      Our Mission

      St. Patrick's is a community united by God through the Gospels, the teachings of the Catholic Church and the pursuit of the greater good. Our members offer their unique gifts to God and each other. With these gifts we joyfully proclaim the Word of God, proudly celebrate the sacraments and promote living in solidarity and justice, in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church and faithfulness to the Magisterium.

      Our Vision

      In God we trust boldly, in the footsteps of Jesus we walk humbly and by the light of the Holy Spirit we love tenderly as we become true Christians who courageously face adversity as St. Patrick has done setting for us a perfect example.

      Heartbeats from your new Parish Priest  Fr Eduardo

      This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension which celebrates the end of Jesus' work on earth - Jesus with us. This feast also invites us to be joyful followers of Christ for He is always with us as He promised - I am with you always, even to the end of ages. We are also preparing for the Feast of Pentecost. As we look forward to the coming of the Spirit. Let us be open to the Holy Spirit imparted to us by Jesus Christ our Lord, and not only the disciples.

       

      Floral Offering to Mother Mary in our church every Sunday at all Masses after Holy Communion

       

      We have started the month of May with Mary in our minds. It’s wonderful to see children and family offering flowers for Mother Mary in our church in every Mass, not only on Sundays but even on weekdays.  Please continue to do so. This is to manifest our love and honour and devotion to the Blessed Mother our spiritual mother.  I encourage parents and grandparents to bring their children to church every Sunday, and I encourage every children to bring their mum and dad and siblings to church and offer flowers and prayers to our Blessed Mother ever-virgin.

      II. THE PRECEPTS OF THE CHURCH

      2041 The precepts of the Church are set in the context of a moral life bound to and nourished by liturgical life. The obligatory character of these positive laws decreed by the pastoral authorities is meant to guarantee to the faithful the very necessary minimum in the spirit of prayer and moral effort, in the growth in love of God and neighbor:

      2042 The first precept ("You shall attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation and rest from servile labor") requires the faithful to sanctify the day commemorating the Resurrection of the Lord as well as the principal liturgical feasts honoring the mysteries of the Lord, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the saints; in the first place, by participating in the Eucharistic celebration, in which the Christian community is gathered, and by resting from those works and activities which could impede such a sanctification of these days.82

      The second precept ("You shall confess your sins at least once a year") ensures preparation for the Eucharist by the reception of the sacrament of reconciliation, which continues Baptism's work of conversion and forgiveness.83

      The third precept ("You shall receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least during the Easter season") guarantees as a minimum the reception of the Lord's Body and Blood in connection with the Paschal feasts, the origin and center of the Christian liturgy.84

      2043 The fourth precept ("You shall observe the days of fasting and abstinence established by the Church") ensures the times of ascesis and penance which prepare us for the liturgical feasts and help us acquire mastery over our instincts and freedom of heart.85

      The fifth precept ("You shall help to provide for the needs of the Church") means that the faithful are obliged to assist with the material needs of the Church, each according to his own ability.86

      The faithful also have the duty of providing for the material needs of the Church, each according to his own abilities.87
