Sharing our Time, Talent, & Treasure with the People of Norristown, PA Since 1835
Bienvenidos a todos!
As you can see from our
Mission Statement, we at St. Patrick believe that as God's people, we are
called: "to bring the transforming love of our Triune God to those
around us." "llevar el amor transformante de la
Trinidad a los que nos rodean."
We at St.Patrick are in
awe and in love with God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Therefore, we accept the gift of God's love, the Eucharist/la Eucaristia
whose power can convert us and transform the world.
At St. Patrick we
celebrate and share the love of God in so many ways. Most importantly, we
celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in English y en espaņol.
People from all walks of life---every age, race, color, background, economic
status and language gather for Mass each weekend to share in the great love
of Christ. We recognize the rich diversity of our parish that gathers for
the Eucharist and then we strive to bring God to our families, neighbors,
Norristown and even to the rest of the world. United in God's love and
strengthened by the sacraments we are all sent forth by the power of the
Eucharist to reach out to all in the Norristown area. Our ministries
include Faith Formation classes for children and adults. There is a very
active Youth Group for middle school to high school parishioners.
‘Disciples in Mission’ is a wonderful Bible Study group for adults. There
are English Classes for our recently arrived brothers and sisters from
Mexico and other countries abroad. A Parish Nurse directs a program for the
sick and there are visits by Eucharistic Ministers to Montgomery Hospital
and area nursing homes on a regular basis. There is a great Ministry of
Consolation and of course, there is a huge Circulo de Oracion, our
Hispanic prayer group. We also work closely with many agencies in the
Norristown area to offer a variety of educational and informational
opportunities to those in need.
Throughout the year we as
a parish celebrate our diversity with many events, like the Irish Festival,
Mexican Independence Day, Nuestra Seņora de Guadalupe and Soul Food Sunday. We all come
together to make our Christmas Bazaar a huge success and for the Parish
Feast Day we share an international meal.
As pastor of this
wonderful, welcoming community I invite all to take a closer look at our
web-site, In fact, I encourage all to come and visit us, celebrate the
Eucharist with us, experience the warmth of God's love that we all
experience together as brothers and sisters in Christ. I invite you to join
us, to become a member of this vibrant parish. Please plan to come to know
and experience God's love for all as revealed in the person of Jesus
Christ. We look forward to welcoming you to St. Patrick and hoping that you
will join us in loving God and our neighbors.
May God bless you and your
Dios les bendiga a usted y toda su familia!
En Cristo, Padre Gus
