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.

"Loving God, your servant Saint Peter Julian Eymard was captivated by your Son's love revealed to us in the Eucharist; he greatly desired to manifest this love to his contemporaries. Saint Peter Julian established a new form of religious life which is nourished by the Eucharist: celebrated, contemplated and enriched with many ministries.

Through Saint Peter Julian's intercession, call forth many young people who will labor in your Church as priests, deacons, brothers or sisters. Give us the grace to become like the bread and wine of the Eucharist which is broken and shared for the life of the world. We ask this through Christ our Lord."
