Let me introduce myself, I am Father Jude Shayo, the priest at St. Patrick's Catholic Church at Moody Air Force Base.  We welcome all military affiliated members to join us at Mass.  If you are new to our community, please introduce yourself to me this Sunday.

Our faith community is dedicated to creating an environment of fellowship through worship, outreach and services.  I encourage you to become active in our ministries.  Becoming part of our ministry is a great way to get to know people while becoming an active member of the church.  In addition, service gives you a
creative outlet to living your baptismal commitments, helps the parish in fulfilling its pastoral obligations, and gives us the opportunity to get to know you personally.

Prayer Requests 

Do you have a prayer request?  Then visit our prayer request page and let us and others pray with you.

Why do we pray?  We pray to be in communion with God; to raise our mind and heart to God in thanksgiving; to praise His glory and to request good things from God.

Can't we simply pray for ourselves?  The answer is "Yes" and you're encourage to do so but James 5:16 states we must also pray for one another and that the fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful.  With this in mind, we want to join you in your prayers.

Father Jude Celebrates 28 Years as a Priest

All men who, through the Sacrament of Holy Orders, have become priests participate in Christ's priesthood; they act in persona Christi Capitis, in the person of Christ, the Head of His Body, the Church.

The ministerial orders of the Catholic Church are those of bishop, presbyter, and deacon.  A Catholic priest fulfills the role of mediator between God and man.

Father Jude celebrates 28 years of priesthood. 

The men and women of St Patrick's Catholic Community thank you.  We thank you for your insight, direction and for being our intermediary

The Parish Council Meeting was rescheduled to 29 Jul 18 at 11:00 at the chapel.  We will project any events we want to have during the year.  All parishioners are welcome and we value your input.

"Recognizing the needs of others is a sign of genuine conversion, which only happens when the heart is ready to be changed by Jesus.  Conversion and forgiveness of sins are two aspects of mercy.  How often do we tell ourselves:  ' must change; I cannot continue like this.  On this path, my life will not bear fruit.  It will be a useless life, and I will not be happy.'  Jesus invites us to change our lives.  On this path,, my life will not bear fruit.  It will be a useless life, and I will not be happy.'  Jesus invites us to change our lives.  He, with the Holy Spirit, plants in us the seed of this restlessness in order to change our lives a little bit for the better.  Just open the door, and he will do all the rest.  He does everything.  But open wide the door, so that he can heal us and carry us forward.  Jesus won people over with kindness, with love."

  Most Precious Blood of Jesus

July is the month of the "Most Precious Blood of Jesus."  The traditional feast day for the memory and the worship of Christ's Blood is July 1st.  Every time and age needs that blood, which is the only way to obtain salvation.  Indeed, in order that the disciples might benefit from that blood, Jesus left it for them in the Eucharist, which is the living memorial.

In his anguish he prayed even more earnestly, and his sweat fell to the ground life great drops of blood (Luke 22:44).

At the Last Supper, the eve before his bloody sacrifice on the cross (26) (Now) as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had said the blessing he broke it and fave it to the disciples.  "Take it and eat," he said, "this is my body" (27) then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he handed it to them saying "Drink from this, all of you, (28) for this is my blood, the blood of the covenant, poured otu for many for the forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26:26-28).

Climactically on the cross, blood oozed out of his nailed hands and feet.  His mission accomplished "he gave the Spirit (John 19:30); a soldier pierced open his side with a lance and blood and water flowed out.  The church sees these events as Jesus' labor pangs in giving birth to a new creation, humanity and the church through the sacraments of initiation:  baptism (water), confirmation (the Spirit) and the Eucharist (blood).
