Patrick Kijowski will soon be serving as our part-time Youth Minister here at Most Blessed Sacrament Parish. Patrick has been a Toledo Youth Minister and musician for over 10 years. He has served on (16) Men’s and Women’s TEC retreats and at numerous area youth gatherings and YES retreats. A life-long Catholic, Patrick has always believed in fostering a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, no matter what your age, and has focused on helping teens understand the role of Jesus in their day to day life.
Patrick is a relatively new member of Most Blessed Sacrament Parish, and will soon be married here to his wonderful bride, Lauren Malicki, on May 18th! Patrick writes: “When I was in high school, my youth leader always reminded us of Paul’s words to Timothy (Timothy 4:12) – ‘Let no one think less of you because you are young.’ That verse has stayed with me all this time and the youth of today need to understand that they ARE today’s church. They have a role. They have a place. They are loved.”
In addition to previously serving as a licensed social worker, Patrick is currently a realtor with Key Realty, as well as operating a home support business with his fiancé, Lauren. Patrick will be conducting some “Meet and Greets” in the summer and start of the new school year in order to meet parishioners of all ages! Welcome Patrick!
