Suspension of Masses
Called together by God to experience Jesus and His word, in the sacraments of the Church and in each other, we are committed to love God and to embrace all God's people as witnesses of God's mercy.
Those who receive envelopes for weekly giving should receive new ones in the mail before the end of the first week in May.
Thank you very much to all those who have been sending in your offerings. It has been most helpful in maintaining the parish facilities during this difficult time for us all. Please send in or drop off your offerings if you are able. Keep in mind St. Patrick has on-line giving available. If you have not been able to send in a gift due to health and/or economic hardships during the pandemic, please keep your parish in your prayers. We are certainly praying for all of you. We are here for you.

To the parishioners of the St. John Paul II Community;
While we are spending extra time at home these days, please remember your church buildings are open every day. Jesus waits for you as we wait to be allowed back to Holy Mass and the gift of the Eucharist. The Church is praying around the world for all of us. We also should not let these Lenten days go by without using our time well. Prayer is essential to the well being of our souls. While in a time of making daily Spiritual Communions, please work at deepening your Lenten experience. Use the internet well for your spiritual needs. Look up the daily Mass readings and use them as time for reflection at home or at church. Look up a story of a different Saint or two each week and learn something about their faith and reasons for being Disciples of Christ. Come walk the Stations of the Cross at church for your own intentions. This is a wonderful time for each one of us to use the time we’ve unexpectedly been given to deepen our Lenten experience and spiritually offer our daily sacrifices for those directly dealing with or suffering with Covid – 19. Are we expressing our gratitude for being healthy through this pandemic? Thank God for your blessings and bring to him your greatest concerns, struggles and frustrations. He is here for you! Are you going to Him? You remain in my prayers.
Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Greg, Pastor
