Message From The Pastor
Dear St. Paul Parishioners,
We read in the letter of St. Paul to the Romans (5:5): “Hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.” One of the greatest qualities that we possess here at St. Paul is a confident hope. We have been inspired by our unique history of being the oldest parish in Johnson County. And we are sure of a great future as we work together to continue the sacred mission we inherited from our forefathers in Olathe. It is in this confident hope, and through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, that I write this letter encouraging everyone to participate in the St. Paul Capital Campaign. I am very pleased with all of the many parishioners who have served on the capital campaign team here at St. Paul. Their effort, vision and commitment have been inspirational. They chose the campaign theme: Founded on Faith, Continuing our Journey. This theme truly reflects our special history and our hope for a great future! We are the beneficiaries of the vision and commitment of those who have gone before us in the faith. Now it is our turn to step up and provide for the future of the parish and the sacred mission of the Church. We are fortunate to have this challenge. Our parish community is growing. We want to provide for our future parishioners as well as serve our current members. Our new parish campus will provide for the needs of all. I ask you to join me with a pledge commitment to this capital campaign and to this vision for the future of St. Paul Parish. Please read your campaign packet to see the latest details. Please spend time in prayer with your family and discuss with them how you can make a sacrificial gift over the next three years. I invite you to bring your pledge card to Mass on Commitment Weekend, November 21 and 22. The success of this campaign will require the participation of each of our parish families. Acting together, as the Body of Christ, we can build a new parish campus and secure the future of the sacred mission of the Catholic Church in Olathe.
Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Michael Hermes
Pastor - St. Paul
