A Message from Our Pastor

Dear People of St. Patrick Parish & Visitors:

 On this Sunday, we honor Jesus Christ as our King. We take time to try and understand just what that means. Jesus told us that His role of the Good Shepherd is to protect and guide the sheep. We count ourselves as the sheep that He leads through our Baptism. The shepherd  must  truly  love  and  care  for  the  sheep  in  his  flock.  Jesus  died  on  the  cross  to redeem every human being who has ever lived or will live until the time He calls all who have been good sheep and tried to follow Jesus. 

  When Jesus, our King, returns to the earth to lead us both, body and soul, into eternal life, at that time all sin, evil, hate, and wrongful things will no longer exist. The Kingdom of God will be totally restored to where God created it. 

  Do we believe this enough to be good, to love God and our neighbor and work to bring peace and love to all? 

  As we thank God, the Father, for sending Jesus as our King, we also know that God wants us to also help to take care of others. Do we practice the Corporal Works of Mercy in our daily lives and do we know them? 

1.  To feed the hungry 

2. To give drink to the thirty 

3. To clothe the naked 

4. To visit the imprisoned 

5. To shelter the homeless 

6. To visit the sick 

7. To bury the dead 

Next Sunday is the First Sunday of Advent, the start of the four weeks before Christmas. This Advent time will give us many opportunities to practice these Corporal Works  of Mercy.   

God Bless, 

Fr. Larry Young

Pastor of St. Patrick Church
