Holy Week Food Drive – April 13/14 (Collection)

After each Mass on April 6 and 7, we will be distributing 300 reusable bags (donated by a parishioner) with the St. Patrick Jubilee logo. We encourage you to use these bags as you shop since it helps the environment and also raises the profile of St. Patrick Parish. Along with the reusable bags, we will have Giant paper bags and a list of staples for the Food Cupboard. The following weekend, April 13/14, the KACS truck will be parked outside of church. Please
bring your food in the Giant paper bag inserted into the reusable bag. When you drop off the food, you will be able to keep the reusable bag. In addition, KACS is always in need of funds to purchase meat and fresh produce, so checks and cash are always welcome!

St. Patrick Jubilee Celtic Cross

During our 150th Jubilee Year, our parish hopes to bring the love of Jesus and the power of prayer into the homes of our parish. And your family can be a part of this effort by hosting our Parish Jubilee Celtic Cross. By hosting this cross in your home for a week, your family will have a concrete reminder of our larger parish family in your home and a new way to engage the life of prayer. The Celtic Cross symbolizes eternity, emphasizing the eternal and infinite love of God. The circle in the middle of the Celtic Cross represents the divine mystery of how, through crucifixion and resurrection, Jesus continues to bestow his love and hope of salvation to all of mankind. What a beautiful way to live our Jubilee Motto: “to share the joy of the Gospel” in this special year! Click here to sign up for a week.

Jubilee Year: Volunteers Needed for Planning

Various committees continue to plan activities in anticipation of the parish Jubilee celebration in 2019. As we develop these plans, we find that we need additional help in two important areas: Liturgical Celebrations and Community Social Activities. Both of these committees are looking at a number of events to be held throughout the Jubilee year. Additional volunteers are needed now to help develop these events for the parish. No previous experience is necessary – just a willingness to help. If you are interested and would like to participate, everyone is welcome. Please contact Candy in the parish office at 610-444-4364.
