Our directors have been approached by many parents asking for clarification or information regarding our faith. Their children are asking questions and they are realizing answering them is not entirely easy. They’ve asked for pamphlets or other materials for them to read or review to have them reconnect with their faith so they can easily explain some things to their children.
We are happy to announce Fr. Regan is holding an
Evening of Prayer & Conversation on
Sunday, March 23 at 7PM and
Wednesday, March 26 at 7:30PM -
you may choose to come to either one!
No matter how active you are in the St. Patrick’s Family, this is an evening to bring any question you have in regard to the faith, morality or the Church…All are welcome..The purpose is to light the fire again, so that as we find Him, we find ourselves.
He does not conquer our suffering by providing a band-aid to life, but rather conquers it by entering deeply into our experiences in a transformative way..Through Him, with Him and in Him there is no part of human joys, suffering, laughter and tears that has not already been touched by Him. Our invitation is to open our eyes and ears and see he has been waiting to hold, embrace and walk with us.
For details or questions please email: Fr. Dave Regan at email@example.com
Due to the treacherous road conditions, we have cancelled classes for this afternoon. Please stay safe and dry. Hopefully, we will see you next week.
Continue to check back here and at News12 for information on closings.
Our office hours are closed today as well. If you have any questions or concerns you may leave a message on our phone and we will get back to you tomorrow.
