September 2, 2021

Dear parishioners and friends of St. Patrick in Joliet,


“God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.” (Psalm73:26)

I am happy to invite you to celebrate with our parish community the ruby jubilee of Deacon Paul Kolodziej.

After his Ordination, he was assigned to our parish. For the past forty years, he has been working with many pastors, other priests, deacons, and lay ministers. He dedicated a good amount of his time and talent to assist in our parish administration office and the pastoral care ministry. He was very good in teaching and guiding our lectors and Eucharist ministers. He was instrumental in starting the Food Pantry Ministry at St. Patrick.

Our senior deacon is still available whenever we need his wise advice, his liturgical skills, and his supportive collaboration.

Let’s join Deacon Paul and his family, at St Pat’s Church, to give thanks to God for his 40th anniversary of Ordination, on Sunday, September 26th, 2021, at 9:00 AM. A reception will follow in the Gym.

Magnificat Anima Mea Dominum!

(My soul magnifies the Lord!)


Rev. J. Rodolphe Arty, C.S.C



“Mi Roca, mi Dios, que es mío para siempre.” (Salmo 73:26)

Me complace invitarlos a celebrar con nuestra comunidad parroquial el jubileo rubí del Diacono Paul Kolodziej.

Después de su ordenación, fue asignado a nuestra parroquia.  Durante los últimos cuarenta años, ha estado trabajando con muchos párrocos, otros sacerdotes, diáconos y ministros laicos.  Dedico una gran cantidad de su tiempo y talento para ayudar en la oficina parroquial y el ministerio de cuidado pastoral.  Era muy bueno enseñando y guiando a nuestros lectores y ministros de la Eucaristía.  Jugo un papel decisivo en el inicio del Ministerio de Despensa de Comida en San Patricio.

Nuestro diacono mayor aun está disponible cuando necesitamos de sus sabios consejos, sus habilidades litúrgicas, y su colaboración de apoyo.

Unámonos al Diacono Paul y su familia, en la Iglesia de San Patricio, para dar gracias a Dios por su 40 aniversario de ordenación, el 26 de Septiembre 2021 a las 9 AM, seguido por una recepción en el gimnasio.

Magnificat Anima Mea Dominum!
