
Such was his intention when, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, son of David, 
do not be afraid to take Mary your wife into your home.
For it is through the Holy Spirit that this child has been conceived in her. She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.”
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall name him Emmanuel, which means “God is with us.” When Joseph awoke, he did as the angel of the Lord had commanded him and took his wife into his home. He had no relations with her until she bore a son, and he named him Jesus.

- MT 1:18-25
