World Mission Sunday
Thank you very much for your generous support of World Mission Sunday last week. This support is a blessing for the Priests, Sisters, Brothers and Lay Catechists who depend on this help through the Propagation of the Faith. Please continue to pray for all who serve in mission countries that they may remain steadfast in their vocation to bring Christ’s message of love to those they serve – the world’s most vulnerable.

“Out of the Cold” begins soon!
“Out of the Cold” will begin Sunday Nov 16th and operate every Sunday evening until March 2015. Out of the Cold is an opportunity for St. Patrick’s community to welcome our brothers and sisters who call the streets their home for Sunday dinner, a warm place to share in fellowship, and for some, a warm place to sleep. We typically welcome up to 350 people for dinner and house 80 people for overnight. Support for our program is entirely through the generosity of donors that help to make our program one of welcome and compassion. One evening costs $1500.
Financial contributions to the program can be made to “St. Patrick’s Church – Out of the Cold Program.” You can use the envelopes provided at the back of the Church.
