Message From the Pastor
Dear fellow parishioners,
May is a great month to be a member of St. Paul Catholic Church. We started off the month with two beautiful Confirmation Masses on May 3rd and 4th, celebrated by Abbot James Albers, OSB, from St. Benedict’s Abbey in Atchison. We are very proud of our 126 youth who celebrated receiving the gifts of the Holy Spirit at Confirmation. We pray they all will take their faith to heart and take it with them as they move forward toward high school and college.
May 13th is Mother’s Day. We give thanks to God for our mothers, the women who have known us our entire lives. A mother’s love is unique and upon reflection also gives us more insight into the love of God for each one of us.
Also, on Sunday, May 13th, we will be praying the Rosary at the Marian Garden in honor of our Lady of Fatima. We look upon Mary with great respect and honor her as the Mother of the Church.
St. Paul School Graduation will be on Wednesday, May 16th at 7 p.m. We are very proud of our 8th grade class. We know God has big plans in mind for these 8th graders.
We give thanks to God for all of our students graduating from 8th grade, high school and college. A graduation blessing will be given to all high school seniors on Sunday, May 27th at the 10 a.m. Mass in English and at the 12:30 p.m. Mass in Spanish. Thanks be to God!
Finally, a special Memorial Day Mass will be celebrated on Monday, May 28th at 8 a.m. at Mt. Calvary Cemetery on Highway 169 south of town. In case of bad weather, we will have Mass in at St. Paul Church at the same time. We remember those who have died defending our country and also all those buried in the Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery. “Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.”
Enjoy the month of May. Give thanks to God.
Thank you for belonging to St. Paul Parish.
I am honored to be your pastor.
God bless you.
