Message From The Pastor
Hello to everyone at St. Paul Catholic Church!
We started the month of September with an 8 a.m. Mass on Labor Day, giving thanks to God for our work and activity, and rededicating ourselves to give 100% “in all we do, in word or action, (that we) do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Col. 3:17).
The big news is that we have an official date for groundbreaking on our new property. The Groundbreaking Ceremony will be on Sunday, Oct. 8th at 6 p.m. with Archbishop Naumann. Olathe Mayor Michael Copeland will also be there to share his congratulations. We will have a spiritual bonfire, an All-Parish Rosary (English, Spanish, ASL), s'mores and treats for all, and music provided by the Coro de San Pablo and the Konza Swamp Band.
Just think of this, that we made it to breaking ground and starting construction on Phase I of our Parish Relocation in less than two years. That is really amazing. I thank everyone who has worked on the Capital Campaign and all the parishioners who have been so generous by making a pledge to the campaign. Thank you all very much!
But . . . we are not yet finished with the Capital Campaign. The total project goal is $9.1 million. We currently have $7.2 million pledged. We need all parish families who have not yet pledged to do so as soon as possible. With two hurricanes making landfall in the US just this month, the cost of building supplies and construction materials is skyrocketing. So the sooner the better for the success of our project. Please contact me with any questions or comments.
September is a great month to be a member of St. Paul. Let’s all continue to do our best in all of our work and activities, giving thanks to God the Father through our Lord Jesus Christ.
