A Message from Our Pastor

May 22, 2022

Dear People of St. Patrick Parish,

The month of MAY, the 5th month of the Gregorian calendar,
the early vigorous blooming part of human life, Springtime, and thank God that winter is over and no more shoveling snow and wearing heavy coats.

The flowers are blooming and color is rich in flowers and plants. Except for these past two years, the rains have made rich in beauty and pleasant smells. I like to think that God was smiling when He made the month of May.

Do you have happy memories of the month of May in your past?

There are lots of weddings and nine months later, a cute little boy or girl is in the family. There are first communions, confirmations, graduations, ordinations to the priesthood and oh, don’t forget, proms, parties and end of school celebrations, etc.

And of course, Mother’s Day cards and time for thanking and honoring our  mothers and grandmothers. Shopping for new swimsuits and summer shorts, etc. And finally, there are May processions honoring Mary, the mother of Jesus and lots of rosaries.

Psalm 67 that we sing today, tells us, “May God have pity on us and bless us; May He let his face shine upon us.”

Let us smile as we receive Holy Communion, let us all use our voices to praise  God by singing the hymns and being happy at Mass in the Church.

God Bless,
Fr. Larry Young
