Patrick Le’s getting ordained!

December 9th, 2022 

at 7 PM – 9 PM at Holy Rosary Cathedral

It is with great excitement that we announce the Diaconate Ordination of Patrick Le, longtime parishioner and friend to many here at St.Patrick’s Parish.

Come and join us and many others in this joyous celebration as we witness Patrick and his classmate Medard’s commitment to Jesus. This is a wonderful opportunity for all of the faithful to witness these young men further pursue their vocation to the priesthood.

St.Patrick’s Parish is organising a 56 passenger bus to take us downtown to partake in this celebration. – more details about how to reserve a seat, coming soon.

Please continue to pray for Patrick and Medard as they prepare for their ordination. Through God’s grace, may they imitate Christ, who made himself a servant for all.

Chiara Corbella Petrillo: A Witness to Joy

Chiara Petrillo was seated in a wheel chair looking lovingly toward Jesus in the tabernacle. Her husband, Enrico, found the courage to ask her a question that he had been holding back. Thinking of Jesus’s phrase, my yoke is sweet and my burden is light, he asked: “Is this yoke, this cross, really sweet, as Jesus said?”

A smile came across Chiara’s face. She turned to her husband and said in a weak voice: “Yes, Enrico, it is very sweet.”

At 28 years old, Chiara passed away, her body ravaged by cancer. The emotional, physical, and spiritual trials of this young Italian mother are not uncommon. It was her joyful and loving response to each that led one cardinal to call her a saint for our times.

Purchase your copy at the Parish Bookstore for $25.
