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.

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.

Trolling for fresh fried fish and can’t get to the Jersey Shore this winter? Cast your nets for St. Paul’s Fish Fry on March 27th and help raise some cash for the coffers.

Just a seaworthy evening to remind you that summer sand and waves will reappear soon! Tickets go on sale next weekend after all the Masses. Adults $15.00 – Children 10 and under $10.00
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
