METANOIA - and believe in the Gospel. In the Gospel of Mark, the first words of Jesus are an invitation to metanoia, to repent, to change, to be converted. This series is beautifully filmed on location in the Holy Land, highlighting sacred places such as the Sea of Galilee, the River Jordan, the desert of Temptations, and many of the holy sites in Jerusalem.
Each of the 10 episodes explores areas of our life where conversion is so often necessary. Metanoia will examine topics such as who is Jesus, what must we do to inherit eternal life, and many other significant matters of faith. With preaching from Fr. Dave Pivonka, as well as personal testimonies from men and women, young and old, religious and lay, their stories will inspire you to seek to encounter Jesus and the new life he is constantly inviting us to. Metanoia is a production of The Ministry of the Wild Goose and 4PM Media in association with Franciscan University of Steubenville and the Franciscan Friars TOR Province of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.

A Message from Fr. Brian
Hello St. Patrick family!
All of us on the parish staff have been working and praying on how to help all of us reengage, reignite, … REVIVE our faith and how we live it.
Our parish mission statement, “Forming Disciples, Leading all to Christ”, gives us a purpose and a responsibility to follow Jesus’ command, “Go out to all the nations, baptizing in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” We are called to be missionary disciples! The question we have to ask ourselves is, “Do we consider ourselves disciples - ready and prepared to share the Good News?”
Studies show that most of the people in the pews do not feel qualified or ready to do this. That’s where the first part of our mission statement comes into play – Forming Disciples.
Becoming a true disciple does not just happen! It takes effort. It takes passion! It’s what we hear in the Gospel – “If you would be my disciple, you must take up your cross and follow me!” We each have to realize that we can always grow in our relationship with Jesus. We need to be formed by Him! This process takes study, openness, and most of all, prayer!
Keeping this in mind, we have come up with a plan on how we can all grow in our faith, how we can be REVIVED to live our mission.
On Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm – we will be meeting to grow as disciples. The overall program is called REVIVE! Every Thursday will have a program that is open to all. We would love to have you for each and every Thursday – whether in-person or watching online, but each one is designed to be stand-alone.
Come and join us for REVIVE Thursdays! Let us help each other and form each other to be true missionary disciples!
