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.

  RosaryThe month of October each year is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. This is primarily due to the fact that the liturgical feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated annually on October 7th.

"Among all the devotions approved by the church none has been so favored by so many miracles as the devotion of the Most Holy Rosary" (Pope Pius IX)

 

"Say the Rosary every day to obtain peace for the word" (Our Lady of Fatima)

 

"There is no surer means of calling down God's blessings upon the family ... than the daily recitation of the Rosary" (Pope Pius XII)

 

"We do not hesitate to affirm again publicly that we put great confidence in the Holy Rosary for the healing of evils of our times" (Pope Pius XII)

 

"No one can lie continually is sin and continue to say the Rosary; either they will give up sin or they will give up the Rosary" (Bishop High Doyle)

 

"The Rosary is a magnificent and universal prayer for the needs of the Church, the nations and the entire world" (Pope John XXII)

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.

"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.
