What is Liturgy?

The word Liturgy comes from the Greek, which means the people’s work. It was a public work done for the service of others. In ancient Greek it originally meant the cooperation of all citizens to make society work. The Catholic Church defines Liturgy as the public worship for the service of others. Liturgy is public prayer and ritual, it is communal in nature. There is nothing private about the Mass.

As Christians, we are called to be Christ to others. We are called to be of service, and this attitude is required of us at Liturgy. This responsibility to be of service to others comes from our Baptism and it is at the heart of being Catholic. Yet, many times you will hear people say “I don’t get anything out of mass.” If one were to search the scriptures and the sacred tradition of the Catholic Church this attitude is never taught by Jesus or by the Catholic Church. It is in giving the Christ that is found within us at Liturgy to others; that we receive.

Participation in Liturgy

Visitors to St. Patrick always comment that we have life-giving and vibrant Masses and they wish they could take St. Patrick home with them! It is the ultimate compliment that someone can pay to our parish. Our uplifting Liturgies come from an understanding that all members of our Catholic Community take their role as a member of the assembly seriously and each of us has a spiritual responsibility to bring others to Jesus Christ at Mass.

St. Patrick has hundreds upon hundreds of parishioners involved in liturgy from the altar servers, to lectors, Eucharistic ministers, hospitality ministers, sacristans, art and environment members, and music ministers they are at Mass every Sunday simply seeking to bring others to Christ through the Word of God and Eucharist.

Weekend Masses

Weekend Liturgies are in the main sanctuary. Our brothers and sisters from different Faith traditions are welcome to join us for prayer and please feel free to ask our Hospitality Ministers for any direction you may need.

Daily Masses

Daily mass is held in our smaller chapel adjacent to the main church. Our Daily Mass Chapel entrance is located on the Southwestern side of our Worship Center. It seats 180+ people and is used for our Weekday masses, and for smaller funerals, weddings and other sacramental rites. The space is also used for classes and special gatherings. Holy Days masses are listed in the bulletin.
