Jubilee Year Calendar
In 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! Please find an extensive calendar below of all the events that are in the works. Be sure to check back regularly, as more events and details will be added over time.
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.
