Congratulations to our newly confirmed!
A note from Deacon Al Weber
On November 5, St. Patrick Parish will have the “soft” opening of the International Exhibition of the Eucharistic Miracles of the World. This exhibition is one of the opportunities for parishioners to learn more about the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist, during our parish Eucharistic Revival. A “hard” opening will be on the 12th with coffee and cookies.
The display will be open on the following dates in November in the lower-level gym:
Sundays (5th, 12th, 19th & 26th) – 10:30 am to 3 pm.
Tuesdays (7th, 14th & 21st) – 6 pm to 8 pm.
Wednesdays (8th, 15th & 22nd) – 9:30 am to 11:15 am.
Thursdays (9th & 16th) – 6 pm to 8 pm.
The “Eucharistic Miracles of the World” includes more than three dozen museum-quality panels which document Eucharistic Miracles that have occurred across the world over the centuries and will be available to see at no cost right here at Saint Patrick.
I encourage you to visit the exhibition.
