INVITATION TO PRIVATE PRAYER - The Sanctuary or temporary church area in the large hall will be open on Wednesdays for private prayer. Please enter by way of the lower door and follow the appropriate signs.

It is very important that we maintain a limit of 10 people in Adoration at a time if we wish to continue visiting Jesus on Wednesdays. If you do not have a scheduled time please be aware of those who may be waiting and perhaps self impose a time limit to allow others the opportunity to also visit with Him.

The construction of the St. Patrick’s Church extension and renovation has begun. To keep the parishioners of the parish informed of the progress of the task, an ongoing series of photos indicating various phases of the effort will be uploaded and may be accessed by clicking.

There is an important request that we respect construction site etiquette and not enter the construction area which is fenced off. This is for our safety.

Please use the lower entry into the church.

  • Rebar to be installed and the crane will return to erect the exterior wall. The goal is to pour cement by the end of this week.
  • If you are thinking about purchasing a columbarium niche, this would be a good time to do it.

The ongoing need for healing and reconciliation of those who have experienced sexual abuse is essential for the health of the Body of Christ. The Diocese of Victoria is committed to further responsibility, accountability and transparency in matters of sexual abuse in order to facilitate healing and justice for victim-survivors.

As such, two Independent Reporting Agencies have been contracted to receive reports of current or historical sexual abuse by a member of the Diocese (clergy, religious, employees, or volunteers) via secure and confidential platforms, which will further assist in contacting the appropriate authorities and access counselling services.

For more information on how to report Sexual Abuse, please click HERE or on the red button above.
