Drinking with the Saints – Monthly Men’s Nights
Last Saturday of every month.
Today! Saturday, January 28th @ 7-8:30pm.
Announcing the official launching of our men’s ministry!
Come join some of the men at St. Patrick’s Parish as we enjoy a drink in honour of the Saints. Each month we will pick a patron, hear their story, and raise a glass. There will be light fare, unique cocktails, and good conversation. This is not a faith study, it is an opportunity for the Men in our Parish to get to know one another & join in fellowship.
“Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another”.

What is it?
WYD is a worldview encounter for all young people. This community wide encounter is centered around Jesus Christ. You can personally experience the universal Catholic church and share the hope of evangelization with those you come home to. Deepen your faith, prayer life and understanding of the sacraments with thousands of other young people.
Pope John Paul once said at a WYD, “I repeat again today what I said at Santiago de Compostela: “Young people, do not be afraid to be holy!” Fly high, be among those whose goals are worthy of sons and daughters of God. Glorify God in your lives!”
