Gift Saint Patrick School

Saint Patrick School has grown tremendously over the last 27 years. Today, the School remains an intimate community that offers incredible opportunities.

Your support is the foundation for the continued excellence of our school. Every gift we receive makes a huge difference.  A difference not only for the school but for the students enrolled.

We value our ability to maintain our size, but with the benefits of a small school, we are faced with increasing challenges.  Please continue to support Saint Patrick School.

Please write a note on your check that this gift is a ‘donation’ in order for the School to send you a tax receipt.  We are extremely thankful for any contributions made.
Saint Patrick School is a non-profit organization.

JAMES Duffy

Saint Patrick School's Guardian Angel

“Where there is charity and wisdom, There is neither fear nor ignorance.”  St. Francis of Assisi

James Duffy, a U.S. Army Veteran and Guardian Angel to many local families and organizations leads by example.  Every morning Mr Duffy holds the door to the school open and greets each and every child by name. He remembers their birthdays and celebrates when they lose a tooth. He brings good old Irish humor and a smile. He notices, cares and shares kindness to all. Mr Duffy collects for the Guardian Angel Charity and physically gathers and delivers what families in need, need most.  He does this quietly, and preferably without praise!  All who know Mr Duffy will agree, he truly is a gift from God. He is the Saint Patrick School Guardian Angel.  His willingness to help others is infectious and inspiring and reminds us all to do God's work.  Thank you Mr Duffy, we love you!
In addition to Mr Duffy's collections, to follow are a list of charities that the school actively supports: 
Toys for Tots, Fredericksburg SPCA, Thurman Brisbane Homeless Shelter, Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles - Priory of Our Lady of Ephesus in Gower, MO, The Paul Stefen Home, Micah Ministries and Mary's Shelter.
