Five Minutes on Monday began in September 2001 as the weekly newsletter for the youth ministry office of the Diocese of Wilmington, where Patrick served as the director. In May 2008, Patrick began offering weekly reflections under the theme “Standing Still.”
Patrick left the Diocese of Wilmington in late 2015 and relocated to the Diocese of Bridgeport. After a brief hiatus, Five Minutes on Monday resumed and is currently received by several hundred subscribers each week.
