See You Every Tuesday! (except during Easter Break Week) See the Youth Ministry Calendar on the main page for all dates.

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY continues every Tuesday school is in session* with Donuts and muffins as well as various Traditional Breakfasts planned by Mr. Zak. Parent Help Appreciated! (*except when there is a school Mass on Tuesday)

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAYS is a NEW Tradition started in 2014!  For 5th through 8th Grades!  Whether you attend St. Pat’s grade school, area public Middle Schools or are Home Schooled, you are invited!  Come for Mass and then stay as long as you are able for a light breakfast as we look at Scripture and the Saints in a new and exciting way!  We will dismiss everyone not later than 8:15 but if you have to leave early to get to school that’s ok. Stay for as long as you are able.  This will take place in DEMPSEY HALL at the Crane Road Church after Mass in the chapel.

Did you know that since TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY began in 2014, three other parishes have incorporated versions of it into their Youth Ministry programs. Don’t miss out on the fastest growing program in Youth Ministry!
