Toward fulfilling its mission St. Patrick's will seek to become a community of faith, called by God, united in Christ, led by the Spirit, in which all members realize their individual dignity and worth regardless of age, sex, or family origin.
It is hoped that all members will see themselves as ministers and will participate in the various ministries of the parish, sharing their time, talent and treasure for the building up of the community.

It is clear that our society is in the midst of a culture war. More
than ever, people need God, but sadly, many have lost sight of the
treasures of the Catholic faith. We can see the reality of our
fallen-away brothers and sisters not only in our nation as a whole, but
even in our own families and neighborhoods.
The evidence is shocking:
* Only 24 percent of U.S. adult Catholics attend Mass on a weekly basis.
* The number of Americans identifying themselves as “unaffiliated”
with a religious tradition (whether atheist, agnostic, or “nothing”) is
continuing to increase dramatically, and now makes up 16.1 percent of
the total population.
* As many as 100,000 baptized Catholics in the U.S. drift away from Church each year.
