Welcome to St. Patrick's Catholic Community
Welcome from Pastoral Leader, Mary Krueger
St. Patrick's is located on Doty Island at 324 Nicolet Boulevard, Menasha and serves Menasha, Neenah, and the greater Fox Cities. I welcome you to this site.
I invite you to visit St. Patrick's and if you are seeking a parish community to join our parish family. We live our parish motto Open Hearts and Helping Hands. I am pleased by the deep sense of love and welcoming each parishioner has for St. Patrick's Parish and all who worship here. St. Patrick's offers Liturgy of the Word for Children at both Sunday Liturgies and our church is equipped with a Hearing Loop.
No matter your present status in the Catholic Church;
No matter your current family or marital situation;
No matter your past or present religious affiliation;
No matter your personal history, age, background, race, etc;
No matter your own self-image or esteem;
St. Patrick's invites, welcomes, accepts, loves and respects you!
Following much prayer and careful consideration, the dispensation for Sunday Mass obligation has been lifted. All Catholics will once again gather as a community of faith on Sundays. The lifting of the dispensation was announced in a decree issued by Bishop David Ricken on Monday, Sept. 7th. (www.gbdioc.org/sundayobligationdecree)
Please note there are still occasions when the obligation to attend Sunday Mass does not apply:
- If individual Catholics struggle with serious health concerns or are physically or morally prevented from worshipping at Mass for a grave reason.
- If individuals are frail due to illness or age or, in their well-formed consciences, believe that going into public places -- including Sunday worship at Mass -- would place their health or the health of their loved ones in serious jeopardy.
- If individuals are sick, or have been in contact with someone who has been sick.
The faithful who are unable to attend Mass are urged to make holy the Lord’s Day and to pray, read the Scriptures, watch a broadcast or livestreamed Mass and take part in acts of charity.
The diocese has also issued guidelines for public Masses at www.gbdioc.org/sundayobligationreinstatement.
These guidelines include requirement of face masks, and that, while restrictions will be lifted on the percentage of people at Mass, the standards of social distancing will still be upheld.
The obligation to attend Mass for Catholics reflects our faith in Jesus Christ, the blessing of the Holy Eucharist and an acknowledgment of His great love for us.
We welcome you back to Mass with great joy!
We will celebrate at our normal Mass times: Sundays 8:30am & 10:30am.
Please enter through the East parking lot door where an usher will greet you.
We are so happy to be celebrating with you again!
