Welcome to St. Patrick's Parish  (Monson)

Home of the St. Peregrine and Miraculous Medal Novenas

And St. Christopher's Parish  (Brimfield)

 

Mission

Though separate and distinct, we are Roman Catholic Communities that show our faith through love, forgiveness, healing, and compassion as taught by our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Our willingness to share time and talent is what makes us truly rich.  We strive to grow in our daily commitment to become better members of God's family.  Called and led by the Spirit, we seek to know and celebrate Jesus through Word, Sacrament, and Service.  It is our Mission and hope that we will be humble in our endeavors, and that our compassion will include all who are in need.  We welcome all who attend our Eucharistic celebrations, all visitors, all new friends and hope that you will favor one of our parishes with your prayer, your presence, your talents.
