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.

PRECIOUS  BLOOD DEVOTION

 

Thursday Evenings ~ Lower Church at 7:00 pm

 

Do you have a special attraction or devotion to the

Precious Blood of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ?

 

            In Saint John XXIII Apostolic Letter “On Promoting Devotion to the  Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ” he states,

 

“Nourished by His Body & Blood, sharing the Divine strength that has sustained countless martyrs, they will stand up to the slings and arrows of each day’s fortunes - even if need be to martyrdom itself for the sake of Christian virtue and the Kingdom of God.  Theirs will be the experience of that burning love which made St. John Chrysostom cry out, “Let us, then, come back from that table like lions breathing out fire, thus becoming terrifying to the devil, and remaining mindful of our Head and of the love He has shown for us.  This Blood, when worthily received, drives away demons and puts them at a distance from us, and even summons to us angels and the Lord of Angels,”” 

 

            We will be gathering for a most special and powerful prayer devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ in the lower Church on Thursday evenings.  All are most welcome!

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.
