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.

Sacrtistans Needed:

 

Did you ever wonder how the church is always set-up for the weekend Masses?  Items for the Mass are always in place, the candles are lit, the lights and sound system are turned on, and the books used for the Mass are in place.  All of this is done by parishioners who participate in the Sacristan Ministry.

 

At Saint Patrick’s, the Sacristan’s general responsibilities are to help and maintain the worship space and to have in-place the necessary items needed by the Priest or Deacon to properly and prayerfully celebrate Mass and other liturgies, in a smooth and flowing manner.  Preparation in the key to a prayerful celebration.  Following Mass, the Sacristan prepares the Church for the next Mass or Liturgical Service.

 

There is currently a great need for sacristans at our Masses.  Prayerfully consider this ministry especially if you regularly attend a particular Mass, and if you are interested please contact Deacon Frank at 781-438-2498.

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.
