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.
During the Advent and Christmas Seasons, St. Patrick's Parish Community welcomes you to celebrate this special time with us. Throughout Advent we reflect on the two-fold theme of the season: The Second Coming of Christ for which we prepare, and His coming in history by His birth at Bethlehem in Judah.
Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and the whole season of Christmas are rich in the celebration of the liturgy and the whole significance of the Incarnation of the Lord. Share the joy of the season with us here at St. Patrick in the tradition that has been celebrated here in Kennett Square for over 143 years. In fact, Christmas Day is the parish's anniversary since on that day in 1869 our parish was founded.
Have a Blessed Advent Season and Christmas Season with best wishes for the Christ Child's Blessing on you and your family.
- Father Victor F. Sharrett, Pastor

THE WORD AMONG US
With the beginning of ADVENT, please take a few minutes per day and use THE WORD AMONG US to grow closer to the Lord before Christmas. Spending just a few minutes reading this booklet will dramatically change your experience during Advent from one of commercialization to spiritual openness. Copies are provided by the parish and are located on the pillars in the back of church. Please pick one up for your family and start a new Christmas tradition.
THE GIVING TREE
The season of Advent sees the arrival here at St. Patrick’s of the "Giving Tree." Please take an "ornament" from the tree, buy the article written on the ornament and bring it UNWRAPPED to church no later than SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15.
Tape your ornament to your gift/gift certificate/donation and leave your gift under the tree. Place all gift certificate/donation in the gift box provided.
Christmas time can be hard when you have lost a loved one. In the vestibule, we have a selection of Christmas pamphlets to help you find comfort this Christmas season. Please help yourself.
