Parish Life

Get Involved in the Life of the Parish Today

A healthy and vibrant parish is made up of faith-filled individuals dedicated to the service of Christ and His Church. While the heart of a parish is the Eucharist, the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. At The Cathedral of Saint Patrick, we offer a variety of ways to be part of that communal family. Our ministries, committees and organizations are staffed by volunteers who share their time and talent. These are the heart and soul of our parish family - individuals who minister to members of our parish, our community, and our neighbors. Through our parish ministries, one can learn and grow as an individual, meet others who share their values, and reach out to serve the larger parish and community.

The four pillars of hospitality, prayer, formation and service invite parishioners to experience, witness and live the stewardship way of life in response to their baptismal call to discipleship. Strengthening these pillars make us faithful disciples to the love given us freely by our loving God.

This pillar of stewardship encourages welcoming new members to the parish. When parishioners feel welcomed, it fosters a sense of ownership and personal involvement in lived stewardship to the parish family.


This pillar of stewardship enables the Christian to nurture a personal relationship with God. While parishioners find great fulfillment in giving themselves to parish life, prayer purifies and intensifies the intention of the steward. Prayer increases our yearning to receive the Eucharist. Nourished by the Word of God and the Eucharist, we are strengthened as a parish family to go and to serve the Lord. Stewardship is a lived response of the disciple to follow this command.

This pillar of stewardship enlivens the desire on the part of the steward to share what one has received and to share with a generous, grateful and loving heart. As stewardship is a formidable task involving education of the mind and conversion of the heart, each parish organization plays a role in the faith formation of its parishioners.

This pillar of stewardship engages the steward not only in works for the parish but for the diocese, the community and the Universal Church. Although service is what most people think of in relation to stewardship, service brings into practice the three other pillars of hospitality, prayer and formation.
