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.
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.
Pope Benedict XVI has announced a special Year of Faith to help Catholics appreciate the gift of faith, deepen their relationship with God and strengthen their commitment to sharing faith with others. This important year begins Oct. 11, 2012 – the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council as well as the 20th anniversary of the Catechism of the Catholic Church – and concludes Nov. 24, 2013 – the feast of Christ the King.
During this Year of Faith, it is his hope that Catholics turn back to Jesus and enter into a deeper relationship with Him through opening the “door of faith” (see Acts 14:27). The “door of faith” is opened at Baptism, but during this significant year Catholics are called to open it again and rediscover and renew their relationship with Christ and His Church.
"What the world is in particular need of today is the credible witness of people enlightened in mind and heart by the word of the Lord, and capable of opening the hearts and minds of many to the desire for God and for true life, life without end."
- Pope Benedict XVI
O God our Father,
In Jesus you call all Christian families and homes to be signs of living faith. By the light of the Holy Spirit, lead us to be thankful for the gift of faith, and by that gift may we grow in our relationship with Jesus, your Son, and be confident witnesses to Christian hope and joy to all we meet. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
When you participate, your gift will be securely transferred directly into the parish bank account. And you won’t have to remember to write a check or stop by the ATM on Sundays!... read more
