An Update on Fr. Eric:
Please continue to keep our Pastor, Fr. Eric, in your prayers.
On Monday, February 11, he underwent bypass surgery. The surgery went well and he is recovering. He is in good spirits, and looking forward to getting back to St. Patrick and the football field.
Dear Heavenly Father, restore to full health, mind, and body all those in need. Amen.
Please note: Fr. Eric will not be checking email or returning phone calls while he recovers. If you need anything immediately, contact the front office, otherwise, Fr. Eric looks forward to hearing from everyone when he returns. We ask that there be no visitors or flowers. Cards can be sent to the church. Thank you for your respect and understanding as he recovers.
Extended Love: Migration and the Church
Fr. Eric wishes to share with everyone this resource guide. “Extended Love: Migration and the Church” is a quick reference resource to help everyone reflect on Church teachings, scripture, and quotes regarding the issue of migration and how the Church is called to respond.

One of the most difficult schedules in 5A, 18 players lost during the season, starting 0-3, the Sunnyslope Vikings endured adversity and forged a 5-2 mark to make the playoffs. The never say die Vikings!
The teachings of Jesus can confuse us as we try to make sense of what he asks and how it fits into our way of thinking. It takes time to reflect on what he is asking. This week’s Gospel, and the Beatitudes (our theme for the year) really turn our world upside down, but does not Jesus do that already?
Fr. Eric breaks this open during his homily this weekend and invites Adam Stein, our Coordinator of Communications, to share more about our theme and a very special event that is happening next week.
Here is the video that was shown at all the Masses this weekend:
