Good Morning St. Patrick’s Alumni Family and Friends, It has been a while since we reached out to everyone. We are now going into July which is almost 5 months since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic and we are sure everyone is tired of hearing about it and just want things to return to normal.   St. Patrick’s Alumni Friends and Family have been hit hard in the last few months.   We have lost some Alumni; we have not been able to share in our faith together at many events that were very important to us all.  It has been very difficult times. 


As we promised we continued to monitor the situation and we said we would update you on whether our not we could celebrate our annual picnic July 12th.  There were many factors that we had to consider in whether we would be able to have the picnic.  One main factor is if the State allows gatherings of more than 25 people.  The other factor was if the venue opens for business with gatherings the most important factor is the health or safety of our Alumni.  A decision has been made regarding the annual picnic that is schedule for July 12th, 2020.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold the annual picnic this year.   We unfortunately will not have any services until our November Thanksgiving Mass service.  If situation changes and we are able to come back before November, we will certainly keep everyone posted.   


We will continue to keep everyone updated on the situation as things unfold, so please make sure to check for updates VIA email, website , facebook pages, Community of St. Patrick's Church of Troy, NY and/or The Community of St. Patrick's Troy,

New York.   


Please everyone have a safe and healthy summer.

God Bless,

Father David Jones, and The St. Patrick Alumni Committee
