In the gospel, we are called to reach out beyond ourselves to bring the compassionate love of God to all people. St. Patrick seeks to be responsive to the needs of our local community and the world through a variety of ministries based at the church and elsewhere.
Over the years, we have contributed to many worthy causes, and continue to do so. Our parish members give generously of their time, talent and treasure to make a difference in the world in the Name of Christ.
Community Meal Share – The last Monday of the month, we partner with First Presbyterian Church to offer a meal for those in our community. Parishioners are encouraged to bring a side dish, provide transportation, set-up, clean-up and dine with guests.
Food Boxes – Twice a month, on the second and fourth Tuesdays each month, those who are hungry may receive a food box from St. Patrick’s. This ministry is funded by Kroger Plus Community Rewards and donations of food box items from our parishioners. Please check with the office if you would like to donate to this ministry.
St. Patrick Preschool – St. Patrick’s offers a 5-STARS rated preschool for ages 3-5. Since 1970, this school has offered exceptional preschool education. As a community ministry, scholarships are available. Here is a review on what we are up to.
Community Outreach – Funds from our general budget support PERM (Pulaski Emergency Relief MInistry), Catholic Charity Outreach at Saint Mildred’s Roman Catholic Church, God’s Pantry, and Over My Head Homeless Shetler. We partner financially, prayerfully, and resourcefully with these agengies to fight poverty in Pulaski County.
