A NOTE FROM FATHER STEVE . . .
My heart was moved in a special way on Thursday, July 7th, when I went to Thursday night Eucharistic Adoration and saw so many people praying the Rosary for the sick of our Parish, for the Walsh family and Msgr. Ketcham. I believe there were over 70+ people joined in prayer together. This is just one way we live out the Motto:
ONE HEART, ONE MIND.
We live our lives for each other. St. Patrick community shows that when someone is in need, especially those who are sick, they are never alone.
Every Thursday night and during the days on Friday we are blessed to have Eucharistic Adoration. This is a Gift of Love. Eucharistic Adoration is extremely powerful for our Parish. I would like to encourage all of you to come on Thursday or Friday for this Gift of Love. It would be an awesome sight to see eachweek our church filled with people coming to Eucharistic Adoration even if it is for 5 minutes. It is a sacrifice we can give to Jesus. He sacrificed everything for us. Come and See and spend time with Jesus by yourself or with your family. Also encourage others to come. You will be amazed to see how your life will change and see our Parish grow and become more vibrant.
