Message From the Pastor

Fr. Michael HermesWelcome to St. Paul Parish as we approach the greatest celebration of the Christian liturgical year: Holy Week. This is the best time to be a Catholic-Christian. During this time, we are in a sense “outside of time.” Through the rites of the Church, we transition from Lent to Easter, from purple vestments to white, from death to resurrection, and from human frailty to the fervent hope of eternal salvation in Christ, who “is our salvation, life and resurrection, through whom we are saved and delivered.”  

The liturgy of the Sacred Paschal Triduum is the most beautiful communal prayer of the year. Many people think that Christmas is the central celebration of the year for a Christian when, in fact, it is the Sacred Paschal Triduum: Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday.

Please, if at all possible, set aside the time to come to Holy Thursday for the Washing of the Feet and the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. This is the Mass when we bring our CRS Rice Bowls as an offering of solidarity and love to our brothers and sisters in another part of our world. 

On Good Friday, we hear proclaimed the Passion of Jesus Christ according to St. John. It is very powerful and moving. Then we have the Adoration of the Holy Cross. “Lord, by your Cross and Resurrection, you have set us free!”

On Saturday night at the Easter Vigil, we will gather around the new fire, we will listen to the stories of God’s covenant, and experience the return of the “Alleluia!” to our Masses. We will also celebrate the Easter Sacraments of Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation with 12 adults from our community

For Easter Sunday morning, we have scheduled extra Masses to accommodate all of our parishioners, friends and neighbors who want to come to St. Paul to celebrate the Easter Resurrection, when we proclaim loud and clear: “He is not here, for he has been raised just as he said” (Mt. 28:6).

This truly is the best time to be a Catholic-Christian. Please do your best to participate in as many Holy Week liturgies as possible for your own spiritual renewal and for the benefit of your family and community.

Fr. Nathan, Deacon Mike and I look forward to celebrating these beautiful holy days with you and your family.

God bless you!
Fr. Michael
