New session of the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults &
Bible Study Class:
On Mondays, at 7 PM in the
Parish Center, we will start a new session of the Rite
of Christian Initiation for Adults. This program prepares adults
and teenagers (15 years or older) to receive the Sacraments of Christian
Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Communion).
The evening continues on Mondays with the Adult Bible
Study at 7:30 PM. We will finish the Acts of
the Apostles and Revelations before we start a series on
Church History. As is always the case, whether you can make it weekly
or only occasionally, you are most welcome! Bring a friend.
By popular demand, we will run a six week series
– Brewing Theology (coffee, not beer!) – for anyone
interested. We will meet: on wednesday morning,
at the Monsignor Healy Room in the Convent/Parish
Offices of Saint Patrick, after the 9 AM Daily Mass. We
will start a little before 9:45 am and end by 10:45
am. Coffee will be served! This first series will take up specific
questions regarding Satan from the important and evocation book,
I See Satan Fall Like Lightening, by René Girard. No previous study,
however, is necessary or assumed. These questions will guide us:
1. Have you ever really wondered about SATAN; biblically referred
to in the book of Job as, “the chief prosecuting magistrate, the
prosecutor in a case at court”, and as most of us recall from our
catechism classes, “Lucifer” the fallen Angel, as well as a murderer?
2. How can we recognize him as he goes about his work?
3. How are we unknowingly pulled into his plan and his works?
4. How and why does God allow Satan to achieve as much as he does?
5. How did Jesus defeat Satan?
6. How does all this help us make sense of the world today?
We are in need of non-perishable food items such
canned fruits and
in addition to toothpaste,
toilet paper and
Donations may be brought to the parish office or left in the bin
at the back of the church.

my soul. How do I find the words to share How God has pulled me
out of the darkness and brought me back into the light, Truly I
say to you my brothers and sisters in Christ, the world is in darkness
and full of evil; In this world that man has changed from the vision
of God You need a safe harbor, a retreat from the storm, a tranquil
port. God can show you a better way, the way the truth and the light,

the father" come and experience for yourself; a safe harbor,
a tranquil port from the storm and the peace that God can give you.
