Parish Mission Statement

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. (Go, Make, Baptize, Teach)

We are a community of Catholic Christians who desire to grow closer to the living God. It is seen in the way we…

  • build Christ-like relationships with others (Go),
  • help people to fall in love with God (Make),
  • fall deeper in love with God by entering the life of the church through the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist (Baptize),
  • serve and witness inspired by the Holy Spirit (Teach).

We do this because we are children of God who long for all to share in eternal life.

LEARN MORE ABOUT ANGELS!

Are you interested in Angels?  This week our seminarian, Eric Ouellette, will begin a series of presentations on Angels: what they are, why they matter, and their role in God's creation.  We will look at what both Scripture and various saints and theologians have said about angels and talk about why they are a serious part of our faith, not an outdated superstition.  If this is something that interests you, mark your calendars for July 26th at 7:00 PM in the School.  This is open to everyone, so invite your friends!

 

 

Old Home Day!!!

The First Congregational Church Old Home Day Committee would like to invite anyone from St. Patrick who may be interested to be involved and participate in serving the community the weekend of September 18th.  Our church members have much to do for prior set-up, helping out during the day, and clean up on Sunday morning.  We would welcome those who may enjoy volunteering with our many sub-committees.  If you are interested in volunteering, contact Cheryl Hirsch at cherylann1964@comcast.net  
         

REGISTRATION FOR FAITH LIFE IS OPEN!

In the Fall we will begin using A Family of Faith by Sophia Press.  As we have in the past, we will follow a family based formation model.  This model brings the entire family together and involves them in the program.  As a family, you will come and grow closer to Jesus!  Is there a lot of work involved for families?  How much time will this program take?  No.  There are two lessons to teach each month, along with a variety of family and child activities.  Each lesson should take no more than 30-45 minutes to complete, and requires minimal preparation on the part of the parent.  For what age children has this program been developed?  Because this program focuses on teaching the faith to parents and helping them make it an organic part of family life, it is perfect for parents with children of all ages.  For example, a monthly feature called "Your Catholic Home" gives specific advice for ways to make the Faith a regular part of each day.  The Children's Activity Books are recommended for children in grades K-8, and features engaging activities at various grade levels.  Parents can skip the activities they believe are too elementary or too advanced for their child.  We invite you to register for the program now and join us in the Fall.  All registration materials can be found on the parish website or at the parish office.  If you have any questions, please email Adam Castor, Director of Faith Life, at faithlifeformation@comcast.net
