We are beginning to construct a new system of parish communication called “Flocknote.” We hope you have dialed the number 84576 and type ‘Pats” in the text box on your cell phone or will dial it and encourage other parishioners who are neighbors of yours to dial 84576 and type PATS in the text box of their phones.
It will be a process that will take a little time, but we hope to gather in most of the parish’s cell phone and/or email connections so that eventually we can communicate a message and/or parish information by just the touch of a button from the parish office.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is held every Monday beginning at 8:00 am concluding at 7:30 pm with Benediction.

Christmas Baskets for the Kennett Area Community Services Sugar Collection: Once again we will be collecting bags of sugar to help fill the Christmas Baskets for families in our area. We are committing to collect 550 bags of sugar. This should be an easy goal for our parish to achieve. The sugar bins will be in the vestibule of the church. Please help our parish to achieve this goal so we may help provide a brighter Christmas for families in our community!
Sugar Update - Goal: 550 bags, Collected: 60 bags. Please keep them coming!
Christmas Cards: Beautiful Christmas cards are for sale in the parish office. The individual designs are available in packages of 10 and variety packs of 10 are also available. The scenes are of St. Patrick manger represented as a close up of the Holy Family, as a larger crèche, the whole altar from the balcony, and the stained glass window of Mary and Child. Packages of 10 are $15.00. Money will benefit projects of the Ladies of St. Patrick which ultimately benefit St. Patrick Church.
At this time of year, our neighboring parochial schools, St Maximilian, West Chester, St. Cornelius, Chadds Ford, BVM, West Grove, and Sacred Heart, Oxford are all accepting new students. You are reminded if you are contemplating a move to one of these schools that St. Patrick’s parish office must be informed as part of the mechanism of registration. We encourage families registered in this parish to consider one of these Catholic parochial schools for their children.
Parents of the parish with children already in these schools are reminded that they need to inform St. Patrick's in writing of their decision to continue enrollment for the 2015-2016 school year. This has to do with the subsidy our parish pays the receiving school.
