Message From The Pastor

Fr. Michael HermesDear fellow parishioners,

The peace of Christ be with all members of St. Paul Parish!

We just completed our very first Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) men’s retreat on Sept. 30 / Oct. 1. Twenty three of our men lived the experience and every indication is that it was an excellent weekend for all of them. We are very grateful to Prince of Peace and St. Pope John Paul II for bringing the CRHP Retreat to St. Paul. 

We are now looking ahead to the CRHP Women’s Retreat on Oct. 21st and 22nd here at St. Paul. This retreat filled up weeks ago with a very enthusiastic group of women from our parish. 

The next opportunities to experience CRHP at St. Paul will be on February 17th and 18th, 2018 for the men and March 3rd and 4th, 2018 for the women. You can go ahead and register on our website. As your pastor, I highly recommend the Christ Renews His Parish retreat.

I want to mention the Share the Journey initiative. This program is designed to help us think about how we might support our brothers and sisters throughout the world who are on the move, either as refugees or migrants. We all should remember the immigrant roots of each family who is privileged to live in the United States. Think of the sacrifices our own ancestors made in search of a better life for their children (our parents and grandparents) and for their progeny (all of us)!

Share the Journey is an initiative meant to urge Catholics to understand and get to know refugees and migrants who have fled poverty, hunger, violence, persecution and the effects of climate change in their homeland.

Catholic social teaching has clear messages of caring for strangers, the importance of hearing their stories and understanding their needs. Much of the effort will be focused on sharing stories about migrants and refugees, the struggles they face and why they chose to seek a better life elsewhere

Share the Journey looks to mobilize people quickly. The campaign is calling for a week of prayer and action for migrants and refugees Oct. 7-13.

October is Respect Life Month and we will be supporting the start up of the new Olathe Pregnancy Center. There is a planning meeting scheduled for Friday, Oct. 27th at 7 p.m. in the Great Room. I encourage St. Paul parishioners to attend this meeting to see how we can help.

Finally, our prayers and our hearts go out to everyone who was killed or hurt in the horrible shooting in Las Vegas. We pray for the victim’s families and friends. We pray for an end to all violence in our country and throughout the world. 

God bless you all during the month of October.
