REKINDLE

Rekindle is a week-long virtual event taking place from June 8-14, 2020 and it is free!

*** URGENT UPDATE ***

Dear People of St. Patrick Parish,

As much as we all want to celebrate Mass together in our Church, St. Patrick Church will not reopen until approval is given at the State level, County level and finally from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and our Bishop Michael Barber, SJ, of the Diocese of Oakland. St. Patrick Church will also be adhering to all CDC guidelines to allow us to open safely for everyone.

Please continue to pray for our world, especially for the People of our St. Patrick Community.

God  Bless,

Fr. Larry Young

Pastor
