On Thursday, February 7, Father Godfrey celebrated Mass with St. Patrick Catholic High School. Every week, the student body and staff come together in a sacred space to celebrate the Eucharist. This was the first time this year that Father Godfrey had come to the school, and the students enjoyed him very much.
The students’ families and alumni of St. Patrick are always welcome and even encouraged to join the school for Mass. Different students volunteer each week to participate in the Mass by bringing up the gifts, being a lector, or even by being an altar server. A different priest celebrates with the school every week, and this week Father Godfrey joined. The next Mass will be celebrated by Father Colten in celebration of St. Valentine’s Day on February 14.
Gabby Patino, a junior at St. Patrick commented, “I really enjoyed Father’s homily this week. This is my favorite part of the Mass, and I look forward to this every week at school. It is so nice to see so many come together in one place to practice our faith!”
