Welcome from the Pastor

Thanks for your e-visit to St. Pat’s.  We invite you to come in person too.  (That’s what it’s all about for Catholics, since God came in (the) person of Jesus to save us all.)  Now we celebrate that salvation in our parish every day and try to live as Jesus Christ lived:

We worship with lively and solemn daily and Sunday liturgies, thanks to many liturgical ministers.  We serve in many ways from our parish food pantry and social concerns (including assisting a local pregnancy resource center) to collections for needs around the world.  And we also teach with a Catholic grade school and a campus ministry to Rolla Miners.

Again, we await your visit to Rolla, “the Middle of Everywhere” and to St. Pat’s where we hope Christ is “the Center of Everyone.”

Rev. David J. Veit, pastor
