A Message from Our Pastor

September 25, 2022

Dear People of St. Patrick Parish,

Today, we think about the many men, women and children in our midst who are like Lazarus in the Gospel today. These our brothers and sisters that are in need, we should do all we can to help them and not ignore them. Jesus makes it very clear that we must not ignore them.

We are very blessed that we have the St. Vincent de Paul Society here at St. Patrick to help those in need in our Parish boundaries. This week, we celebrate the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul, who really cared for the poor. Thank you to all who help support St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Next Sunday, October 2nd, there will be the Blessing of the pets and animals in preparation for the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. All animals are welcome, if you can not bring the animal bring a picture so the animal can be blessed. Tell your family and friends about this blessing.

Starting next Sunday, every parish is required to count all the adults and children attending each Mass during the month of October. We will be asking you to be patient as we do this at each Mass. The Diocese of Oakland uses this information in planning and trying to meet the needs of our parishes.

Next Sunday will also be the annual collection for our Diocesan Catholic newspaper The Voice, please help.

This Saturday, October 1st, begins the month of the Holy Rosary and we should try to pray the Rosary often for the needs of our World and so many sufferings.

Today, St. Joseph Parish in Pinole, celebrates its founding as a Parish which is 75 years old. Congratulation and Blessing from the older Parish St. Patrick

Rodeo – Hercules, who will be 100 years in 2023. Glad we are Christian neighbors.

God Bless,
Fr. Larry Young
