You’re the Key to Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible! If you would like to have a deeper relationship with God and a better understanding of your faith, then join us for Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible.You will not only benefit personally from being part of this study; you will also help to bring about a profound renewal in our parish as we grow closer to Christ. St. Patrick Roman Catholic Parish will begin Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible on September 30th at 7:00 PM For more information or to sign up, contact Barb Turk at (724) 745-6560 ext 10, or email to:

Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible helps you uncover the story woven through Scripture with its clever narrative approach and ingenious color-coded Bible Timeline. It is a great way to get the “big picture” of the Bible and see how our Catholic Faith is rooted in Scripture. You’ll see how the Bible reveals God’s loving plan for your life, and you will learn helpful ways to put your faith into practice.

The study includes a series of eight informative and engaging half-hour videos presented by Jeff Cavins. Each video will be followed by a lively group discussion. You will receive a color-coded Bible Timeline Chart and a Bible study workbook.

Now Scheduling 2016 Masses

The September collection envelopes contain a purple envelope for 2016 Mass requests. Please submit your request by means of the collection basket, the mail slot next to the Rectory office door, or by mail. DO NOT ASK for more than two Masses (only one of which can be for a weekend Mass, as there are only 52 weekends and 364 days in which to schedule them). Any Mass requests that are over the limit of two will be scheduled at one of our local nursing homes with Fr. Pat Barkey as the celebrant. The Masses will be scheduled in the order received. Please include a Mass stipend of $10.00 per Mass, and a self-addressed envelope if you would like a written response with the date in which your Mass has been scheduled. Thank you for your patience and prayerful understanding. PHONE NUMBER: Please write your current phone number on the envelope for your Mass request. We have noticed that when we need to change a scheduled Mass some of the phone numbers that we have are no longer in service.
