My Dear Friends,
As pastor of this wonderful parish I would like to welcome you to our website. St. Patrick Parish is located in the heart of the grain belt - an area that helps feed the world and through our harvest it helps produce hundreds upon hundreds of products we use every day. We are a community of farmers, retirees, working people, simple folks and young families. We serve our city in many and varied ways extending help to the sick, shut-ins, the poor, the hungry and others. We take delight that God has enabled us to serve so many.
We are closely related to and embrace our neighboring parishes of St. Flannen, Harmon and St. Mary, Walton; as they do us. Among the tri-parishes the fatih runs deep being built on the blood, sweat and tears of our founding ancestors. Our area has changed drastically as technology has enabled our farmers to work more and more land more efficiently. Unfortunately, one of the by products has been the decline of many smaller family farms. But we are a tough people in Amboy, Harmon and Walton.
You will find us to be warm and welcoming communities. If you are new to one of our parishes, welcome. Please say hello and register so we can proudly call you one of our own!
Father Tom Bales
