St. Patrick Youth Ministry

Welcome to St. Patrick Youth Ministry!  St. Patrick Youth Group is a service and social group.  We follow the goals of Renewing the Vision as set forth by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.  (1)  Empowerment – To empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today.  (2) Participation – To draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community.  (3) Growth – To foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

All HS and MS SPY are invited to go ice skating at the RDV Sportsplex on Friday, January 31st from 6:30 pm – 10:30 pm.  This is a family event so parents and siblings are welcome!  The cost will be $13 and will include a hot chocolate voucher.  Youth will need to bring any additional money for other snacks they may wish to purchase.  MONEY MUST BE PREPAID TO RECEIVE THE DISCOUNT.  Money should be turned into Susan Engel by January 29th along with permission slips.  Scroll down to the end of this page for links to the Permission Slip and Medical Form.  Contact Susan Engel at for more information.

Needed— Men and Women of Character

The world needs men and women …who cannot be bought;

whose word is their bond; who put character above wealth;

who possess opinions and a strong will;

who are larger than their vocations;

who do not hesitate to take risks;

who will not lose their individuality in a crowd;

who will be as honest in small affairs as in greater;

who will make no compromise with wrong;

whose ambitions   are not confined to their own selfish desires;

who will not say they do it “because everybody else does it;”

who are true to their friends through good and bad,
in adversity as well as in prosperity;

who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning,
and hardheadedness are the best qualities for winning success;

who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;

who can say “no” with emphasis, although all the rest of the world says “yes.”

And who can say “yes” to answering the call of Christ.

I arise today
Through God's strength:
God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me, God's eye to look before me, God's ear to hear me, God's word to speak for me, God's hand to guard me, God's way to lie before me, God's shield to protect me, God's host to save me

Christ to shield me today
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
