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 April 21st and ends on June 23rd. We are offering both a morning and evening Alpha, depending on your schedule.
- Morning Alpha @ 9:00 am-10:30 am
- Evening Alpha @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Any questions? Email Sunghee Hwang, Alpha Coordinator at [email protected].

THE CHURCH WANTS TO LISTEN.
COME JOIN THE CONVERSATION.
Pope Francis has launched a Synod in Rome with the theme “For a synodal Church: communion, participation, mission.” This Synod is an opportunity for Catholics to dialogue and discern how the Holy Spirit is inviting us to journey together as a Church. This Synod has implications not only on the universal Church but also on the local Church. Many of the recommendations from the faithful in previous Synods have been implemented in our local diocese.
St. Patrick’s will be participating in this Synod by having “conversation circles” among the Small Groups that are already actively meeting. If you would like to participate in the Synod in this way, please email [email protected]. Otherwise, we encourage you to participate in this Synod through the link below that says, “Individual Submissions”.
Aid for the People of Ukraine
The Catholic Near East Welfare Association

The Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA) is a papal agency for humanitarian and pastoral support that has been a lifeline for the poor throughout the Middle East, Northeast Africa, India and Eastern Europe for 90 years. CNEWA works in places where poverty, war, and displacement shatter innocent lives. CNEWA is known for its financial transparency and operational efficiency.
Please be generous and continue to pray for peace.
Please prayerfully consider financially supporting your parish.
