Message From The Pastor
Fr. Nathan Miller, LC, will be joining St. Paul as the part-time Parochial Vicar in August. Fr. Nathan will be helping us with Masses on the weekends. He will continue to reside at St. Michael the Archangel in Overland Park. We look forward to having him join us. We will have a welcome reception for him sometime in August.
During the month of July we have two special Works of Mercy scheduled. One is the summer lunch program in conjunction with Catholic Charities. All of our primary school age children are invited to lunch in the church basement on Mondays-Thursdays, 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Please come for food and friendship.
The other Work of Mercy is our all parish Blood Drive on Monday, July 25th, 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Great Room (next to the Parish Office). There is a shortage of available blood in the greater Kansas City area so your donation will have a huge impact on our city. Thank you!
As many of you know I celebrate my 25th Anniversary to the priesthood the first week of July. It’s been a great honor for me to serve as a Catholic priest.
As St. Paul our patron saint said, “There are many parts but one body” (1 Cor. 12:12). And, “To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit” (1 Cor. 12:7).
I hope that my priesthood has served for at least some benefit. I hope that it has helped to build up the Body of Christ in our archdiocesan church in northeast Kansas. And with God’s divine assistance, I look forward to the next 25 years.
Thank you for your prayers and support.
