The heart of a parish is the Eucharist, but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an inspiring parish life. Saint Patrick Catholic Church offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments.
The parish community has a special role in promoting participation in the life, mission, and work of the faith community.
“The parish is where the Church lives. Parishes are communities of faith, of action, and of hope. They are where the Gospel is proclaimed and celebrated, where believers are formed and sent to renew the earth.
Parishes are the home of the Christian community; they are the heart of our Church. Parishes are the place where God’s people meet Jesus in word and sacrament and come in touch with the source of the Church’s life.”
