Our Mission


Through the grace of God, we, the members of Saint Patrick’s Parish, accept the task of proclaiming the Gospel, seeking the Kingdom of God, and building our community on the foundation of Jesus Christ.


We are a dynamic community of believers in Jesus Christ who celebrate our Catholic faith in active worship, live out our faith in our daily lives and in service to those in need.  Our parish enables all its members to grow in their relationship with Jesus and with one another. 



Currently we celebrate a 5 p.m. Saturday Mass and 10:30 a.m. Sunday Mass.  Attendance is limited.



Weddings are scheduled on Saturdays for 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and

7 p.m.

Joining the Church

On Wednesday evenings, our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) group meets.  RCIA is for those interested in becoming Catholic or receiving the Sacraments of Initiation, and includes adults, college students, and children who have reached the age of reason. This programs run from mid September to May, but the period of inquiry can begin at any time.
