The Summer months are upon us and hopefully, everyone will get some time to take a break, relax or maybe even “get away” for a week or two.If so, please don’t forget your support of St. Paul’s. Remember, even when you’re not here, St. Paul’s continues to function, which means bills keep coming in. Please try to make-up any weekly contributions that you may miss while away. Your continued support, throughout the year is so vital. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
Our Church Mass Book for the year 2016 is open for anyone who would like to schedule an announced

We celebrate the presence of God in our midst in Word and in Sacrament. Additionally, we are created to be "hearers of the Word." In order for this to happen, we need Lectors who can proclaim the Word. Lectors assist during the Liturgy of the Word by proclaiming the First and Second Readings. The First Lector also joins the Opening Procession raising the Book of Gospels through the Assembly and placing it on the Altar. During Holy Week additional Lectors are needed to assist in proclaiming the Passion Narrative.
If you wish to understand more about Scripture, the Sunday Readings, and the various Feasts and Holy Days throughout the Church's Liturgical Year, a good place to start is through becoming a Lector. Each Lector is provided a helpful Manual which provides a brief explanation for each week's reading. The Manual provides help with pronunciation of words and other oral speaking tips. It also provides easy to understand historical background to enhance your understanding of each reading and its connection to other scriptural passages of biblical themes. We especially need Lectors for our Mass at 5pm on Saturday. If you are interested, please fill out the form at the entrances to the church and give it to Fr. Sean, Deacon John or Carl Locatelli, bring it into the office, or put it in the collection basket.
