Message From The Pastor
Happy August at St. Paul Parish! We are busy making plans for a really good year in our parish. We will soon announce the new program, Families of Character, where we will be able to focus in on one virtue every month and promote it in our family life. This will be targeted toward parents and grandparents. Stay tuned for more information and details.
We are asking all parents to make sure their children are receiving some form of official catechism in the faith whether through St. Paul School, the parish Religious Education program, or via the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Please contact the parish office as soon as possible to get your child signed up in an on-going faith formation program.
We are also on the verge of inviting all adults at St. Paul who have not yet received any or all of the official Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation) to please sign up for the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) program. We plan to begin early this year, before Labor Day.
Remember we are still celebrating the Jubilee Year of Mercy in the Catholic Church, all the way until Christ the King in November. We encourage all parishioners to take advantage of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, celebrated every Saturday at St. James Academy at 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and every Wednesday at St. Paul Church at 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. God is merciful all the time!
Finally, welcome to Fr. Nathan Miller, LC, who has joined our parish team this year as the part-time Parochial Vicar. We are very pleased to have him with us to help celebrate Masses on the weekend.
