    CARDINAL’S APPEAL 2015

    As Stewards and disciples of Christ, we recognize that all the goods and riches in our life are gifts from God. Strengthened by the Eucharist, we respond to God’s generosity in our lives with gratitude by using and sharing our gifts in service of others. Invest in your faith and parish community and make your gift to the 2015 Cardinal’s Appeal.

    Our Goal: $42,000.00

    NEW PARISHIONERS (CARDINAL’S APPEAL)

    To our many new parishioners who have joined St. Paul’s from another parish: Should you receive an Appeal Letter from the Archdiocese, it probably has your former parish number on it. In order for St. Paul’s to be credited for your donation toward our goal, please put St. Paul’s parish number 389 on the form and in the memo of your check, and make your check payable to the Cardinal’s Appeal.

  • Anniversary News

    EXCITING NEWS!!!

    I want to share some very good news with all of you about our 150th Anniversary celebration.

    His Eminence, Timothy Cardinal Dolan, is going to be with us on Saturday, June 6, 2015, to celebrate Mass at
    5 pm and to join in the festivities for this happy occasion! This will certainly be the highlight of our anniversary year.

    As we “Remember, Rejoice and Renew”, please be sure to get involved in one of the many opportunities our Planning Committee is making available to you. Join Our Spiritual Committee in praying for vocations by participating in the Elijah Cup vocation prayers. Join our History Committee as they continue to bring the last 150 years to light for us. (Be sure to notice the wonderful display of artifacts they have begun to put together in a display in Deacon John Hall.)

    Or help out our Hospitality Committee with the many celebratory activities they have planned for the year from coffee klatches to dinners to picnics. Our Publicity Committee is looking for folks to help in making sure everyone is kept abreast of what is going on, and informing our various local communities of our great joy in reaching this 150 year anniversary. And I’m sure we will be looking for volunteers to help make June 6th a special day for our church and for Cardinal Dolan!!

    I just found out about Cardinal Dolan’s ability to celebrate Mass for us on June 6th and I will keep you informed as we continue to make plans. Let us all continue our prayers of thanksgiving for the past (Remember), our prayers for the future of our church (Renew), and pray for the success of all our plans to mark the 150 years of St. Paul’s Church (Rejoice). God love you all, Fr. Sean 



    Any sign makers, banner makers out there?
    We certainly could use some beautiful banners for the church to welcome Cardinal Dolan and to keep us all aware of our anniversary! We have a simple but beautiful anniversary LOGO and this could be used to make some eye catching signs for our church and hall.  Interested in creating and helping? Call the office at 361-3107

      Worldwide Hunger: A Call to Action and Prayer” Friday, February 27th – 6:30 pm 
 St. Paul's will welcome Sr. Pauline Chirchirillo PBVM, Archdiocesan Director, The Society for the Propagation of the Faith, as our spiritual leader for this year's Simple Soup. Our 2015 Lenten focus is Hunger and the Church's mission to feed, clothe and shelter the world's poor, especially its children. 
 St. Paul's children in grades K-8 are invited to lead their families and faith community in National Prayer and Penny Week 2015! The Church's "Missionary Childhood Association" actively engages K-8 students as they "build the Church in the Missions of our day." Sr. Pauline will chronicle the joyous advances in health, education and family stability realized by the outreach of our Missions worldwide.
 
 As your family arrives on Friday, February 27, please contribute non-perishable food items to St. Paul's food pantry to feed those in need within our community. Our children will then direct our focus to worldwide hunger needs as they initiate National Prayer and Penny Week with  Sr. Pauline's help!
 
 As Pope Francis challenged in his 2014 message to the youth of the world, "To you young people I especially entrust the task of restoring solidarity to the heart of human culture." What a wonderful opportunity for St. Paul's youth to begin that journey at our Simple Soup on Friday, February 27. There are sign-up sheets at the doors of the Church. Please sign up if you plan to attend.
