Welcome

Welcome to St. Patrick!

We hope that you and your family are getting through these uncertain times safely and with good health. It is in times like these that our Catholic faith and prayer are needed more than ever and we are so grateful to be able to have so many ways to connect as a faith community. We are especially grateful to be able to welcome you back to in-person Mass!

Being in the presence of our Lord and participating in the Sacrament of Eucharist is such an important part of our faith and it is such a blessing to be able to offer in-person Mass again. Your safety and wellbeing are our top priority as we invite you back with heightened safety measures in place. If you are not able to come back to weekend Mass at this time because of health concerns, please consider coming to a weekday Mass, Rosary or Holy Hour, as there are more opportunities for social distancing at those times. 

We hope to see you soon!

Catholic Services Appeal

Here in our Archdiocese, each of us in invited to help support the   ongoing ministries of the Church beyond our own parish of St. Patrick. This year is no exception. Because of the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, Archbishop Vigneron moved the annual Catholic Services Appeal from last Spring to this September 2020. We have been told that the Archdiocese has cut their staff and other personnel expensed by 45%. Everyone is being asked to help deal with the serious financial difficulties of our Church of Detroit because of COVID-19.

As in the past years, we are now recommneding that every parish family consider an annual contribution of $300.00 over ten months, i.e., a down payment of $30.00 and an additional $30.00 for the remaining nine months for this year's Catholic Services Appeal. We are asking for "equal sacrifice-not necessarily an equal gift".

Any CSA contribution in excess of our CSA target-which is lower than last year-will remain in our parish for our own needs. This year, this could really help our parish, as our loss of weekly offertory income is about 22 percent. Know that you and all of our parishioners are in our prayers. May we continue to pray for and to support one another in these difficult times.

I am praying that the Lord will bless you abundantly for your personal sacrifice and generous response. May the Lord bless you for your willingness to offer your fair share in assisting in our 2020 Archdiocean CSA Appeal.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Rev. Thomas L. Meagher, Pastor

Take the Pledge for Civility

As Catholics, we are disciples of Christ and as such are called to love one another. There were no exceptions for election years and it seems that many have forgotten that to love others is far more important than any political issue. The Michigan Catholic Confrence has challenged us to bring civility back this election season and remember our compassion even in disagreement with others.

We hope you will join us in taking this pledge as well. 

I pledge civility.

To recognize the human dignity of those with whom I disagree, treat others with respect, and rise above attacks when directed at me.

I pledge clarity.

To root my political viewpoints in the Gospel and a well-formed conscience, which involves prayer, conversation, study and listening. I will stand up for my convictions and speak out when I witness language that disparages others’ dignity, while also listening and seeking to understand others’ experiences.

I pledge compassion.

To encounter others with a tone and posture which affirms that I honor the dignity of others and invites others to do the same. I will presume others’ best intentions and listen to their stories with empathy. I will strive to understand before seeking to be understood.

Add your name to the pledge by clicking here.


 

 

We are so fortunate to be able to participate in the election process to ensure that those representing our communities are advocating for the values we as Christians hold dear. You can read more about the issues and candidates in the September issue of "Focus" by clicking here

Religious Education

St. Patrick Catholic Church is committed to faith formation for all children and adults in our Catholic community. During these very unusual times, we as a Church have been challenged in so many ways. The health and well-being of our Parishioners is at the forefront of our concerns and we are praying for our community daily. 

As we embark on the new school year, the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a shift in our planning and the execution of our Religious Education programs. After much prayer, consultation and conversation with all of the concerned parties, we have made decisions for the upcoming 2020-2021 year regarding all of our Faith Formation/Religious Education programs. 

The format for our 2020-2021 religious education programs will be an at home structure  for most children this year to ensure the safety of both our religious education students and the students at St. Patrick Catholic School. Please click here for details.
