  • Summertime

    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.

  • We The Parish

    WE THE PARISH

    Coming this Fall, as part of our 150th anniversary celebration, an exciting program called “We The Parish.”

    This program is a four-week experience for all adult members of the parish - young, not so young, married, unmarried, the involved and not so involved.

    This is not a lecture series. It is not meant to solve problems, or give answers. Rather, we will be coming together each night for 90 minutes in a friendly atmosphere to share our hopes and dreams for us as a parish family.

    The themes of the four sessions are: (1) “Sunday
    Morning,” {Sept.18} (2)” Sounds of Silence,” {Sept. 25} (3) A Family Affair,” {Oct. 2} and (4) “A Spark of Life.” {Oct. 9}

    It’s all about us, the parish of St. Paul’s. Making a good parish better. Sign up for this program after all the masses on the weekends of Aug, 29-30, Sept. 5-6 and Sept. 12-13.

    For further information contact Bob and Carolyn Bender at 744-3181

  • We need Lectors!

    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.
