Welcome to Saint Patrick Parish in Stoneham, Mass.

 

WELCOME TO SAINT PATRICK CHURCH 

 

OUR MISSION STATEMENT     

 

        In communion with the Roman Catholic Church throughout the world, St. Patrick Parish seeks to further the mission of Jesus Christ: that all may know God’s love for them, and grow in union with God and one another.  With the Sacred Liturgy at the center of our parish life, we are formed by the Word of God and strengthened by the Eucharist.  We move from the table of the Lord to proclaim God’s presence in our world today through a variety of ministries.  Manifesting the life of the Holy Spirit in our midst, we strive to be a welcoming community where faith finds expression in service.

Prayer of Thanksgiving

God of all blessings,
source of all life,
giver of all grace:

We thank you for the gift of life:
for the breath that sustains us,
for the food of this earth that nurtures us,
for the love of family and friends
without which there would be no life.

We thank you for the mystery of creation:
for the beauty that the eye can see,
for the joy that the ear may hear,
for the unknown that fills the universe with wonder,
for the expanse of space that draws us beyond our selves.

We thank you for our families who nurture us,
for friends who love us by choice,
for companions at work who share our burdens and daily tasks,
for strangers who welcome us into their midst,
for people from other lands who call us to grow in understanding,
for children who lighten our moments with delight,
for the unborn, who offer us hope for the future.

We thank you for this day:
for life and one more day to love,
for opportunity and one more day to work for justice and peace,
for neighbors and one more person to love and by whom be loved,
for your grace and one more experience of your presence,
for your promise to be with us, to be our God, and to give us salvation.

For these, and all blessings,
we give you thanks, eternal, loving God,
through Jesus Christ we pray.   

Amen.

Remember Me.

            Every Friday we have a Eucharistic Adoration from 12 noon to 5:15 pm.  During the hour from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm we pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and the Holy Rosary.  Please join us as we raise all our petitions in prayer with the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  One of the missionaries of Fatima, Sister Lucia, said the salvation of the world will come before the Blessed Sacrament.  Jesus asks all of us to watch with Him for one hour, to sit in gratitude before Him in the Holy Eucharist, and ask for His help for our families and the world. Come and be a part of our history.
