HAPPY EASTER TO ALL OF OUR ST. PAT'S FAMILIES

Easter is not only the greatest Christian feast; Easter Sunday symbolizes the fulfillment of our faith as Christians.


On Holy Thursday, we reenact the Lord's Last Supper, which He shared with His apostles on the night He was betrayed and arrested.


On Good Friday, the day of the crucifixion and death of our Lord, we have the veneration of the Cross. A service is held at three o'clock in the afternoon (the hour He is believed to have died) and another later in the evening.


Holy Saturday is a vigil. We keep watch for the expectant rising of Our Savior.


Those who engage themselves wholeheartedly in living the entire Easter cycle discover that it can change them forever.

Come join us for an Easter Celebration!

Date: Friday, April 26

Time: 2:00pm

Where: Gym
