And he gave some as apostles, others as prophets, others as evangelists,
others as pastors and teachers, to equip the holy ones for the work of ministry,
for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of faith
and knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the extent of the full stature of Christ
~ Ephesians 4:11-13
September – April
Do you desire to grow in your Catholic faith? Do you seek connection with other women in our parish community? Are you searching for something more in your life? We invite you to consider joining Walking with Purpose at St. Patrick Church. Walking with Purpose is a women’s Catholic Bible study that aims to bring women to a closer relationship with Christ. Personal study and small group discussions at WWP each week link our everyday challenges with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church. If a weekly commitment seems like too much, check out our calendar and join us once a month for our large group gatherings.
Due to personal schedules with leadership, Ladies of Grace is being suspended for the winter and spring.
Still looking for community retreats and events, these will continue to be posted on their Facebook Group page. See link below.
Ladies of Grace has been going strong for 6 years ministering to the women of Saint Patrick Parish. We are a study and reflection group based off the Bible readings for the assigned weekends of the liturgical year in the Catholic church. Our main focuses are socializing with other women of faith, prayer, reflection and study of the Bible. Our groups goal is to bring other women of faith together, to live out our lives as God calls us to, while deepening our relationship with Him and those around us. All ladies are welcome. Invite a friend to join us!
Suspended until further notice.
Fridays | Schedule TBD
6:00 am in the Knights of Columbus Room
The Fight of Faith equips and enables men to engage in the cosmic, spiritual battle raging in our day. Biblical identities will emerge to inspire heroic lives of service to a calling greater than ourselves. Contemplate the mysterious Will of God and discover a Kingdom “not of this world.” Embrace our true identity as sons of the Father while experiencing the intimacy and secrets of a deep and personal friendship with Christ. Uncover the ultimate truth that sheds light on all things: God’s own identity. Fight the good fight of faith to win an imperishable crown of glory.
6:00 am – Light breakfast and socializing
6:15 am – Program begins
6:45 am – Small group discussion
7:15 am – Conclusion
“TMIY exposes many of the problems in our culture and addresses them with honesty and insight. Many men have changed their lives. I have never seen such a profound response.”
“That Man is You! does a tremendous job of forming men in their Catholic faith and reshaping their hearts to be disciples of Jesus Christ – in other words, setting men on fire with the courage and zeal that come from being sons of God. I highly recommend this program. It’s a great gift to the Church.”
-Archbishop Charles Chaput
“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”
Are you between the ages of 18 and 30 and are looking for a faith filled group to hang out with and grow in fellowship and faith. Look no further, we are Minnesconsin and we would love to meet you.

Our mission is to facilitate events that will create fruitful Catholic relationships and help those in the group to grow in their faith and in turn give back to our greater communities. Every month we have two events, one social and one faith based, where you can join a group of young adults as we seek to grow in our faith! Follow us on Facebook or email H Dorian to get on the email list. Poco a Poco, little by little, the Minnesconsin community will grow into a family of believers that will set a fire in the soul of the St. Croix River Valley.

Beginning in September, Saint Patrick Parish will be offering an opportunity to reveal, revisit, and rejuvenate your Catholic Faith in a program called “Revived”. The program will include a presentation of the 4 pillars of the Catholic Church and how best we might find the Goodness, Truth, and Beauty of our Faith. The first pillar on the Creed will be offered this fall to include such topics as the Meaning of Life, the Paschal Mystery, the Church, and Mary and the Last 4 Things. Per our COVID-19 guidelines, our anticipated schedule will be on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th week of the month on Thursdays at 7:00-8:30 pm in the main Church. For those who wish to participate on-line, this session will also be available through Zoom live or taped. If there is sufficient interest, a second in-person session may be available on Sundays between 9:45-11:15 am. The first session will be Thursday, September 10, 2020 (and possibly repeated on Sunday, September 13).
All adults and youth in high school or above are encouraged to participate, need not be a Saint Patrick Parishioner. There is no out of class work, just show up and grow in your faith.

Books on Tap is a faith based book club in which the group reads and discusses faith based books at a local pub over beer, wine, or non-alcoholic beverages. Depending on the length of the book, the group meets from 4 – 7 weeks discussing each book. Each week’s reading is typically around 40 pages, so nothing too overwhelming in one week. The meetings are very casual; come when you can, read what you have time to. Interested in joining, email Roger at the below email address to get on the mailing list for the current book, pages to read, and questions to ponder. All are welcome!
