"The Son of Man will rise again. If anyone wants to be first, he must make himself servant of all."

Jesus calls on us to set ourselves apart from the world and serve others.

Our world is full of arguments and conflicts. People fight and despise one another out of jealousy and selfish desires. Today, Jesus calls on us to be different from the world and learn to serve others. This is how we can be the greatest in his eyes.

Grassroots Kind Hearts Society is a volunteer based initiative in Campbell River, that provides home cooked meals for those living on the streets; those who are at risk of homelessness and those that are living in extreme poverty. They are serving up to 70+ people 7 nights per week at 5:00pm at the Radiant Life Church at 1251 Cypress St They turn no-one away.

This past Wednesday, parishioners from St. Patrick’s Parish cooked, then served approximately 60 very grateful guests for the Grassroots KindHearts Society. While the CWL is organizing teams to host a dinner, we are hoping more members of our parish will get involved with this worthy ministry in our community. Ideally we will have teams of 4/5 people to cook and serve at least twice a month. To volunteer or contribute please call Emily at 250-287-3003 or emhepburn@gmail.com.

Religious Education News We are excited to begin another year of Catechism classes! We will start the year off with a special Mass Sunday Sept. 23rd at 9 am. The Mass is being said for the Intention of all students, catechists and youth leaders, and we will have the Ceremony of Recommitment and Commissioning of our teachers.

Registration for catechism classes with be Thursday Sept. 27th from 6:00 - 7:00 pm in the large hall. You may still register after that date. Regular classes begin Thursday Oct. 4th at 6:00 pm. We offer classes for Grade One to Grade Five. We are considering offering a kindergarten class if we have enough interest.

Classes are open to all children of parish families. We are currently in need of at least one new catechist to join our amazing teaching team! This is a rewarding way to be involved in your parish and support is always in place if you would like to give it a try. Our very own St. Patrick’s Pre-school has two spaces available for this year.

Parish Directories The church pictorial directories have arrived from the publisher (I.P.C.) and the parish volunteer team is preparing them for distribution. The directories are being labeled with the names of those who had their photos taken by the publisher as well as those who preordered their copies. The plan is to distribute the directories next week after all Masses Sept. 22nd & 23rd. They will also be available during regular parish office hours (Tues. -Fri.) beginning Sept. 18th.

New parishioners and others whose pictures are not in the directory may still be able to purchase a copy after the regular distribution is finished the price is $20.

Cremation & Funeral Liturgies: Cremation has been permitted for Catholics for a number of years now. Most recently, in December 2017 the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, acknowledging a pastoral need, granted permission for the “Order of Christian Funerals: Supplement for Celebrations with Cremated Remains” to be used in dioceses across Canada. To read more, please click HERE.

ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT: Takes place every Wednesday following 9:00 am Mass until 10:00 pm. Why not come out and spend a quiet hour with the Lord? Devotional reading material is provided for your use at the back of the Church.
