Call the parish office at 636-332-9225. If the parish office is closed, and it is an emergency, call the parish office and listen carefully for the prompt that will tell you how to access the priests or a priest who is on call for them, during the evening, night, and weekend.
Because a priest cannot always be available, you are urged to notify the parish whenever anyone is seriously ill. Every effort will be made to assure that the sacraments are available before the situation become critical.

Eucharist for Homebound, Sick, and Care Centers
Many of our parishioners are unable to attend Mass regularly due to illnesses and other circumstances. Arrangements can be made for someone from the parish to visit on a weekly basis to bring the Eucharist to these individuals. Please call the rectory office for the Eucharist to be brought to a homebound or sick person, or for a hospital visit.
St. Patrick also services the spiritual needs of the two care facilities within our parish bounds - Parklane Care and Rehabilitation Center and Twin Oaks Assisted Living. Mass is celebrated once a month with residents at these locations in addition to Extraordinary Ministers of Communion who come in the other weeks. In addition to these facilities, St. Patrick can arrange for communion to be given at other institutions.
Children are prepared for Confirmation in eighth grade, at either St. Patrick School or our Parish School of Religion (PSR). Adults and high school students who have not received the Sacrament of Confirmation should call the church office and speak to one of the priests.

To have Mass celebrated for either a deceased family member or a friend or for a special intention at St. Patrick, please stop by the parish office. Each diocesan bishop sets a suggested offering for a Mass intention, and here in the Archdiocese of St. Louis it is $10. We can also provide cards to send people to inform them of the Mass. A card and the Mass or Masses said, can be a great comfort to a grieving family.
The whole liturgical life of the Church revolves around the Eucharistic sacrifice and the sacraments. There are seven sacraments in the Church: Baptism, Confirmation or Chrismation, Eucharist, Penance, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, and Matrimony.
Sacraments are "powers that come forth" from the Body of Christ, which is ever-living and life-giving. They are actions of the Holy Spirit at work in his Body, the Church. They are "the masterworks of God" in the new and everlasting covenant.
