Mass and Eucharist

Consider daily Mass as an opportunity to participate in the Mass and receive the Eucharist while the dispensation for weekend Mass is still in effect.



First Friday Eucharistic Adoration

Beginning Oct. 2nd, St. Patrick will offer a half hour of Eucharistic Adoration after the 8:30 AM Mass.



Second Collection 12/12 & 12/13

The second collection December 12th & 13th will benefit the Retired Religious of the Archdiocese. Years of serving for little pay have left religious retirement communities without enough retirement savings.
Thank you for your prayers and generosity.
