Small Groups Re-Launching Fall 2022

A message from Hannah Powell, a new staff member here at St. Patrick’s. 

We are re-launching small groups! Starting September, we will be re-launching our small group faith studies. Small groups are the heart of our parish and the source of joy in the lives of so many human beings. The purpose of our small groups is to invite you into an intentional space that connects you with others in similar circumstances, both spiritually and ordinarily.

If you have led, been a part of or want to be lead/be apart of a small group, please come into Holy Grounds anytime to see Hannah. Or, you can click the button below that will take you to a small group sign up.

Depending on your response to the poll below, Hannah will likely reach out to you.

What is Alpha?

Alpha at St.Patrick’s is the place to explore the Christian faith with others. Each session has time for connection, a talk, and space to discuss and ask questions plus delicious food to share! It is designed for people without a church background or who wouldn’t call themselves a Christian. It’s an opportunity to invite your friends to hear the Gospel and explore a relationship with Jesus. You can even attend with them! 

Alpha begins September 22nd!

Morning Alpha @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

Evening Alpha @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Come and see and encounter the love of God.

Celebrate the Sacraments

Funeral for David Indyk will be on Friday, September 9th 2022 at 11:30am.

Father Matthew and the Parish Staff  would like to offer our condolences to Peter Indyk, Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus, and his loved ones. Peter’s brother, David passed away. Please keep them and David’s soul in your prayers.

On July 30, 2022 Wynmae & Peter Humski became Sacramentally married and followed the celebration with the Baptism of their Baby girl.

Congratulations to the Humski Family!

Let’s join in prayer and thanksgiving to God for the many blessings he has placed in their lives.

Bookstore Feature

Into His Likeness: Be Transformed as a Disciple of Christ

In the ancient disciple-rabbi relationship, the disciple would follow the rabbi so closely that he would be covered in the dust kicked up from his rabbi’s feet. Thousands of years later, though we walk on roads of pavement and not dust, we are still called to be disciples—to follow our Rabbi, Jesus Christ, so closely that we are covered with his life, changed, and made new.

Into His Likeness provides an approachable but in-depth exploration of how to live as a disciple and experience the transformation Jesus wants to work in our lives. We might desire to live more like Christ, but we know we fall short. This book simply helps us follow those initial promptings of the Holy Spirit, so that we may more intentionally encounter Jesus anew each day and be more disposed to his grace changing us ever more into his likeness.

This week’s feature is FREE!

Come to the bookstore today to pick up a copy.
