Christ in the City
This program has been moved to Immaculate Conception Parish
All Young Adults (21-late 30s) are invited to Christ in the City, a monthly Young Adult Mass at Immaculate Conception Parish on the 2nd Thursday of each month! Mass begins at 7:00pm, with Adoration and Confession offered before Mass at 6:00pm and fellowship at a local bar to follow! Immaculate Conception is located at the corner of 8th & N Streets, NW (Mt. Vernon Square Metro). For more information, visit Christ in the City or email

To enrich the Liturgy of the Word, a dedicated group of individuals has the responsibility of reading the Scripture for Sunday and weekday Masses. For more information, contact the rectory (202-347-2713).

Ushers are responsible for greeting visitors, taking up the collection, coordinating the offertory procession, and distributing bulletins. Their most important role is the hospitality they show to all who attend St. Patrick's. To volunteer, contact the rectory (202-347-2713).

Food Collection
St. Patrick's collects non-perishable food items for those in need on the second Sunday of the month. The non-perishable food donations are placed at Our Lady’s altar. Food donations are also collected the Friday before the second Sunday.

Poor Box
Every month a specific charity that helps the disadvantaged and needy receives St. Patrick’s Poor Box monthly contributions.

Annual Christmas Toy Drive
At Christmas time a collection of toys are given to needy children in Washington, D.C. During the Christmas season, parishioners, friends, and visitors bring an unwrapped toy or made a donation for a gift to be given to an infant, girl, or boy, up to age 18.
