Fr. John Gerritts - June 9, 2019


This past Wednesday the 8th graders from our school celebrated their graduation. Our nineteen eighth graders are a wonderful group of young people who have a unique relationship with one another as they have traveled together through our school. When I first arrived they were kindergarteners. This is the first class at Saint Patrick I have had the privilege of being with for all their elementary and middle school years. To use a familiar phrase, “My, how they have grown!” I look forward to seeing the ways they succeed in high school and beyond. May God continue to bless and protect them.

Congratulations also to Father Tim Cone. Father Tim was ordained a week ago Friday as a priest for the Diocese of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. For the past two years we have served as his teaching parish while he completed his studies at the Saint Paul Seminary. Father Tim will be with us on Thursday, June 13, for a Mass of Thanksgiving. The Mass will begin at 6:30 PM and be followed by a reception. Plan to join us to give thanks to God and pray for Father Tim as he begins his service as a priest.

We have three spots on our Parish Pastoral Council that we are looking to fill this year as terms expire for some of our members. If you are interested in serving on the Council or have any questions, contact me at the office. We have a simple form we ask you to complete and then the existing Council reviews the applications and selects the new members based on the Council’s needs in helping to be a leadership group for our parish.

As we begin our summer months we have many opportunities for kids to grow in their faith. In fact we have something for kids of almost any age. Make sure to follow the bulletin and check out our website to find things for your kids to do this summer that will help them grow in their faith. While some things like the mission trip and Extreme Faith Camp are already full, there are still many activities from which to choose.

Recently I had the opportunity to be the substitute teacher for the day in our school’s 3rd grade classroom. Doing this occasionally reminds me how hard teachers work. I was tired by the time evening came around, but it was a great day! I hope it was as much fun for the kids as it was for me. Remember – now is the time to register your children for Saint Patrick School. We offer programs for children beginning at age 3 and going through 8th grade. We are a Catholic School offering faith-based instruction, numerous specialists, and tuition assistance. My hope is that no family feels they cannot choose a Catholic School education because of the inability to pay tuition. Contact our school principal at the school for more details.

Finally, congratulations to Father Patrick McConnell, who previously served Saint Patrick Parish as our associate. Father Patrick has been named pastor of the parishes in Medford and Whittlesey. And congratulations also to Father David Neuschwander, originally from Saint Patrick Parish, has been named Parochial Administrator of the parishes in Hayward and Cable.


Clergy Sexual Abuse in the Church


Our Parish Council formed a task force to investigate ways Saint Patrick Parish can respond to the issues of clergy sexual abuse within our Church, including hosting a Mass of Healing in October and a listening session in November. Please click here to learn more about the Task Force's recommendation to Bishop Powers.
