                 St. Patrick’s, a warm, welcoming Roman Catholic Parish located in South Hadley, Ma
                           was founded in 1867 as a mission church of St. Jerome’s in Holyoke.
               St. Patrick’s is a place where all generations can practice our faith, receive the sacraments
                                           and be part of a caring parish family.
           We are called to proclaim the Kingdom of God through the changes and challenges of our times
                                  as we link service, community and evangelization.
                                             We strive to live out our mission through:
                                                       • Prayer and Liturgy
