A Message from Our Pastor

Dear People of St. Patrick Parish & Visitors:

The Responsorial Psalm 6, tells us today to let all the earth cry out to God with joy. Why are we so joyful? What’s the big deal? 

We turn to the Gospel of John 14:23, “Whoever loves me will keep my word, says the Lord, and my Father will love him and we will come to him.”   

We are joyful because a loving and forgiving God created us and a beautiful world. He only asks that we love him in return and our neighbors. He asks us to keep his commandments, which would really make our world a better place without sin. 

We are joyful because God sent Jesus to teach us to know the Father and accept the Father’s words as handed onto us by Jesus.  

Yes, Jesus suffered and died for us so we can be baptized and receive the  ‘Seven Sacraments.’ 

Jesus rose from the dead as He said. He ascended into heaven to pray for us, forgive us and await our entrance into heaven, when that time comes.  

He promised to send us the Holy Spirit to guide us during our lives and He did.  

We are not orphans, Jesus is present to us in the Mass and every time we receive Holy Communion. 

We are happy because we know that when we die, we can go to heaven to be with God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit forever and ever. 

We know we are loved by God. Are we willing to accept that love and live as we should? A joyful promise made, will we take it, live it and try to make our whole world a joyful place as God created it? 

God Bless, 

Fr. Larry Young

Pastor of St. Patrick Church


2017 Bishop's Appeal

Bishop Michael C. Barber has chosen “All God’s People – United in Faith” as the theme for the 2017 Bishop’s Appeal. For most of us, our experience of Church is at our parish. The Church is, however, much more than that.  We are all called in mission to serve the Church and its people through our parish, our diocese and universally. At St. Patrick's, please let us all make our commitment to the 2017 Bishop’s Appeal with joy and thanksgiving to God that we can and hopefully will, reach our parish goal of $32,606.70 and with God’s help go above and beyond.
