ABOUT PARISH/ SCHOOL/ ORGANIZATION

St. Patrick is located in Scottsdale, Arizona. We are a Roman Catholic community that challenges itself to be a family of hospitality and life-giving worship, and one that hears the Word of God and takes that Word out into the world.

St. Patrick is a parish that is dedicated to the vision of the Second Vatican Council. There are five foundational areas emphasized in all we do at St. Patrick:

  • Good Liturgy Builds Faith – We are committed to celebrating the sacraments well. The Second Vatican Council documents on liturgy clearly speak of full, active and conscience participation in the liturgy, not being spectators. Gathering for liturgy is the way we bring Christ to one another through our singing, praying and worshipping.
  • Hospitality – This important gift may mean different things to different people. We are challenged by our faith in Christ to acknowledge the presence of the person, to be inclusive in our attitude toward every person, and to be aware of the dignity of every person.
  • Stewardship of Giving, Praying and Serving – A way of life that centers on generosity at all times of our lives. For Christians we realize that what we have does not belong to us, but to God. Eighty times in the New Testament the word “steward” or “stewardship” is used and we are reminded to be careful stewards of all that we have been given. This way of life needs to be the core of what we claim to be. Over 102 ministries are within the parish influence; what one does daily in the world is also recognized as ministry in the name of the community.
  • Social Justice – Throughout the Bible, beginning with the Prophets who said caring for others is a command, Jesus constantly brought in the lowly and excluded and we are called to this “right” justice. Justice (Hesed in Hebrew) amply means being in “right” relationship with God and one another. With God as the priority in our lives, concern for our neighbor’s lack of basic needs is our mission. However, our response should not simply be one of charity. We must reach out in relationship with those we assist, which can then lead to systemic change and “right” justice. Our parish commits both energy and resources to bring about justice in response to what the church teaches and the Gospel calls us to. We have a full time staff member to lead the parish in this important teaching.
  • Formation – “There is nothing more dangerous than a Catholic who knows their faith.” This is what I tell parishioners. From the smallest child, elementary aged, middle school, high school and adults, we are to be formed and shaped in the image of Jesus Christ. Formation is to be first and foremost the transformation of one’s heart and mind to know Jesus Christ and live in that relationship. It is through this journey we can learn the doctrine of our Catholic faith. To know Jesus Christ first is the way that a Catholic becomes a dangerous person, because it will invite others to change their hearts.
