Eucharistic Circle

Our Purpose

St. Patrick Church's stated mission is to be "a welcoming Eucharistic community".

The Eucharistic Circle has one goal and only one goal: to bring St. Patrick parishioners—and others—into a greater understanding and appreciation of the Holy Eucharist and the impact IT must have in our lives

 

We want to bring our Eucharistic King deeper into all our lives: *by offering as much as we can *liturgical prayer—Holy Hours, special Masses at St. Patrick—as well as alerting you to  other Eucharistic services being held in surrounding parishes... *by publishing articles on Eucharist in our parish bulletin, on our website and other social media... *by  offering a variety of resources including recommendations re conferences, speakers and websites and printed material that foster a greater understanding, appreciation and devotion to the Eucharist.

 

“For the liturgy, "through which the work of our redemption is accomplished," most of all in the divine sacrifice of the Eucharist, is the outstanding means whereby the faithful may express in their lives, and manifest to others, the mystery of Christ and the real nature of the true Church.” (CONSTITUTION ON THE SACRED LITURGY (SC 2)        

Our Profile

To be a member of the Eucharistic Circle is to be committed to a deep Eucharistic prayer life expressed by reverent participation at Sunday Eucharistic Liturgy (Mass), and when possible, daily Mass ... by participating in Eucharistic Circle liturgies such as Holy Hour and Benediction ... by private visits to the Blessed Sacrament when possible ... by taking advantage of  sources related to the Holy Eucharist: conferences, lectures, print or electronic media. These would be visible expressions of keeping that commitment alive and growing.

To be a member of the Eucharistic Circle is to share—where and when appropriate—your  love of Holy Eucharist with those around you ... to pray for a deeper understanding—and active promotion of—the Eucharist by all clergy ... to pray for those who neglect the Holy Eucharist, who desert the Holy Eucharist, or who distort and desecrate the Holy Eucharist. 

Upcoming Activities

During this time of pandemic isolation when we can't receive our Lord, we offer the following SPIRITUAL COMMUNION OF PRAYER.

Spiritual Communion Prayer

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen. (St. Alphonsus Liguori)
