2023 Parish Mission

IGNITE YOUR FAITH
3-Day Parish Mission
February 26-28, 2023 | 6:30 PM

We invite you to join us on February 26-28, 2023 for St. Patrick’s Parish Mission “Ignite Your Faith” with Fr. Ron Hoye. Fr. Hoye blends humor, story, and spiritual reflection in a 50-minute presentation that will take place in the church starting at TBD PM. 

This mission is for everyone; all ages, all stages! Those brand new in their Catholic faith and those that have been Catholic all their life. Each evening will conclude with a parish social complete with snacks, drinks, and conversation. We look forward to seeing you!


ABOUT FR. RON HOYE

Fr. Hoye grew up in a farming community in Ste. Genevieve, MO and was greatly influenced by his mom and dad whose lives were about helping and caring for others as a nurse and surgeon. Fr. Ron chose a similar path of service and was ordained a priest in the Congregation of the Mission of St. Vincent De Paul in 1991 at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church in Perryville, MO. Fr. Hoye holds a B.S. in Philosophy and two Master's Degrees—in Theology and Ethics. He has been heavily involved in youth activities and programs both domestically and internationally. He served on the National Board of the Religious Vocation Conference while involved in campus ministry at DePaul University in Chicago, where he also taught Business Ethics and World Religions. Currently, Fr. Hoye is director of Vincentian TeamWorks- a collaborative effort of Catholic Evangelization that includes the ministries of Catholic Home Study and Vincentian Parish Missions. He is a published author and travels extensively throughout the country leading parish missions and leadership renewal. Fr. Ron enjoys the outdoors where he is oftentimes seen running, hiking, kayaking, and biking.

You may have heard of Fr. Hoye through The God Minute, an online prayer community, including a small group of Catholic priests, nuns, and laypeople who start their day in prayer.

WHAT IS A PARISH MISSION?

A mission is a mini retreat designed for busy people; an opportunity to step back a bit, to slow down and simply reconnect our lives with God; a time of spiritual refreshment and invigoration. Something we all need!

WHO IS A MISSION FOR?

Mission is for everyone. It surprises a lot of people how much younger people really enjoy mission. The mission experience is one of story, laughter, reflection, and prayer. It is designed to draw us into a deeper relationship with Jesus-- and have a good time doing it. It is an excellent opportunity for anyone struggling in or questioning their faith. For anyone who desires a spiritual boost or spark- that’s just what a parish mission is all about!

HOW LONG IS IT?

Here’s the best part- it’s 50 minutes. We recognize that people are busy and so it won’t go on and on every evening. That is a promise. By the time you leave home for mission every evening to the time you get back- it will be under an hour. A time frame that accommodates even the busiest of schedules.

PARISH EVANGELIZATION

People who become inactive in the Church state that it was the invitation of someone they knew and respected that greatly influenced them to become active again. We encourage you to give a small gift to your family and friends by simply inviting them to come with you to the mission. If they decline, accept “no” graciously and don't take it personally. A “no thanks” won’t negatively impact your life, but a “yes” could change someone’s life forever. So press through any fears of rejection and keep inviting! You’ll never get a “yes” if you never ask.
