Novena for Life

NOVENA FOR LIFE

NOVENA FOR LIFE St Patrick Knights of Columbus is sponsoring a "Novena for Life" from September 26 to October 4.The Knights encourage parishioners to attend the Parish confessions, Mass, and rosary on the afternoon of September 26 to kick off this Novena. This date is also tied to the beginning of this Fall's 40 Days for Life campaign and our regularly scheduled Officer's meeting at 7:00 p.m. that night. "The protection of life is a sustained prayer intention of the Church, and in particular of the Knights of Columbus. Knights remain firmly committed to defending the right to life of every human being – from the moment of conception to natural death.”

“Do you want to leave me, too? - Why I am Catholic

We can hear the pain in Jesus’ question:
“Do you want to leave me, too?”

I am Catholic because of Jesus. I know that life without Jesus lacks meaningful purpose; it lacks true direction, and I cannot imagine life without Jesus...

Jesus is saying - This is Enough

Jesus is looking at us and His Church from the Cross and saying “This is Enough.” Jesus is shining His Light on the Darkness to bring Renewal, Cleansing and Healing to His Church and a returning to Him, in His Divine Mercy and Love.
Jesus says yes that is who I am, “the living bread that came down from heaven.” And I hide behind My humanity. I am God made Man.
Today we sit at the feet of Jesus, who is present to us. We come to listen to Him, learn from Him, be fed by Him, and unite ourselves to Him.

Receive What You Are - Become What You Receive

We are called by Christ to become the Eucharist we receive at this altar: giving thanks for what we have received by sharing those gifts – our talents, our riches, ourselves – to work our own miracles of creating communities of joyful faith.

Come Away and Rest With Me

Jesus gives us a direct invitation in Today’s Gospel. Hear Him say this to you.  “You, my child, please come away by yourself to a deserted place and rest for a while with Me.”

At the heart of this invitation is a longing in Jesus’ heart that we rest from those burdens which weigh us down. We need to “come away” and “rest” because there are many things in our life that are not part of God’s will and impose a burden upon ourselves.

Exciting news! Ground Breaking to Commence

Exciting news!
Ground Breaking to commence at
St. Patrick Church


Dear Fellow Parishioners:
It is with long awaited anticipation that Father Carroll, along with the Capital Campaign Committee, announces the Ground Breaking for our first major Capital Improvement project. Construction is slated to begin in the courtyard on July 23, 2018. To commemorate this occasion, we will have a ground breaking ceremony on Sunday, July 22 following the 10:45 A.M. Mass. At this time, we will offer thanksgiving to our Lord, the Giver of all things good, for the generous contributions from our parish family that enabled this project to begin. We will also pray that this project will proceed safely and according to plan to bring us one important step closer to restoring and preserving our beautiful and historic church.
Please join us in the courtyard outside the rectory for this exciting ground breaking! Light refreshments will be served. See you this Sunday, July 22 following the 10:45 A.M. Mass.

Pastoral Council Missions

Jesus gives a beautiful image of a man who plants seed and slowly it sprouts, grows and produces fruit, and He “knows not how.” I wonder if we stop and think about the seeds that are planted and grow within our Parish. Seeds are planted, and we know not how they grow, but only see the fruit they bear.

Review the Pastoral Council Missions and Chairpersons listed below, and the Ministries within each Mission and see where God may be calling you to serve Him. The truth is that each one of us is packed with unbelievable potential that God wants to bring to fruition. He wants to bring forth from our lives glorious blessings for our Parish. All we must do is allow Him to work.

America's 242nd Independence Day

America's 242nd Independence Day will be celebrated on 
Wednesday, July 4, 2018.
Read and Pray the Prayer written in 1791
for our Nation, which still applies today!



First two paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence:

"When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness."

Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, our Lord and God!

When you love someone, you want to be a part of their life. Love seeks a union of heart, mind, soul, and life with your beloved.

Reflect upon how God feels about us, His Beloved Sons and Daughters. Think of how Jesus felt hanging on the Cross, the love He has for us.

The Eucharist is a simple, but genius means for God to provide us a way to come into communion with Him, to join with Him, to become more like Him. 

The Eucharist is everything.  It’s all things, the fullness of Life, Love, Eternal Salvation, Mercy, Grace, Happiness, etc. Simply put, the Eucharist IS God.  Therefore, the Eucharist is all that God is.

The Eucharist is the only way in which we truly receive Jesus fully into our body and soul, as Saint Paul says, we have “a participation in the blood of Christ…” and “a participation in the body of Christ…”

The precious Body and Blood of Christ in the Eucharist is not a mere symbol – it is God, in the flesh. It is the ultimate Fatherly hug and embrace, the ultimate act of Love. His Kiss, a sacrament in which He gives us His total self, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.

When you receive the Eucharist, envision Jesus embracing you and giving you all that you need from the inside out.

Presence - The Mystery of the Eucharist

CLICK IMAGE BELOW TO LOGIN TO FORMED


Prepare for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Every week, we gather for Mass and take part in an astounding miracle: the miracle of God giving His very self to us in the Eucharist. However, it can be difficult to fully appreciate this gift we receive.
Presence is a beautiful three-part video series that explores the mystery of God’s love for us expressed in the Eucharist. It will leave you with a true understanding and love for the Mass.
