      Our Mission

      St. Patrick's is a community united by God through the Gospels, the teachings of the Catholic Church and the pursuit of common goals. Our members offer their unique gifts to God and each other. With these gifts we joyfully proclaim the Word of God, proudly celebrate the sacraments and promote living in solidarity and justice, in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church and faithful to the Magisterium.

      Our Vision

      In God we trust boldly, in the footsteps of Jesus we walk humbly and by the light of the Holy Spirit we love tenderly as we become true Christians who courageously face adversity as St. Patrick has done setting for us a perfect example.

      Heartbeats from your new Parish Priest Fr Eduardo

      Pope Francis has instituted the 3rd Sunday of the Year as Sunday of the Word of God. He issued such on the 30 September 2019 in his Apostolic Letter “Aperuit Illis.” With this letter, he is giving us a clear perspective of the importance of the Word of God in our Christian faith. Yes indeed, “Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life. What more can we ask God other than feeding us with His words which are life-giving and spirit-filled. In the midst of pandemic we can only hold on the Word of God. There is NO ONE and NOTHING and NOWHERE to hold on to except in the Word of God. And there are many sources of inspirations we can get from the Word of God. There are innumerable themes or topics that we can think of when we read and meditate on the Word of God. I, personally, has drawn heaps of inspiration and strength whenever I read the daily Scripture and meditate on it. There are many resources available around, but most handy is the Holy Bible in our homes, or cars, or office, that is, if we ever take hold of it, open it and read it. There is also the Bible Diary every year (but our copies have gone like wildfire).

       

      This pandemic will be here for some time, but it will be over in due time. The worst may happen before it will become better. Let us work together to make our environment a dwelling place not for the virus but for peace and safety and happiness for everyone, and for our parish to be more prayerful, more participatory, more  welcoming, more vibrant, more invitational. Let us read the Word of God, regularly, that is, daily, for strength and inspiration. Amen!

      II. THE PRECEPTS OF THE CHURCH

      2041 The precepts of the Church are set in the context of a moral life bound to and nourished by liturgical life. The obligatory character of these positive laws decreed by the pastoral authorities is meant to guarantee to the faithful the very necessary minimum in the spirit of prayer and moral effort, in the growth in love of God and neighbor:

      2042 The first precept ("You shall attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation and rest from servile labor") requires the faithful to sanctify the day commemorating the Resurrection of the Lord as well as the principal liturgical feasts honoring the mysteries of the Lord, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the saints; in the first place, by participating in the Eucharistic celebration, in which the Christian community is gathered, and by resting from those works and activities which could impede such a sanctification of these days.82

      The second precept ("You shall confess your sins at least once a year") ensures preparation for the Eucharist by the reception of the sacrament of reconciliation, which continues Baptism's work of conversion and forgiveness.83

      The third precept ("You shall receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least during the Easter season") guarantees as a minimum the reception of the Lord's Body and Blood in connection with the Paschal feasts, the origin and center of the Christian liturgy.84

      2043 The fourth precept ("You shall observe the days of fasting and abstinence established by the Church") ensures the times of ascesis and penance which prepare us for the liturgical feasts and help us acquire mastery over our instincts and freedom of heart.85

      The fifth precept ("You shall help to provide for the needs of the Church") means that the faithful are obliged to assist with the material needs of the Church, each according to his own ability.86

      The faithful also have the duty of providing for the material needs of the Church, each according to his own abilities.87
