I realize this has been a tough time and there is much sadness, plus anger, about the merging of St. Mary’s with St. Patrick’s. However, I pray, with Christ’s help, we can create a vibrant new, faith filled Parish.
This will include unifying our spiritual, outreach, and social activities from our communities.
St. Mary’s ministries (lectors, Eucharistic ministers, choir, senior programs, etc…) and committees (Parish Council, finance, etc…) will be combined with St. Patrick’s. St. Mary’s outreach programs will continue to serve our city’s poor. During this transition, there will be challenges along the way and also, new opportunities. Your participation will be welcomed and needed for our future.
I, Fr. Fernando Hernandez, and my fellow priests, Fr. Patrick Bonner, and Fr. Baldi Socualaya, look forward to seeing you soon. God's blessings and protection be upon you !
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at 845-561-0885.
