Welcome to Old St. Patrick’s Church! It is through your presence, Old St. Pat’s is able to provide compelling educational programs, invaluable Outreach services, rewarding volunteer opportunities, and spiritual nourishment for all. We would be delighted if you would consider sharing your time and talents within the Old St. Patrick’s community.
Many visitors or new members ask, “Why the term, Member?” instead of the common term, “parishioner.” This Membership language is intentional. No, you are not joining an elite club and no, there really aren’t member perks. However, you are choosing your spiritual home. You are choosing to pray with us, serve with us, and provide your generous gifts with us. You are choosing this sacred place as your spiritual home. We entrust the Mission of Old St. Pat’s to its Members.
Our current generation of members joins with those of the past in striving to build an experience of Church that is genuinely welcoming, mission oriented, and Christ centered. We welcome men and women, people of all races and ethnicities, young and old, gay and straight. We welcome rich and poor, searchers and seekers, Catholics and people of other religious traditions. We are gifted by your presence.

New members will receive an invitation to attend a New Member Dinner with Father Tom Hurley. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet other new members and some Old St. Pat’s staff, as well as receive information about many of the programs our church has to offer. This is a sit-down, catered dinner in the rectory, and reservations are required.
