In the Divine Mercy revelations to St. Faustina, Our Lord made powerful promises about praying at 3:00 o'clock, the Hour of Mercy. He also promised great graces when we pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. In this time when we very much need to rest near Our Lord's Sacred Heart, we invite you to pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy with this recording, where Father leads. If you are able to pray at 3:00 each day, please do so; however, the Chaplet is powerful at whatever time we are able to pray.

"When I see that the burden is beyond my strength, I do not consider or analyze it or probe into it, but I run like a child to the Heart of Jesus, and say only one thing to Him: 'You can do all things.' And then I keep silent, because I know that Jesus Himself will intervene in the matter, and as for me, instead of tormenting myself, I use that time to love Him."--St. Faustina

Jesus, I trust in You.

An Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
From The Desk of Father Shawn...

6:15 PM Latin Mass
The Parish Council has requested a Latin Mass here at St. Patrick Church. On March 5th, we will be celebrating a Low Mass. This is possibly the first Latin Mass celebrated at St. Patrick since the 1960's! A couple Q&A's:

Will you know what's going on? Yes! The Latin Mass follows the same basic structure as the English Mass (Greeting, Penitential, Opening Prayer, Readings, (opt. homily), preparation of the altar, Eucharistic Prayer, Communion, and the Closing Prayer). There are additional prayers at the beginning (Prayers at the Foot of the Altar) and at the End (an extra Gospel reading and the Leonine Prayers).

What about the Latin? There will be books available with side-by-side Latin and English. You can read along in English if you so choose. The readings will be in Latin and then in English.

Isn't Latin moving us backwards? No - Latin Masses across the country are filled with young people and families. The younger generation craves the tradition and beauty of the Latin Mass. a secular world, the Latin Mass fills a void in peoples' hearts. Latin Masses are growing quickly.

Why would someone want to go to a Latin Mass? To experience the Mass that was passed on by our ancestors. This is the Mass that most of our favorite saints experienced. Connect to our Catholic heritage!

The Low Mass allows for a different type of prayer. There is more silence and time to reflect on the sacrifice of the Mass. Many people love the silence instantly, while others appreciate it more and more as they go to the Latin Mass more often.

Don't miss this opportunity! There will be some instructions at 6:10 PM with Mass starting at 6:15.
See Mass Schedule.

Saturday 3:00-3:30 PM on 3/7, 3/14, 3/21, 3/28, & 4/4.

Brown Scapular Enrollment
After 10:00 A.M. Mass. There will be an opportunity for enrollment in the Brown Scapular on Sunday, July 14, after the 10:00 Mass at St. Pat's. Anyone who has not previously been enrolled in the Brown Scapular is highly encouraged to take part.

This very powerful devotion to Our Lady has the potential to obtain great graces for each one of us. Last year, over 75 parishioners between both parishes were enrolled. Each step we take toward Mary is a step we take toward her Son. Take advantage of this chance to draw nearer to Jesus through the intercession of His Mother and ours!

"Abandon yourself into the hands of Mary. She will take care of you."--Padre Pio

Visit for frequently asked questions about wearing the brown scapular and for additional brown scapular information.
