Good morning St. Patrick's Alumni, Family and Friends,

             We hope this message finds everyone well.  It is hard to believe that we are going on nine years that our church doors were closed.   What is amazing is how strong our St. Patrick's Family bonds have been.   A huge thank you goes out to so many people from our group for all their contribution. We have had a lot of losses since the closing of our church which has been so sad. Please let's take a minute to remember all our St. Patrick's Alumni who have passed away and the 36 Alumni listed below who have passed away since the closing of our church in 2010.  They are all deeply missed.

 

James F. Baker, Marie Davey, Diane Spinelli, Rev Brian Cronin, John Campbell, John Mahar, Joseph Stasack, Joseph Ienco, William Ahearn, Norine Murray, Joseph Connors, Helen Corrigan Wright, Roger Ayotte, Carol Purtell, Joyce Gordon, Dolores Finn, Michael Horan, Sister Elizabeth Ann OBryan, Margaret Hayner, Marvin Hayner. SR., Thomas J Cooley, Sister Carol Anne Porter, Veronica (Ronnie) Norton, Robert Murray, Francis Murray, Dorothy Bartoski.   Robert (Bob) Zellweg, James A Risley, Glenn Liney, William Wells, Robert Gordon, Thomas M. Riley, Patricia Simmons Mitola, Janet Wells, Robert Elden, and John P Norton.

 

First off we would like to thank all the Alumni and Family and Friends. If it was not for you and attendance to all our events we would not be as strong as we are.  A special thank you goes out to Father David Jones he really is an inspiration to us all.  Special thank you to Anthony Perniciaro from McLoughlin & Mason if not for his generosity for letting us use his facility to hold our mass every day and every special event we could not have stayed so strong.  To all the committee members that make all the arrangements, and for all the mass services thank you.   

 

The committee met, and we are finalizing the 2019 calendar. It will be up shortly on the website http://www.stpatrickstroy.org/.  As our group gets smaller and smaller it is harder and harder to get venues that we can afford last year we were able to secure the Lansingburgh Boys and Girls Club. We would like to thank Michael Manupella and his staff for their continued support.    This year our St. Patrick's Day Celebration will again take place at the Lansingburgh Boys & Girls Club, 501 4th Ave, Troy NY 12182. It will be a mass followed by a bring your own Irish dish to share. The Alumni will be providing the Corn Beef, Potatoes, Cabbage, Carrots, Beverages, Paper Products.  We will still need to have RSVP only to make sure we have enough Corn Beef, beverages, and supplies.  The flyer for the event is also attached to this email.    The facility is handicap accessible.  We are hoping for a great turn out and have a lot of fun.  We will have 3 other major events this year.  Our Easter Celebration, Summer Picnic, and Christmas Party.  Please check the website for details on the events. 

             Just a reminder we be having a Mass Service for Ash Wednesday please see details below. God Bless and Have an Enjoyable Day!

Dear Alumni members of St. Patrick’s, Family and Friends,

 

Let us pray for Mike Horan who died this morning.  I will say Mass for him at Mass tomorrow, Wednesday and also on Thursday. He was very good to us when we began to say Mass after July 1, 2010 at his Riverview Funeral Home. He was a great help at St. Patrick's.

 

Sincerely,

Rev, David J Jones, M.M.

Last week I took bags of cloths etc. for Joseph House. The staff of Joseph house were very happy to receive so many goods for the members at Joseph house. I informed the people at Joseph House that the various goods we gave them were from former members of St. Patrick’s Troy. They were very pleased. Thank you all who have given much for the people at Joseph house.

I  would like to send out a special thank you to all of the St. Patrick Alumni Family that help support the tuition assistance for one child to  attend St. Augustine School who would not have been able to afford it.   Thank you to Lisa Dillon for logistics of collecting and delivering!

St. Augustine School principal Patricia Bolmer and Deborah A Webster sent a thank you note.    Click HERE to see the Thank you Note

Fr.  Dave
