Pastor’s Perspective

From June 16

Back in September of 2018, I thought to myself: “Here we go again! 10 more months of active parish life!!” And now, here we are about to cruise into 2 months of parish summer life. Love it! As we begin to set the internal gear of life’s activities for ourselves and our families into summer mode, I just want to take the time to thank all of our Ministry Leaders along with each and every one of you that has contributed to the blessings we are currently experiencing at

St. Patrick’s when it comes to an incredible amount of growth in God’s people joining us on the weekend in order to share in an experience of worship where the Holy Spirit is ever so active.

Please mark your calendars for this coming Tuesday, June 18 at 7:00 PM — right here at St. Patrick’s, there will be a beautiful experience of traditional sacred praise music being offered up that will lift our souls in Joy and Wonder. We will be accepting Thanksgiving donations for our St. Vincent de Paul Ministry as a way to show our appreciation. This special evening will allow us to hear what our New Organ is capable of while building community and experiencing fellowship. 

Bishop McGrattan will also be joining us for a Special Mass in honour of St. Josemaria Escriva on Tuesday, June 25 at 7:30 PM — please reserve the date and know that all are welcome.

LATEST ELEVATOR UPDATE: I have just been informed by Mr. Dave Bartle from Lawson Projects that 4 elevator companies have now received the plans for our elevator retrofit with the date closing for bids on June 27, 2019. We will keep you posted as we finally begin to get some traction towards being offered a viable solution aimed at solving our current elevator situation. I apologize for our ongoing limitations due to the broken elevator — please know that we and the Diocese are doing what we can to get things back to normal ASAP.

Wishing you all a blessed restful time with families and friends. Please be assured of my daily prayers as we journey throughout our summer months.


In Christ,
Fr. Jerome
