St.Patrick's Feasibility Study

Thank you for your participation.  Your honest feedback is appreciated as we work together to prepare for the future of your parish and its missions.  Below is the vision statement created by your leadership. Please answer the questions based on this statement.  
St. Patrick's Church.

From its humble beginnings to the present-day campus over the span of 114 years, God has abundantly blessed St. Patrick Catholic Church by His providence to do His work. Our parish campus is vital as we grow and enhance our commitment to our faith and provides a place to learn and worship. It provides a place where we can pass on to future generations our beliefs, our values, and the teachings of our Catholic heritage. It provides a place for us to gather as a family to share our faith.


Our Vision ….

Working together to fulfill our vision, we hope to be able to enhance and enrich our parish campus, which will bring us together as a faith family and will lead us to a deeper relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. These projects will provide facilities that all members of our parish can utilize, making our parish and school more welcoming and inviting, while also being more safe and efficient.

The Future ….

As we look to the future of our parish and the education of our children, we need to continue to maintain and enhance our parish campus, recognizing its importance in our faith journey. Our forefathers had the passion, the vision, and the commitment to build our parish for us, so that we could have a place to worship, deepen our faith and grow our parish family. Like our forefathers, it is now our turn to be good stewards of the many gifts God has given to us, by continuing that mission of providing for the current and future needs of our parish families.


Let us hope and pray that our future at St. Patrick’s will be as successful as the past.


The impact this vision will have on our St. Patrick families is limitless and we urge all members to participate by providing feedback on this vision and by praying for the future of our parish.
