Community Ministries

On the second Sunday of the month, St Patrick’s sponsors Coffee and Donuts after Mass for visitors and parishioners. It’s always a good time of fellowship and chatter. Catch up on what’s happening at St. Pats! Oh, and did I mention donuts? If you would be interested in hosting or serving at this event, please call the parish office.
Yearly in March, St Patrick’s celebrates St. Paddy’s Day in a big way! And in early November, our parishioners offer a chicken noodle dinner to the parish and public. Please contact the parish office or talk to Sue Strauman to help in a big or small way. All hands need to be on deck for these reach-out events and your call will be most appreciated.

On the second Saturday of every month, St. Patrick’s parishioners gather together to serve our community. We come together with compassion and joy to share the love of Christ, helping others in a multitude of ways. We have painted shutters, moved refrigerators, cleaned up yards and assisted the elderly or shut-in with tasks that are too cumbersome.

Do you have a need that we can help with? Contact Lisa Owens to request service or volunteer to assist.

Presently, there are two small groups meeting within the parish.

The first is a “Good News People” Group that meets for 14 weeks, as interest indicates. This group is a study on social justice and employs sacred scripture, prayers, discussion, readings and reflections and Church teaching. It requires a commitment to the journey and utilizes a workbook. If you are interested in taking part in an upcoming Good News People group please contact the parish office.

The second group meets Thursday evenings at 6:30 in the conference room to discuss a chosen book. All are welcome and no sign up is necessary. Come any Thursday you are able to!

Everyone wants to feel welcomed, loved and supported in a Christian community! We want to foster a welcoming spirit to our guests. The Welcome Committee hasn’t been formed yet, but looks to be. Currently a coordinator for this important committee is needed. It helps the Pastor introduce himself and parish ministries to newcomers, and puts them at ease in a family-style dinner event. Held periodically, the Welcome Dinner is open to new families at St Patrick’s and held, depending on numbers, at the rectory or in the Parish Hall. If you would like to help, contact our parish office, or speak to Fr. David.
