Drive Through Communion INFO

Screen Shot 2020 04 29 At 1.03.53 Pm

Flocknote is an email and text messaging tool created for churches and other community organizations. It assists us in communicating with our parishioners. At St. Pat's, we’ve adopted this new and improved way of communicating that will make it much simpler for you to get the information you want from us! It’s powered by a service called Flocknote... like sending a "note" to your "flock"-- Flocknote.

This is all totally free for you to use, no need to download anything or create a password in order to participate. Just take a couple minutes to sign up and Flocknote lets you receive email or text messages from the groups and ministries that you choose. It even allows you to reply directly back to those messages so we can get feedback and hear from you in an efficient manner.

Most importantly, your info is kept totally private and, again, it lets you choose the specific groups and ministries you want to get email and text messages from here at St. Patrick Church. In addition to regular group and ministry communication, we’ll use Flocknote sparingly to send you important all-Parish information.

Remember: you can update your communication preferences or unsubscribe from any of these updates at any time! Please make sure our messages don’t go to your spam folder by adding mail@flocknote.com to your contacts.

WHIP Collection:

This is a message from Gavin Harpman from the Charity in Truth Committee at St. Pats:

Our regularly scheduled weekend for the quarterly WHIP (Washington Helps Its People) food collection would have been at all Masses on the 16th & 17th of this month. Given the Shelter In Place order is continuing this month and that some families are continuing to experience financial hardship in our community, we would like to go ahead with the scheduled food collection by holding a food drive on Saturday, May 16th from 4:30 - 6:00. The drive-by collection will again be held in the parking lot next to the St. Pats gym. We are asking for donations of cereal, but any canned goods are much appreciated. 

In addition, WHIP indicates they are continuing to experience a supply shortage of toilet paper, so parishioner donations would be greatly appreciated. 

The tremendous generosity of our parish continues to blessing to the community. Your assistance in spreading the word of the food collection is vital to our efforts. Thank you so much for your help!
