"Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours.

Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world.
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good.
Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”        - Saint Teresa of Avila

We, the Saint Patrick’s Parish Pastoral Council, are called to serve our parish by assisting the pastor in promoting the mission of the parish, the diocesan Church and the universal Church –

  1.  To proclaim the Gospel
  2.  To serve needs of our parish
  3.  To promote and communicate our common vision and mission
  4.  To advocate for the poor and the powerless
  5.  And to extend our Christian commitment to the communities around us.

The Church is composed of people like me. I help make it what it is. It will be friendly, if I am.
Its pews will be filled with people, if I help fill them. It will do great work, if I work.
It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am generous giver.
It will bring new and other people into worship and fellowship, if I invite them.
With the help of God, I dedicate myself to the task of being all the things
that I want the Church of Jesus to be.
