What we Believe
We are followers of Christ, and we believe that each of us have been called and gifted to transform the world through giving, praying, and serving. Our motto is “Christian Disciples in Mission,” and we believe in living out the gospel beyond Sunday. We believe in five key pillars of focus for everything that we do: liturgy, hospitality, stewardship, social justice, and formation.
When we Celebrate Liturgy
Liturgy is a mass, a baptism, or a funeral. A moment of silence, of music, and prayer. We treat these moments as celebrations, and we believe they have power in our lives. We celebrate the mass each day (at least one!) at the parish and other sacraments are celebrated regularly.
The Importance of Ministry
Ministry simply means sharing in the ability to love, serve, and heal with Christ. As Jesus calls us to constantly go beyond ourselves and serve others, so too must we commit to our parish, community, and world through ministry. Here at St. Patrick we have over 130 ministry opportunities.
Education and Learning the Faith
We believe that searching, learning, and discussing the faith is an important part of the disciple of Christ. Through programs designed for children, teenagers, and adults of all ages, the ministers and community of St. Patrick is committed to always growing closer to God.
