Encounter Easter

We want to celebrate our Catholic faith with you and your family this Easter and Holy Week.

Encounter Easter with the St. Patrick Community

The Community of St. Patrick wants to celebrate the source and summit of our Catholic faith with you and your family during Holy Week and Easter. 

COVID-19 has caused some restrictions to our Mass attendance. We would like to invite you to encounter Easter with us during our live stream or by our recordings of the Triduum and Easter Masses. We have provided some information for you to follow along and fully participate in the Holy Week Services and Easter Mass. We also added various resources to enhance your Easter experience. Maybe some of these ideas can become an annual tradition for your family.

FORMED.org

As we celebrate the joy of the Resurrection of Jesus this Easter, I am happy to share with you that St. Patrick has a subscription to FORMED, a premier online platform filled with more than 4,000 Catholic studies, movies, audio dramas, talks, e-books, and even cartoons for your children. FORMED offers well-sourced Catholic enrichment content that is professionally produced, engaging, and best of all, FREE to you.

Our parish is using the material on FORMED to support our ministries and provide continuing 

education for staff members and parishioners. Much of FORMED’s content is available in both 

English and Spanish.

You have easy access to all of the material on FORMED to support your own faith journey and 

that of your family members.
