Mission Statement
Offer the opportunity for all parishioners to have a personal conversation with Christ present in the Blessed Sacrament.  Help St. Patrick’s parishioners discover the great gift of the Eucharist such that graces from Eucharistic Adoration will inure to our community of faith in the form of increases in Mass attendance, reception of the sacraments, and spiritual “sensitivity”.  Enrich the life of parishioners resulting in increased desire and courage to evangelize others and to demonstrate great generosity in gifts of time, talent, and treasure for the building up of the Kingdom of God.

What is Exposition? - The Eucharist is exposed in the sacred vessel of the monstrance upon the Altar of St. Patrick's for Adoration.

Time - Second Tuesday of every month either 8:00 am Tuesday until 7:15 am Wednesday or 8:00 am - 8:00 pm Tuesday during winter months.  All conclude with Benediction.

Someone must always be present during Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.  For this reason, please contact Francesca or Jean to sign up for your committed hour.  More than one person or couple can participate at the same time.  Therefore, it is not essential that everyone sign up.  We invite anyone to come to adore Our Lord in the Eucharist for a short time or longer.
