World Catholic Education Week

Thank you for your continued prayers and support of St. Patrick Catholic School! We truly are blessed to have the opportunity to partake in a rich, faith-filled education.


Our focus for the Friday of Catholic education week is clergy and our school board trustee. We are blessed to have Father Joby and Father Mark as well as Trustee Ron Baier within our faith community. Looking forward to seeing them at Mass soon in person!

"It Will Be Okay" Trusting God through fear and change.

Thank you to Mrs. Dueck for sharing this story for our students! A great story for children reassuring that God is always with them as they overcome new or a change in circumstances.

It Will Be Okay

Unfortunately we can't run together as a team, but I would encourage all past team members and anyone else to join the virtual AMA Run Club. This is a great opportunity for families to go out together and be active! Heading out for a run before you start your school work for the day or after lunch would provide a great energy boost for everyone! These unique times have provided many of us with the flexibility to get outside and move during the day, let's take advantage of it!


By registering for the club participants will receive:

  • Weekly emails (to parents) with activities and challenges you can complete at home
  • A 10 week running/walking program that builds up to a 2 or 5 km fun run!
  • Certificate of completion at the end of June and finisher prizes for every participant
  • An entry to win 1 of many Garmin Activity Trackers drawn at the end of June

Run Happy,

Mr. Ernst
