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.


Click on the button below to select any "Talent" you have, and also obtain input from your family members about theirs. We will contact you as the opportunity for contributing your talent presents itself in our Parish family.
