Whether you’ve lived in the area for a while or if you are new to Bloomington/Normal, we would like to welcome you to our parish family. We hope that you and your family have experienced a warm welcome from all of us here at St. Patrick!

We would love to meet you, show you around, fill you in on what’s going on, and even help you become registered members of the parish.

Please take a moment to introduce yourself to us by emailing Introduce your family to us and let us know what brings you to St. Patrick. If there’s anything we can do for you, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Interested in meeting other young families? 

So are we!

It can be difficult sometimes to meet others in the same state of life -- but SO important! At St. Patrick, we desire to create opportunities for young families to engage in community, to cultivate life-giving friendships, and to seek out mutual support.

Joining a small group is something we would invite you to consider. Small groups are communities of 6-12 members that meet regularly for discussion of faith and life. These groups are centered on Scripture and our relationship with God, and they are a perfect place to meet other young couples.

If you are interested in a small group or if you’d just like to meet other families, email Ryan and introduce your family to us. We look forward to meeting you soon!
