A Message from Our Pastor

June 09, 2024

Dear People of St. Patrick Parish,

When God told Adam and Eve that they had sinned, Adam put the blame on his wife Eve and even God for creating her. Eve put the blame on the snake that represents Satan. Does this theme remind us of how we put the blame upon others when we sin?

The second readings from Paul to the Corinthians, reminds that our earthly life is temporary and in death there will be a change and a new life begins hopefully with God in heaven.

Yes, we are to enjoy life on earth and make every effort to be sure that we earn the right to have full and complete happiness, joy and real love forever in heaven with God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit. Hopefully all our family members and friends will be with us.

In the Gospel Jesus looked around at the crowd and said, “ Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.”

Here we are in St. Patrick Catholic Church today, look around and see that we are all together and think about how we are all God’s family. Let us be the best family members and pray for one another and look forward to being together one day in heaven. Let us help each other to make that happen.

God Bless,
Fr. Larry Young
Your Pastor
