Welcome to St. Patrick's!

St-Patrick-Statue
We are so glad you found us! We hope that the information you find here helps you know who we are, what we’re about, and how to get involved. The best way to get to know us, of course, is to visit us as we gather at Mass.

We have been organized here since 1865 as a small, warm and friendly parish. Our Weekly Bulletin link will bring you closer to the activities of the parish. We hope and pray that you will grow with us in the Christian faith as we journey together with the Lord.

It is our hope that this site will make it easier for you to check on details that you wish to get at right away! If you have any questions or need further information, please don’t hesitate to contact us by email or phone.

God bless you.

Year of the Eucharist

Our three parishes began a “Year of the Eucharist” with the feast of Corpus Christi Sunday June 3, 2018.

We are being invited by God to enter more deeply into the mystery of Jesus, truly present among us in the Most Blessed Sacrament. To help facilitate a deeper devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist there will be a “cool quote” included in the bulletin each week from the saints about our belief in the Eucharistic presence of Jesus.

In addition to the cool quote, Fr. David is leading a special Holy Hour of Adoration each Sunday afternoon at 3:00pm at St. Patrick’s in Havana. During this time Fr. David and the Holy Spirit will teach you how to pray more deeply and you will experience a deeper peace in your soul as well as a deeper union with God. Please arrange your schedule to come as often as you can and witness the transformation of your own heart in Christ Jesus.

Further, Fr. David will be leading a summer bible study on the Eucharist. We will begin by studying the 6th chapter of St. John’s Gospel. It will be held at St. Patrick’s in Havana at 7-8pm on Thursdays beginning June 14th. Through this study, you will gain a much deeper knowledge and understanding of the gift and mystery of the Holy Eucharist.

Weekly Bulletins

Each week St. Patrick’s publishes a bulletin containing mass times and event information for the upcoming week. Check out the current bulletin to see what’s happening!

Sacraments

The Church recognizes seven sacraments or ceremonies that point to what is sacred, significant and important for Catholics. They have a visible and invisible reality; a reality open to all the human senses. We can only grasp their God-given depths with eyes of faith.

Location

St. Patrick’s is located on Orange Street in Havana, IL. There is also a parking lot off of Plum Street, one block North of Dearborn.
