The annual Wreaths Across America ceremony will be celebrated at the Shrine of St. Patrick Cemetery on December 18th at 11:00AM.   The ceremony is one of the most moving and celebrated for our veterans during the Christmas Season.  If you want to sponsor a Wreath for a relative or spouse, or make a donation to purchase Wreaths, please forward your $15.00 check made out to Wreaths Across America and mail  to Wreaths Across America, P.O. Box 12, St. Patrick, Mo. 63466.  Please note the specific grave request with the donation.    If you have a relative who is not buried in the St. Patrick Cemetery, you can still request a Wreath and pick it up on December 18th in St. Patrick so you can personally take to your cemetery for placement.   Also, this year the parishioners of the Shrine of St. Patrick will be hosting a Soup and Sandwich Lunch immediately following the Wreath placement Ceremony and hope everyone will join us for this special fellowship luncheon.  Please see the announcement on the St. Patrick Facebook page for additional information.

Edd and Marcia Hardin celebrated their 41st Wedding Anniversary and Marcia’s Birthday (not saying how many) on September 2nd at the Riverside Restaurant in Hannibal, hosted by their daughter and son-in-law, Leslie and Corey Moon.

Congratulations to Jordan and Savannah Logsdon and family on moving back to their farm and into their new home!  The original house on the farm was moved south of St. Patrick at the west entrance of the Lake of the Oaks and has already been sold!

Steve and Kristen Daughtry and family have sold their place (Lucille Danker home) and moved this week to their new home on Route Y, just south of Kahoka. 

We really enjoyed having a lot of family members visiting for the holiday weekend.  Fred Daughtry and Mary Ann Giandonato from Lakeland, Fl. came for a fun filled visit.  Everyone enjoyed dinner Friday evening at Mark and Deanne Whiston’s, and attended the Twisted Cat – Catfishing Tournament and weigh-in on Saturday evening followed by dinner out.  On Sunday morning, we all done a river cruise on Mark and Deann’s boat to the Warsaw Brewery for lunch and Monday was spent fishing at the Lake of the Oaks. Danny and I have just about talked ourselves into fishing in the Catfishing Tournament next year but we really need to practice more!

Curtis and Jenny Kirchner, Carol and Kevin Hinkebein from O’Fallon, Mo.  and Craig Kirchner and Adele of Atlanta, Ga., were all visiting this week at the Lake of the Oaks.

Kevin Flood is doing well recovering from knee surgery.  Donna said one of them is starting to go stir crazy – not sure which one though!

The Shrine of St. Patrick has been approved for a weekend mass starting on September 4.  Mass will be held every Saturday at 7:00pm and everyone is welcome in celebrating the return of weekend mass service to St. Patrick.
