Book Of Remembrance

There is a Book of Remembrance near the sanctuary at Historic St. Patrick during the month of November, and all are invited to share their deceased loved ones’ names for us to pray for all of them. Please include all of your beloved deceased, whether recently passed or deceased long ago. You’re welcome to share memories or prayers. And we’ll pray a special series of prayers at each Mass in both parishes during the month of November for our deceased loved ones. You can add information to the Book of Remembrance before or after each Mass or during the weekdays when our churches are open for prayer and meditation.

Prayers for Priests, Seminarians and Vocations

Mark your calendar for December 9, 2018.  That is the next date for our Prayers for Priests.  At 3 p.m. Prayers for Priests will be offered.  We will say a Rosary and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and a collection of specific prayers for priests and vocations.  During this season of Advent let us prepare for the coming of Jesus by praying for His priests and ask Him to give us more priestly vocations for our diocese.  At this time when we think of gifts, let us thank the Lord for the gift of His priests.
