Hello everybody!

Grace and peace to you! As a beacon of Christ's love, the Catholic Community of St. Patrick welcomes you. We are a field hospital for sinners, where Jesus Christ, the Great Physician, transforms lives with His love. You will experience a great vitality in our community as we seek, in thousands of different ways, to live out the greatest commandments: to love God and our neighbor.

From our founding, when a small group first gathered for the celebration of Mass on June 22, 1988, in the Eastwood Community Center, worship has been the heart of our community that orients us to the mission of Christ and His Church. Fed at the table of God's Word and of the Eucharist, we are sent forth to serve others with all of our strength. God calls us beyond ourselves and has blessed our community with growth, now with nearly 1400 families of all shapes and sizes.

If you are looking for a place to call home, ask God if He is calling you to use your gifts as a member of our family. You will become part of a community called by God to grow in His love, to live life with a purpose and to commit ourselves to bring His love into the world.
We hope you will join us. We look forward to saying Welcome Home!

In Christ's Peace,
Fr. Jeff
