Message From The Pastor
Our Corporal Work of Mercy this June will be to visit the sick, the lonely and the homebound. We are asking everyone to think of ONE PERSON to visit, either face to face or by a letter, e-mail or phone call. Maybe you can contact an old teacher and thank him or her for being a special teacher in your life. Let’s all reach out to ONE PERSON in our families or our network of friends or parish and let them know we are thinking of them and praying for them.
Henny Parre, the Parish Secretary since 2010 will be retiring at the end of June. We appreciate all of her hard work and time dedicated to St. Paul. She has helped make St. Paul a special parish by sharing her gifts with us. We thank God for Henny and her years of service to our parish!
After serving at St. Paul for two years as sacramental assistant, Fr. Gary Pennings is now being assigned as the Parochial Administrator of Queen of the Holy Rosary Church (Bucyrus-Wea) and will continue as Vicar General, Moderator of the Curia and Director of the Permanent Diaconate. We are so grateful to Fr. Gary for the past two years and all he shared with our parish. We wish him the very best as he moves on in his priestly ministry!
We’ve scheduled a good-bye / thank you reception for both of them on Sunday, June 26th at 9 a.m. in the Parish Gymnasium. Please come to show your appreciation for their service to our parish.
Finally, we will welcome Fr. Nathan Miller to St. Paul in August. Fr. Nathan has been appointed the part-time Parochial Vicar of St. Michael the Archangel and the part-time Parochial Vicar of St. Paul Church. Fr. Nathan will serve at St. Paul by providing weekend Mass support. We are very pleased that he is assigned to our parish and we look forward to his arrival in August.
God bless you during the month of June.
