Let me introduce myself, I am Father Jude Shayo, the priest at St. Patrick's Catholic Church at Moody Air Force Base.  We welcome all military affiliated members to join us at Mass.  If you are new to our community, please introduce yourself to me this Sunday.

Our faith community is dedicated to creating an environment of fellowship through worship, outreach and services.  I encourage you to become active in our ministries.  Becoming part of our ministry is a great way to get to know people while becoming an active member of the church.  In addition, service gives you a
creative outlet to living your baptismal commitments, helps the parish in fulfilling its pastoral obligations, and gives us the opportunity to get to know you personally.

Prayer Requests 

Do you have a prayer request?  Then visit our prayer request page and let us and others pray with you.

Why do we pray?  We pray to be in communion with God; to raise our mind and heart to God in thanksgiving; to praise His glory and to request good things from God.

Can't we simply pray for ourselves?  The answer is "Yes" and you're encourage to do so but James 5:16 states we must also pray for one another and that the fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful.  With this in mind, we want to join you in your prayers.

Father Jude Celebrates 28 Years as a Priest


All men who, through the Sacrament of Holy Orders, have become priests participate in Christ's priesthood; they act in persona Christi Capitis, in the person of Christ, the Head of His Body, the Church.




The ministerial orders of the Catholic Church are those of bishop, presbyter, and deacon.  A Catholic priest fulfills the role of mediator between God and man.





Father Jude celebrates 28 years of priesthood. 

The men and women of St Patrick's Catholic Community thank you.  We thank you for your insight, direction and for being our intermediary

  Parish Council

The Parish Council Meeting was rescheduled to 13 Sep 18 at 5:00 pm at the chapel.  We will project any events we want to have during the year.  All parishioners are welcome and we value your input.

"Recognizing the needs of others is a sign of genuine conversion, which only happens when the heart is ready to be changed by Jesus.  Conversion and forgiveness of sins are two aspects of mercy.  How often do we tell ourselves:  ' must change; I cannot continue like this.  On this path, my life will not bear fruit.  It will be a useless life, and I will not be happy.'  Jesus invites us to change our lives.  On this path,, my life will not bear fruit.  It will be a useless life, and I will not be happy.'  Jesus invites us to change our lives.  He, with the Holy Spirit, plants in us the seed of this restlessness in order to change our lives a little bit for the better.  Just open the door, and he will do all the rest.  He does everything.  But open wide the door, so that he can heal us and carry us forward.  Jesus won people over with kindness, with love."

If you are new to the community, please introduce yourself to Father Shayo.  We invite you and your family to become active members of our faith community and want you to feel at home and experience the life of the Spirit in this parish.

We ask that you register your family with the Chapel.  Registration forms are located on the wall by the bulletin board in the foyer or you can download the form from this site.  Once completed, give your form to Father Shayo; an usher; or Ms Christine Johnson, our Religious Education Coordinator.
