Dear Parishioners,
Many updated and new pictures of relatives who are currently serving on active duty or reservists in our military have come in, but there is still room for more! Click here for instructions on photo submittals, and to review the list of Service Members who formerly were on the board. Family members are asked to see Father Mark to pick up those photo(s).

(Note: There may be more than one donor for the same Appointment. For example, the Sanctuary Lamp will need year-round candle refills. Appointments made of wood will need upkeep and cleaning. Multiple donors for the same Appointment will greatly benefit our parish!)
Eucharistic Adoration 

Eucharistic Adoration in the St. Patrick Chapel — located in our new administrative building, The McGivney Center — is scheduled to begin Monday, October 24th at 9:30 am. Adoration hours will initially be between 9:30 am and 2:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Adorers are invited to sign up, beginning the weekend of September 10th using the signup sheets available in the Gathering Space. Please also take an instruction sheet from the notebook at that time.

Family-Centered Faith Formation 

Sessions for our children and their parents/guardians/grandparents in our parish will begin again on Sunday, October 2, 2022 at 9 am. The new time for Children’s Faith Formation is 9:00 to 10:15 am.

Breakout sessions are for both adults and children in grades pre-K through 8th grades. High school students are welcome to attend the adult session or work as volunteers assisting the Catechists in the younger grades. The children will meet in Brendan Hall at 9:00 am and then proceed to their assigned classrooms. The adults will attend the sessions in the church library at the same time. The sessions end at 10:15 am.

We look forward to a new school year! Any questions, please contact Diane and Tom Nagle 910-287-6189. 
St. Brendan Columbarium

The Saint Brendan Columbarium is a sacred space, a prayerful place of reverence, and a place to remember and honor the devout. Catholic cemetery grounds are consecrated. These sacred grounds are an extension of the Catholic Church. We have begun building our new phase. If you would like to purchase a Columbarium niche please call Rusty in the office at 910-754-8544 ext. 6. There are 24 in-ground niches.

Please remember there should not be decorations on the stones, i.e., stickers, rosaries, flowers (real or artificial), or any kind of tape as the glue may ruin the stone. Also no statues should be placed inside the columbarium. These guidelines are so the entire Columbarium will look neat, clean, and uniform.
