From Our Pastor:

Peace! We have a wonderful reason for some pride and an opportunity to share in one of our young parishioner’s new ministry, Brandon Tyrrell, of St. Stephen’s Parish in Marathon, has discerned to spend the next year with a missionary group, HARD AS NAILS, a group dedicated to assisting the needy and based on Christian principles, to live as Christ has called us to, selflessly and for others.

St Stephen’s has already donated a significant amount of money for his support and we need to contribute also, in solidarity. The new ministry relies on communities that their youth come from, to support them in some way for the time they are with them.

Towards this end, we will have a 2nd Collection next weekend here at St. Patrick’s. We will also have an opportunity to donate at our Parish Picnic on September 12th.

It is through support like this that we can encourage the spirituality and goodness of our youth and create opportunities for vocations to religious life and priesthood to grow.

Please join in supporting Brandon and his ministry with HARD AS NAILS. May God bless you and may Mary keep you always in His love! PS. Check out HARD AS NAILS MINISTRY on the internet.
