On a Mission with Matt Maher and Fr. Don Calloway, MIC


St. Patrick’s Faith Event Ministry is an evangelization movement of St. Patrick’s Parish in Merced, California, the Diocese of Fresno. The mission of St. Patrick’s Faith Event Ministry is to plan, promote, and host dynamic Christian speakers, artists, and events for our parish and our community.

Our goal, in the spirit of the New Evangelization of St. John Paul II, is to awaken and unite our community, to nurture individual hearts, and to build up, inspire and spiritually strengthen each family – the domestic church – so that we may be living witnesses, through our vibrant faith, of the love of Christ and the richness of our faith in our everyday life.

  1. Thank you for this information. I attend St. Anthony’s in Atwater and look forward to attending St. Patrick’s events! Thank you.

    • Thank you, Monica! Spread the good news! I’m hoping that the church is full to hear Fr. Calloway’s testimony and I’m confident Matt Maher will sell out quickly! Your prayers and encouragement are very appreciated!

      • I will. There should be flyers sent to the parish, im sure others would be interested. It would be awesome to have a full house that day. I went to adoration when Tori Harris was there and the church was pretty empty

        • Thanks again. Monica! In terms of capacity, one could say that 300 people doesn’t look like the same as 1,200 that the church can hold. But I was very encouraged and I trust that God did much with the prayers of those in attendance with Tori Harris and the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament for an increase in the sanctity of life! God bless you!

          • Yes you’re right. I didn’t mean anything negative. It was an awesome event and i much apprecite all things that havevto do with an increase in Faith and life. Thank you for your tine and hospitality at St. Patrick’s!!
