We are called, through our Baptism, to live in and by the Presence of Christ in Word and Sacrament. Through His call we live, gratefully, the life God has given us and proclaim the Good News through our word and deed.

On Wednesday, the Solemnity of St. Andrew, St. Patrick’s P.S. will join us for Mass.
Today’s Liturgy: Stay awake so that you may be ready. A new season begins today: Advent. So does a new liturgical year, and so does the three year cycle of readings at Sunday Mass since this is “Year A”, the year of Matthew’s Gospel. The first proclamation we hear from our Lectionary (=Book of Readings) is from the prophet Isaiah, “The vision of Isaiah, son of Amoz, concerning Judah and Jerusalem.” This vision calls for people to turn swords into ploughshares, spears into pruning hooks—destructive implements into creative tools. Advent is s a season of hope, of positive expectation. Our challenge is to bring about this hope, this peace.
RE-OPENING OUR CHURCHES 2022
We remind you NOT to attend Mass or Liturgies if you are carrying an infection or have the symptoms of Covid.
We encourage you to continue to be aware of those around about you, especially those who may be more vulnerable.
Cry Chapel: Please do not sit in the cry chapel for Mass as it is a restricted space. If a baby is crying at Mass, you might take the baby to the cry chapel to settle down, but otherwise, please sit in the main church.
