Pastor's Welcome

Father Robert Dziedziak, Pastor of the Church of Saint Patrick
Thank you for visiting! It is my pleasure to introduce you to our welcoming and enthusiastic St. Patrick Parish family. As Pastor, I have been truly blessed to witness the tremendous growth and progress made in the life of our Parish. Now, we are at the important mile-stone mark in the history of St. Patrick's. Our “Debt Free in Three” campaign is a great success. In months to come, we’ll be launching new ministries and programs to serve and foster our lives and we would love you to join us!

Recently, the Parish embraced a new mission statement, “Love God, Love our Neighbors, Make Disciples,” built around the following set of values… values that we believe reflect our faith and guide our thinking, our way of living, our deeds and our way of communicating with each other and with everyone we serve.

Pope Francis released his much anticipated

Encyclical "Laudato Si" on the Care of Our Common Home
Pope Francis Encyclical

Referring to the earth as "our common home," the Holy Father expressed his desire to address "every person living on this planet" about the importance of environmental concerns. One of the best ways to understand this important document is to read it and the supporting information. To help people get a firm grasp on Pope Francis' teaching, the USCCB's Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development has developed numerous resources for taking action and discussion guides.
