Father Robert Hart,  Pastor, ext. 1563
 
bhart@churchofstpatrick.com

I grew up in the Chicago area, the youngest of three children. I attended Fenwick High School in Oak Park, Ill and St. Thomas College here in St. Paul, before spending almost 23 years working for Prudential Insurance Company, in computer programming and facilities management. Then God decided He had other plans for me. I was ordained in 2000, at the age of 51 and spent the first two years of priesthood at the Cathedral. My second and only other assignment was my eight years at Transfiguration. I enjoy priesthood immensely and, in the words of Arch. Flynn, “If I had a hundred lives to live, I would live them all as a priest.”

 

Deacon John Vomastek,  Deacon

 jvomastek@churchofstpatrick.com

I was ordained to the diaconate in September of 2010. Saint Patrick is my first assignment as a deacon and I am very happy to be here. To be a deacon is to be a servant. Being new here, I am starting my service ministry with liturgical duties at Mass, along with baptisms, weddings and funerals. I also have a second ministry at the Woodbury Health Care Center, providing a communion service there. I am married and have six children and one grandchild.  The people of Saint Patrick have made me feel so welcome and I am grateful for that.
