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 brand new 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? Yes and you’re encouraged 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.

Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy (2016)

Year of MercyExtraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, 8 Dec 15 -
20 Nov 16.  "It will by a Holy Year of Mercy," declares Pope Francis.

The logo and the motto together provide a fitting summary of what the Jubilee Year is all about.  The motto Merciful Like the Father (taken from the Gospel of Luke, 6:36) serves as an invitation to follow the merciful example of the Father who asks us not to judge or condemn but to forgive and to give love and forgiveness without measure (Lk 6:37-38).  The logo, the work of Jesuit Father Marko I. Rupnik, presents a theme of mercy.  In fat, it represents an image quite important to the early church:  that of the completion the mystery of his incarnation culminating in redemption.  The logo has been designed in such a way so as to express the profound way in which the Good Shepherd touches the flesh of humanity and does so with a love with the power to change one's life.


Parish Handbooks

St. Patrick's Catholic Community Handbooks are available in the foyer.  Please get yours today.  If you have any questions, please see Fr. Shayo or Anna.
