We are peacemakers for our community.

We proclaim the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ to the world and to each other. We teach our Catholic faith to our children and to all who wish to enter and become one with our faith community. We reach out to the unchurched and welcome them to become one with us in Christ.

We show we are Christians by our actions. We accept the responsibility to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, care for the sick, and reach out to those neglected, deprived, disabled, rejected and oppressed. We work for societal and governmental change to assist those in need.

Through the grace of God, we, the members of Saint Patrick’s Parish, accept the task of proclaiming the Gospel, seeking the Kingdom of God, and building our community on the foundation of Jesus Christ.

We are a dynamic community of believers in Jesus Christ who celebrate our Catholic faith in active worship, live out our faith in our daily lives and in service to those in need. Our parish enables all its members to grow in their relationship with Jesus and with one another. 

We are a Christian people of all ages from diverse backgrounds and many different geographical locations. We recognize the gift of the young adults brought to us by the colleges and universities in our area and commit to supporting their growth and participation in our community of faith.
