First Communion Prayer Dear Jesus, Through bread and wine at the Last Supper, and by your holy word, you gave the Eucharist to your Church. You transformed common food and drink into your Body and Blood, and offered us a share in your life in ways we still cannot fully understand. Grant now that these young people will always treasure the gift they have in you. Give them the grace to be faithful to you and to remain in communion with your Church. As they receive their First Communion, the Bread of Life and Cup of Salvation, make them always aware of the hope they have for eternal life in you. Amen.



Everyone is invited to attend the Diaconate Ordination on May 22nd. Tim (from Worland) was a seminarian here at St. Patrick's from June 2007 to July 2008. Rob was at the Newman Center in Laramie.

Today--Sunday, May 3rd

OUR INDISPENSABLE FRIEND Who Baptized you, making you a child of God? A Priest. Who, when you sinned, did you go to for the Sacrament of Penance for absolution, making you clean again in God's sight? A Priest. Who offered Holy Mass and consecrated the bread and wine, that by the power of the Holy Spirit was transformed into the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, so that you could be nourished by Him in Holy Communion and consoled by Him always in this Blessed Sacrament? A Priest. Who taught you the articles of faith, preparing you for Confirmation and making you strong in your beliefs? A Priest. Who advised you on family, important relationship matters, and vocational discernment? A Priest. Who will be ready to give you the last Sacrament of Anointing when you are sick and dying? A Priest. Who will say your last Mass and the last prayers of Christian Burial over your still body? A Priest. Do we not owe a debt of gratitude to always pray for such a friend? Should we not pray for his well being and forgiveness if he should fail? Should we not pray for Priests and vocations? There is no Holy Mass and no Holy Eucharist without a priest! The Parish Offices will be closed on Monday, May 25th in observance of Memorial Day. The Parish Offices will reopen on Tuesday, May 26th at their regular office hours. Have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend.
