Dear St Patrick Church Community:
Latest update: Public Sunday Masses will resume on June 14th. All Masses will be outdoors in the Parking lot. 11:30 AM Mass will remain suspended due to the sun at that time. Mass will continue to be uploaded on YouTube and the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass will remain in place.
Please read this letter from last week about other details and preliminary questions leading up to the final decision of having all Masses outside.
Thank you for your continued support! God bless you!
I have asked our wonderful secretary, Barb Mossinghoff, to call all of our seniors, but it would be great if a whole network of phone calls of care extends to them. Eneida Scoby, our director of catechetical ministries is still reaching out to our youth and parents through many creative ways, and Aida Rodriguez, our bookkeeper continues to pay our bills, track income, and expenses, and help me plan the budget for next fiscal year. We need your continued support, please consider donating to the parish via postal mail or by online giving. Thank you to those of you who have sent us additional donations!
There are a number of resources online to nourish your faith. Dr. Marsha Long, a doctor in music, recorded some beautiful and comforting hymns in our church. Here is a list of Catholic Apps. You can pray this prayer from America Magazine. You can also request a free sample of a booklet of Mass readings and reflections from Give Us This Day. Prayers and Readings for daily and Sunday Mass are being provided free by Magnificat online during this time. You can also listen to Catholic music on the theme of healing on this Spotify playlist.
Besides Mass at our church, but you can also find University of Notre Dame, St Patrick's Cathedral in New York, our own Diocese, and homilies by a priest with an engaging tone, Fr David’ Dweyer, CSP. If you follow Bishop Barron, he's providing us with daily Mass.
To keep up with the latest information from the County, you can text COSD COVID19 to 468-311. The State of California has launched a hotline for seniors: 833-544-2374. City of San Diego Parks and Recreation has started a calling service to seniors. To register, please call 619-236-6905.
For Data: Johns Hopkins has a consolidated count for cases around the world. Here are projections for the United Sates from the University of Washington, which show peak dates and capacity of medical resources. A couple of mathematicians created this other model that using actual data, shows which countries are slowing down in new cases.
Yours in Christ,

St. Patrick's is composed of people like me
St. Patrick's is composed of people like me
I help make it what it is.
It will be friendly if I am.
It will be holy if I am.
Its pews will be filled if I help fill them.
It will do great work if I work.
It will be prayerful if I pray.
It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous giver.
It will bring others into worship, if I invite and bring them in.
It will be a place of loyalty and love, of fearlessness and faith, of compassion, charity, and mercy if I, who make it what it is, am filled with these same things.
Therefore, with the help of God, I now dedicate myself to the task of being all the things that I want my Parish to be.
