Ministries

Eucharistic Ministers

As an extraordinary minister of holy communion, you will be asked to serve approximately 1-2 times monthly at our regularly scheduled week-end masses (mass preferences will be considered).

Candidates must have made 1st Holy Communion, have been confirmed and, if married, in a valid catholic marriage. They must also be a registered member of St. Patrick Parish and attend a diocese training session with the approval of the pastor.

For more information, contact Ruthann Besterci at 760-931-9003.

Music Ministry 

The Music Ministry at St. Patrick Catholic Community invites singers and instrumentalists to share their gifts and become an integral part of our liturgies.

Our Adult Choirs sing at the Sunday 9:00 and 11:00 am Masses both traditional and contemporary music. Our teen band sings “praise” music Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m., while our Saturday Vigil Mass at 4:30 p.m. is in the “Glory & Praise” tradition. Our Sunday morning 7:30 a.m. Mass has meditative instrumental music and hymns, and once a month our Parish Children’s Choir sings at the Sunday 9:00 a.m. liturgy.

Our Spanish Masses have music ensembles alternating at the 7:00 p.m. Vigil Mass, and the Parish “Coro” sings at the traditional 1:00 p.m. Sunday Mass.

We invite you to become part of this dynamic ministry and praise God in song – traditional, contemporary, himnos, canciones, music for teens & children! Please contact me at the email and/or telephone listed below.

Kitchen Ministry

Each week a volunteer inspects the kitchen in the Parish Center to ensure that the stove, doors, cabinets, refrigerator, and countertops, etc., are clean and ready for use. Supplies (cups, plates, coffee, condiments, and utensils) are checked and replaced as required. The Kitchen Ministry can always use additional volunteers! Expect to spend about two hours a month.

Adult Education

The Adult Education at St. Patrick Catholic Community offers classes, bible studies, retreats, parish missions and other presentations to promote the knowledge of faith and spiritual growth. It invites young adults and adults to gather as a community and share experiences of faith and how to live our lives as Catholic Christians in the world today. Foremost, it strives to inspire all to live as disciples of Christ by participation in the liturgy of the Church, through an active prayer life and service to community. Please check the weekly bulletin often for upcoming Adult Education programs.
