Dear Parishioners and Friends of Saint Patrick,
Today we celebrate Pentecost. We also celebrate 100 Years of Faithful Service as we join Fr. Hollis, Deacon Merriman and Deacon Staab on the occasion of their milestone anniversaries of ordination.
As Father Hollis celebrates 50 years of priesthood and both deacons, respectively, celebrate 25 years of diaconal ordination, we thank God for their ministries and lives of service. We also take this time to thank them for their service and leadership.
May the Lord continue to bless them and keep them in life and service. And may our young people who join in this celebration discover God’s call for each of them.
On behalf of our entire parish family, congratulations and may each of them enjoy many more years of fruitful ministry!
With prayerful best wishes,
