Welcome Weekend

Enjoy the best
of your life

How often do we think about doing something for ourselves spiritually to refocus our priorities and lives?

That is exactly why St. Patrick Catholic Church offers the Welcome Weekend (formerly known as Christ Renews His Parish or CRHP).

A weekend focused on personal renewal and ultimately, renewal as a spiritual community.
