Dear Parishioners,

The beautiful Christmas Season has come again and there are few places that celebrate it as well as we do here at St. Patrick!

This year, as always, we have tried to put together a convenient Mass schedule so as to make it possible for you and your family to worship together.

Listed below is are our Mass schedules for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day –  January 1st is the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God (a holy day of obligation).

On behalf of all the entire parish Clergy and Staff, I offer you our prayers that Christmas finds you and your loved ones filled with a spirit of joy and hope.

May the Christ Child and His Blessed Mother be with you!

Reverend Monsignor Thomas More Coogan
Pastor

* Holy Days of Obligation for Catholics carry the same obligation for Mass attendance as Sundays. This means failure to attend Mass on a Holy Day of Obligation constitutes a sin, and reception of the Sacrament of Reconciliation would be required before approaching communion for a Catholic who has failed in this obligation.
