in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”
Matthew 28: 19-20
We, the Catholic Community of St. Patrick, are disciples of Jesus Christ. As stewards of His Gospel, we are companions on a common journey to God. We are committed to welcome one another to actively participate in worship and service. We strive to be like our patron, St. Patrick, and to be messengers of God’s Word to the Tampa Bay Area.
