News of St. Patrick's CCW chapter:

The CCW of St. Patrick met on Thursday August 15. Here is the report of the meeting.

We are continuing to do updates in the Parish house and the ladies present had a tour of the inside of the house. Updates will be done in the bathrooms to get the house in better shape.

A quick bible study was presented and it was on the Old Testament book of Judith. Read it sometime and see the way prayer helped Judith with her relationship to God and how he helped her with her people and saved the tribe.

The Southwest Deanery Council of Catholic Women invites women to its Fall Institute on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at St. Mary's Church in Le Center. The institute is scheduled for 5:30 - 9:00 p.m.  and the program includes Mass, a Meal, a Program, and a Meeting. Denise Haaland, who is the ACCW Legislation Chair is one of the two speakers on the program. Cost per person is $8.00.

On the Feast Day for St. John Vianney, the patron saint of all priests, Father Tom invited the congregation to venerate the relic of St. John Vianney.

St. John Vianney was a parish priest in the small town of Ars, France, in the early 19th century.  In the words of Father Tom, "He loved Jesus so much as a priest that his life of prayer and simplicity radiated a powerful love that attracted thousands of people to come to Ars to be healed and forgiven."

Congratulations to the Confirmation class of 2018!!

May 6, 2018
Our newly confirmed students celebrated becoming full participants in the faith. Parents had made the promises of faith for their children at baptism and received the baptismal candle. In this ceremony, parents pass on the baptismal light to the confirmands signifying that they are now in charge of their faith. Watch the video on our Facebook page of the parents lighting their candles, which they then will pass on to, the confirmands.  2018 confirmands are from front to back: Samuel Manahan, Romecio Davis, Madelyn Skjeveland, Holly Schendel, Kyle Chappuis, Jonathon Caron, Joshua Caron
