St. Patrick’s Jubilee YearIn celebration of the 150th anniversary of St. Patrick Catholic Church, there will be many opportunities throughout the year for our community to join together to commemorate the past, rejoice in the present, and look forward to the future! Here you will find news about upcoming Jubilee Year events and activities.
40 Hours Devotion
In 1853, Bishop John Neumann established the 40 Hours Eucharistic Adoration Devotion in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Sixteen Years later, when our parish was founded, the devotion arrived in Kennett Square and has been a part of our parish community ever since.
Join us in this Jubilee Year as we hold our Annual 40 Hours Devotion. We will welcome to the parish Fr. Stephen DeLacy who is the Vocation Director for the Diocesan Priesthood. These days will be days of prayer, praise and great preaching as Father DeLacey leads us in worship on March 10, 11, 12 at 7 PM.
