We are now in the cold and flu season once again. As we have noted before during cold and flu season, there is no requirement for a hand-shake at the ‘Sign of Peace’ if a parishioner is uncomfortable with that greeting. Please respect the right of parishioners to offer a verbal greeting of peace by turning toward those near them without shaking hands. Read More »

St. Patrick Music Ministry
Singing is the highest form of human expression. It is a ministry that belongs to all the people of God. It is an activity in which everyone can participate no matter the skill level. You have probably been caught humming a tune now and then. Music is contagious. Whether you are a member of the Choir or a Cantor, the goal of St. Patrick’s Music Ministry is to enhance the spirit of worship and to assist the congregation in furthering their prayer. What better way to serve the Lord than by encouraging the power of congregational singing helping the church express and experience the unity of the body of Christ.
By joining the Music Ministry, you will be singing hymns filled with lyrics that are sure to uplift your Spirit to God. Music is our gift and a statement of gratitude to God.
Other ministries are spotlighted on our Ministry Spotlights page.
“Every Life: Cherished, Chosen, Sent.”
“More than four thousand innocent lives are taken each day in this

whose lady holds high the torch of welcome to human life.”
