A New Ministry Begins at St. Pat’s

          It always excites me when I see that a new ministry begins in our parish. Fr. Mike always reminds me that these ministries are always inspired by the Holy Spirit, and to me, that’s even more exciting! One of the newest ministries within our parish is the St. Michael and St. Florian (Veterans and First Responders) Group. I attended the first meeting on December 5th and I was amazed at the great attendance as well as the wonderful conversation. I can not wait until our next meeting, which will most likely include some good food too.

I would like to reach out to all our veterans and first responders to plan to attend our January meeting. I believe you will not be disappointed. My good friend, Fr. Johnson, always told me that when you have a meeting in church and when it is completed, sometimes no one wants to leave after the meeting. He said that is good because no one wants to walk away from the presence of the Holy Spirit. This is what we all experienced at our inaugural meeting. So, please mark your calendars to join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, January 9th  at 6:00 PM in room 208 of the school. We look forward to seeing you.

Deacon John
