Livestreaming the Mass
We livestream Mass at 9 AM on Sundays from Saint Patrick Church. In addition, we will be livestreaming the 5 PM Confirmation Mass on Saturday, August 29 and the 9 AM All School Mass on Friday, September 4!

Subscribing to our YouTube Channel is not necessary to watch the Mass, however it allows you to set reminders to tune in and provides us with the option of livestreaming from a mobile device when we reach 1000 subscribers. We are so close! Check-in on Facebook and make your weekly offertory gift via Online Giving. [Keep scrolling to the bottom to find your parish link.]
The dispensation for Mass is still in effect.

Action Alert 
Catholic schools have been affected by COVID-19, and they need your help. Urge our U.S. Senators to support the Alexander-Scott “School Choice Now Act.” This act will help our Catholic schools by providing emergency funding for scholarship-granting organizations and provide permanent dollar-for-dollar tax credits for contributions to scholarship granting organizations. This act may help the Fulcrum Foundation and other organizations supporting Catholic education. Take action now!
