“Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Lobby closed during school pickup
As we forge ahead during this fall season, with the opening of our Parish School and trying our best to keep anyone attending St. Patrick Parish safe, we are learning and adapting to new protocols.
In order to keep the children and everyone else safe, we have asked the parents to avoid cutting through the Church lobby at pick-up. Therefore, effective immediately we will be locking the doors to the Parish from 2:15 pm until 3:15 pm. This will ensure that the cherubs and you, the parishioners, avoid unnecessary contact or use of the facilities. The church will re-open at 3:15 pm and will remain open until 5:00 pm. For those attending Adoration on Mondays and Fridays until 4:00 pm please make sure you come before the doors are secured for the hour. Thank you for your understanding!

Scam Alert Warning
Fr. Mario's name is being used in a scam to try and extract gift cards from parishioners. We have had a few calls today with parishioners having received a text purportedly from Fr. Mario asking them to purchase $300 gift cards and to scratch of the security number and forward a picture of the gift card and security number.
DO NOT to respond to the text. It is not from Fr. Mario and is an effort to scam them. Fr. Mario would never ask parishioners to forward a picture of a gift card to him. These did not come from Fr. Mario, please do not respond to these requests.
Any requests will be sent via the bulletin, the web site, or announced at Mass.

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares
of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
cast into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

Prayer to Our Lady Of Guadalupe - Intercessor Of The Unborn
“Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much.
I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have
spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.”
“The greatest destroyer of peace in the world
today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a
Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Prayer for the Protection of the Unborn
Give us the grace... When the sacredness of life before birth is attacked, to stand up and proclaim that no one ever has the authority to destroy unborn life.
~ John Paul II
Every Life: Cherished, Chosen, Sent.
“I know without a doubt, that abortion is a violent act of murder and exploitation. And I know that our responsibility is to work and pray without ceasing for its end.”
— Denver Archbishop Samual J. Aquila - January 22, 2013
Abortion and racism are both symptoms of a fundamental human error. The error is thinking that when someone stands in the way of our wants, we can justify getting that person out of our lives. Abortion and racism stem from the same poisonous root, selfishness.
— Alveda King
