  • Parishioners who want to come in private prayer can do so during the week and on weekends.  If others are present make sure to provide for the 6 feet of social distancing.                               
  • Sunday still remains the Lord's Holy Day during this time of turbulence.  Take time to view Mass on TV or online, read the Scriptures, attend to daily prayer, pray as a family, spend time with the Rosary and/or the divine Mercy Chaplet.                                                                                      
  • Bishop Quinn encourages us all to join in fasting, abstinence and prayer for the sick and the dying and for those caring for them.                         
  • St. Patrick's Bulletin will be available on our website (see below) and  hard copies will be in the Parish Hall each Saturday by 10 am.

Children from age 3 to 6 hear and learn about the Gospel in a way that is understandable for them.  All children at Mass are welcome to come forward before the Gospel is read and return after the homily.  This is held at Sunday Mass throughout the year.

Generations of Faith is for all members and ages of the Parish.  It is designed to educate our children and youth about the basics of our faith and allows adults to answer their questions about the Catholic faith, explain religious traditions and help them grow in their faith.  It is held six times per year from September through March.  Each session begins at 5:30 p.m.. with a potluck meal, followed by a program and is 2 hours in length.  Session include "break away" time for the pre-school through grade school ages.  No registration necessary.
