August 12th CEO at St. Patrick Parish Center 7pm-8:30pm
Please come hear St. Patrick's own Molly Larkin

speak on her faith journey begun in Eucharistic Adoration where
she encountered He who is Love.  Just as Christ's heart was broken,
pierced and emptied out for us, so too was she emptied out for
Him...on a path laced with suffering, sacrifice, saints, and sweet
surrender.  There is no charge and all are welcome to attend.
An ice cream social will follow and free child care will be provided.

33 Days to Morning Glory is a parish wide book study that is a 
transforming journey into the loving and maternal heart of our Blessed Mother.  

33 Days to Morning Glory brings all of us to the merciful heart of Jesus through
his mother. All parishioners and friends of the parish are welcome and 
encouraged to attend.  We will begin the week of August 17 and finish by 
consecrating ourselves to Jesus through Mary on Wednesday, October 7th
SIGN-UP WEEKEND: August 1/2, August 8/9, August 15/16 after the Masses.  
For your convenience studies will be held each day of the week.

Hearing the call to come into the Catholic Church?

that call. Our fall RCIA class is being formed now. If you are 
interested in coming into the Church or receiving the sacrament of 
Confirmation as an adult, please contact Deacon Sean at 362-7966 or
