Welcome to St. Patrick School and Parish
Field Trip to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse on October 20th
We the people of St. Patrick Parish, accept and respond to God’s covenantal relationship with us. We enter into this relationship through Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit to action, through grace, for the purpose of salvation. United in this mission, we pledge as a parish the following:
1. To create a climate of welcome to promote evangelization.
2. Using the sacraments as a basis of prayer and worship, to nurture the spiritual growth of our members through well-prepared liturgies.
3. To provide ongoing Catholic education for all ages with a special commitment to perpetuate our school.
4. To serve others through programs designed to improve family life, social adding justice and the physical, spiritual, and social well being of our parish family and our surrounding communities.
5. To call forth time, talent, and treasure for each parishioner in order to provide adequate ministerial services, physical surroundings and financial resources.
6. To enable all parish members to make known their views on parish matters, both spiritual and temporal, in a consultative manner.
7. To nurture, support and encourage the God-given calling of each member of the parish.
8. To avoid making judgments in regard to other people and to be people of forgiveness and reconciliation
