Parish Vision Statement
We members of the St. Patrick Catholic Community, inspired with the fire and zeal of the Holy Spirit, seek to live into our Catholic identity more fully through engaging and energizing ministry. Through a vibrant Sunday experience, St. Patrick will become a place of welcome and hospitality for all. We will foster and empower both youth and adults toward greater love and friendship with Christ, and both forming and being formed as disciples of Christ, will witness to God’s action in our thriving parish.

(1) Evangelization: St. Patrick will engage parishioners and visitors with lively Sunday liturgies.
(2) Hospitality: St. Patrick will foster a sense of welcome and hospitality to parishioners and visitors.
(3) Young Catholics: St. Patrick will empower the youth of the parish in active roles of discipleship and service.

Our 7th and 8th Grade classes recently traveled to Washington D.C for the 49th Annual March for Life. It was quite an impactful trip for them. Check out their thoughts about the experience.
“As you know Katharina will be attending Marquette in the fall. She set her sights on their University Program. After the first exam was administered in class she went back to take the exam a second time to qualify. Not only was she accepted into the program but she knocked it out of the park and placed in the highest level of honors classes available across all subjects, including math where she will be taking Honors Algebra II. (Incidentally , I believe every student from St. Pat’s who is attending Marquette in the fall was accepted into the University Program.)
I tell anyone who will listen that the best decision I ever made for my girls was to transfer them to St. Pat’s four (4) years ago.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued tutelage, guidance and patience!
She could not have done it without you!”
