Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Weeks Readings: Jeremiah 23.1-6; Psalm 23; Ephesians 2.13-18; Mark 6.30-34.

We are like wayward sheep helplessly seeking our spiritual home. We experience a confusion of values that leaves us fearful, distressed, and lost. But the Good Shepherd gathers up a remnant of his people who are open to hearing his word of mercy,  and nourishes and restores them to health. Jesus,  even in the fatigue of his work, has compassion for his people and bestows on each his healing touch and the gift of his peace.

Next Week's Readings: 2 Kings 4.42-44; Psalm 145; Ephesians 4.1-6; John 6.1-15.

A Message from Our Pastor, Fr. Dominic...

                             

Did you get a chance to see the movie, Pope Francis: A Man of his Word?  There was a phrase that caught my attention.  Francis describes himself as "an apostle of the ear," and says it is his role to be a humble listener.  An apostle of the ear… When we lend somebody our ear, we need to draw close to that person.  This year, we have been praying that we might be attentive, that we might be apostles of the ear, as God reveals to us his vision for our parish.  I encourage you to keep praying this summer, because there is a small group of parishioners who are especially tasked with articulating concrete plans as to how we can live out God’s vision for our parish.  This group will seek to draw close to the Lord and lend him their ear.  Stay tuned for more news on this front.  read more »

ShareLife Campaign 2018

Dear fellow St. Patrick’s parishioners,

The 2018 ShareLife campaign is coming to a close in just 5 weeks (July 31st). I would like to provide an update as to our progress after the third collection weekend on May 27th. We have received $219,435 to date vs. our goal of $274,500 which puts us at 80%. To achieve our goal we need $55,065 in additional donations. This may seem like a lot of money but we have strength in numbers. Those numbers look like this…

  1. The $219,435 collected to date comes from just 800 families/individuals 
  2. There are over 8,000 registered families/individuals within the boundaries for St. Pats (after accounting for the new parish – Blessed Frederic Ozanam) 
  3. This leaves over 7,000 potential donors to collect $55,065 in the next 5 weeks


There are indeed so many worthy causes that call out for help in today’s world. read more...


You may drop off ShareLife donation envelopes 

at the parish office until July 31st or
