Happy birthday Deb – we think you are amazing!
You inspire us with your dedication to the people of our parish, and of St Pat’s. You are big-hearted, honest, and full of love for God – a truly authentic disciple.
The work of a Pastoral Associate is not always held up and admired, but it should be. Thank you Deb for all that you do and the way that you do it.
Our parish is abundantly blessed to have our current leadership team of Father Arsenio, Pastor emeritus Father John, Deacon Phil, Secretary Extraordinaire Paula, and Pastoral Associate Deb.
Strength and dignity are her clothing,
and she laughs at the time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household,
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her happy;
her husband too, and he praises her:
‘Many women have done excellently,
but you surpass them all.’
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Give her a share in the fruit of her hands,
and let her works praise her in the city gates.
