Feb. 23, 2014 A Letter from the Pastor

Dear People of St. Patrick,

Today we should feel good about our prayerful and loving gift to God and our helping to spread the Gospel in the Diocese of Oakland. Our gift to the Bishop’s Appeal today is a real sign that as Catholics, we understand that each of us belongs to the Universal Church [Catholic = Universal] and we are  responsible for leading others to Jesus Christ and to set the world on fire for Christ. If you have not prepared your gift, please do so this week. Each one of us needs to be able to say, I have done my bestand should be happy about our gift. As your Pastor, I want to thank you for your patience with me last week as I explained to you the need for the Bishop’s Appeal. Let us all continue to pray for every parish in the Diocese of Oakland to reach their goal and feel good about their parish.

The three readings from Scripture this week reminds all people of the world to love God and to show that love to one another. This teaching is meant for every human being on the face of the earth. Now, the Christian, [one who follows Jesus Christ] must take this knowledge and hear the other part of what Jesus says about love your neighbor, love your enemy and pray for them.

It is not easy to forgive when we are hurt, mistreated and disrespected by others. Remember, Jesus knows how it feels. They did it to him, yet, He gave his life for those who persecuted him on earth. Jesus does not ask us to do something He did not do. “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”

How do we get to heaven? Keep the Ten Commandments and follow the directive to love God and our neighbors.


God Bless,

Fr. Larry Young, Pastor


Helping our Brothers and Sisters in the Philippines

St. Patrick Church, Rodeo-Hercules and Diocese of Oakland respond to the Disaster in the Philippines.

Super Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines on November 8th striking Guiuan, Eastern Samar Island, with wind speeds of 195 mph, making it the strongest tropical cyclone on record to have made landfall anywhere in the world. Thousands have died and an estimated 9.5 million people are suffering from destruction on par with that seen after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The needs are immense – shelter, food, water, sanitation, and medicine.

You Can Help. There will be a special second collection for Philippine relief in this weekend, November 16-17 at all the masses.

Please make checks payable to St. Patrick Church. All donations will be sent to the Catholic Relief Services (CRS). For more information, contact the Parish Office 510-799-4406 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The Bishop wrote, “I recall a Mission poster that read: ‘Christ has no hands, no feet, no ears, but yours.’ Will you be the hands, feet, and ears of Christ to our brothers and sisters enduring such great devastation and suffering? I am confident they can depend on your generosity.” Read the full text of the letter here.
