Sundays: 8 AM (Rite I) and 10:15 AM (Rite II).
Wednesdays: 10:30 AM Healing Mass (Rite II)
Sunday services are at 8:00 and 10:15 am. During the week, there is a Healing Eucharist with Hands-on Prayer and Anointing at 10:30 am on Wednesdays. All our services are celebrations of the Holy Eucharist (this liturgy is also known as Holy Communion or Mass).
On Sunday mornings, the 8:00 am service includes hymns sung by the congregation. At 10:15, the Saint Patrick’s Choir accompanies the service during the academic year (September through June). On a typical Sunday the 8:00 service lasts approximately one hour and the 10:15 service approximately one hour and 15 minutes. The Wednesday Healing Service is intimate and informal and lasts approximately one hour.

The Arts at St. Pat's is a support guild of musicians and artists who offer their time and talents for the benefit of St. Patrick's arts program. Created to supplement our choir with vocal interns from California Lutheran University, the Arts at St. Pat's program has expanded to offer several concerts during the academic year, including a "Broadway Night" and several instrumental concerts which bring "first chair" musicians and artists together to share their gifts with the community.
