Commitment Renewal

Renew Today

Many of you have shared with me your stories of how you discovered St. Patrick Parish, and how this has become your spiritual home. A place worth traveling the extra mile(s) from over 80 ZIP codes to encounter Christ: in the Mass, the Supper of the Lamb, celebrated with reverent beauty; in the gift of Divine Mercy offered daily in confession; in the preaching and teaching of the truths of our Faith; in the solid formation and positive environment you find in our CCD and youth ministry programs; and in the supportive family of kindred spirits you find in your fellow parishioners and in the Dominican friars and sisters.

Not only is St. Patrick your spiritual home—it is also a place where you are formed as disciples to bring Christ to a world hungry for the truth given in love. Parents find the support they need to hand on the art of Catholic living to their children. Young people come to know, love, and live their Catholic faith and prepare for their future vocations. Parishioners bear witness to the God-given dignity of human life, marriage, and family. Small groups meet in fellowship to deepen their knowledge of the faith. Volunteers bring Christ to the homebound, feed the homeless, and help moms in crisis pregnancies. We are just beginning a partnership with Evangelical Catholic to train parishioners in the heart and habits of missionary discipleship so that they can more effectively share our Catholic faith with others.

As your pastor, I am inviting you to go the extra mile financially. In preparation for Commitment Sunday on the weekend of September 17-18, please review this brochure and prayerfully consider making an increased commitment to your regular offering in the Sunday collection. As you can see in our financial report, our budget is already rather lean, and our income just covers our expenses.

The goal of Commitment Sunday is to provide St. Patrick’s the solid financial foundation we need to bring Christ to a world hungry for the truth given in love--the entire year round.

We are counting on you! Especially in today’s climate, I thank you for your generosity already so clearly shown and your commitment to the St. Patrick’s that you love so much.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Stephen Alcott, O.P.
