Catholic Church in Hudson wisconsin

About Saint Patrick Parish

Learn about our vibrant community


To joyfully proclaim, share, and celebrate the love and mercy of Jesus Christ through Word, Sacrament, prayer, and ministry.

Over 150 years ago, Saint Patrick Parish began with the aim to spread the love of God through the small yet growing community of Hudson. By the grace of God, we have grown to over 2,000 registered members. However, our work is only just beginning. Our faith community will continue to show the love of Christ to everyone we encounter and to live a life of missionary discipleship.

“To seek, love and bear witness to Jesus! This is your commitment; these are the instructions I leave you!” -St. John Paul II


Holy People

We are called through Baptism to be a Holy People, who are joyful and reverent in our celebration of the Eucharist. We live out the Gospel message as one Body in Christ, in unity with our Diocese and faithful to our universal Roman Catholic Church. We strive towards dignity, honor and forgiveness for all. We are commissioned and respond to the words of Christ: "Go out to the whole world; proclaim the Good News to all creation." (Mark 16:15)

Community of Catholic Christians

We are called through Baptism to be an authentic Community of Catholic Christians by being respectful, supportive, and life-giving. We aspire to be a vibrant and welcoming community, rooted in love and generosity of heart. We value the diversity of our faith family and benefit from everyone's spirituality and circumstances.

Mission and Ministry

We are called through Baptism to live the Mission and Ministry of Jesus Christ. As His disciples, we receive, nurture and share our Creator’s gifts with justice. At Saint Patrick Parish, we support one another and are emboldened by the Holy Spirit to carry on the redeeming work of our Lord and Savior. Under the guidance of our Bishop and Pastoral Leadership, we serve our parish, our greater Hudson community, and all God’s people, for His greater glory.

Christian Maturity

We are called through Baptism to continually grow in Christian Maturity. Our journey toward full Christian maturity is about an ongoing conversion and renewal. Our hearts and minds are open to God's call, wherever the Holy Spirit leads us. The calls of Holiness, Community, Mission and Ministry must become priorities in our individual, family, and community lives.


Father John

Years of experience in teaching the Word of God

Since being ordained in 1991, I've had the pleasure of serving many communities in the Superior Diocese. The Hudson community has been a wonderful place to minister and connect with parishioners who have a longing for a deeper relationship with Jesus. If we haven't met yet, I look forward to getting to know you and your family. God bless!

The Synod on Synodality is a three-year process (2021-2024) of listening and dialogue. Pope Francis invites the entire Church to reflect on a theme that is decisive for its life and mission: “It is precisely this path of synodality which God expects of the Church of the third millennium.” This journey, which follows in the wake of the Church’s “renewal” proposed by the Second Vatican Council, is both a gift and a task: by journeying together and reflecting together on the journey that has been made, the Church will be able to learn through Her experience which processes can help Her to live in communion, to achieve participation, to open Herself to mission.

Saint Patrick Parish participated in listening sessions as part of the Synod. Please read our parish synod report below for more details.
