Welcome, we are blessed to have you.

“Through evangelization, Saint Patrick’s Parish welcomes others to grow in God’s love by living and proclaiming the teachings of Jesus Christ.”

What a Blessed  Lenten weekend at St. Patrick's Parish with Deacon Mike, Father John Fitzgerald, and Caleb Curnow, who received The Rite of Election. This Rite celebrates the Communities recognition and support for him to receive the sacraments of Initiation at the Easter vigil.  Congratulations, Caleb, and thank you Marie Dahlstrand for all your work with R.C.I.A.

 We are blessed to have you all.
