March 1 is Ash Wednesday—a day of fast and abstinence. Even though it is not a holy day of obligation, the Church wants as many Catholics as possible to be able to begin the holy season of Lent with Mass. Ashes will be distributed at Masses:
8:00 AM (English), 9:15 AM School Mass, 5:30 PM (English) and 7:00 PM (Spanish).
Welcome! Wherever you may be on your spiritual path, at Saint Patrick Catholic Parish you will find a supportive community with a wealth of opportunities for personal growth.
Located in the heart of North Park, we are honored to have been a part of the North Park story since 1922. We would love to have your family join the parish community.
If you are new to the parish, a great way to meet new people is to get involved. Church is more than the building, it is the community. We need you to help us continue to grow the church.
Catholics in the United States are obligated to fast (less food) on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Those whose age is 18-59 are to eat less than two full meals on those days. All Catholics, 14 years of age and older, are to abstain (no meat) on Ash Wednesday, all of the Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday. If you suffer from ill health, follow the dietary advice of your physician with the blessing of God, Church, and your local Pastor.
