  • The gift of Holiday meals

    Last week, a very efficient team filled more than 70 Thanksgiving baskets (actually cardboard boxes, which holds more) thanks to your seemingly endless generosity.

    Those grateful families – some of whom arrived with thank-you cards or tears of gratitude in their eyes - will be returning in just a few weeks for Christmas baskets.

    We could use your help again with these items:

    Hams, Turkeys, Stuffing, Instant Mashed Potatoes, Cranberry Sauce, Canned Peas /Corn/Green Beans, Tea, Baked Beans, Gravy Mix, Cocoa Mix, Coffee, Canned Fruit, Applesauce, Tomato/Meat Sauce, Packaged Cookies

  • a message from our new youth minister

    Dear Parishioners:
    We are very excited to be re-igniting the youth ministry program here at St. Paul’s. We see the importance now more than ever for the need to have a program that supports the joy and fullness of living a Gospel life and feeling the love and grace of God.

    With that, we ask for your prayers for
    willing participants to provide support to our ministry team and youth. We ask for prayers for our youth, that they may hear the call of this ministry and join us in the endeavor. Lastly, we ask for prayers that God will be working in us through each of our God-given gifts so that we may, as a community, raise our youth up to be the best versions of themselves as God has intended.

    Please reach out to us if you feel you have been called to this ministry by contacting the church office.
    God Bless,
    Chris Worthington

  • All Souls


    To have your loved ones remembered at all the Masses during the month of November, list the names on the envelope provided in your box of envelopes, on the special envelopes found at the church doors or on a plain whiteenvelope marked “All Souls Remembrance.” Then drop theenvelope in the collection basket.

    The names will be placed on the altar where they will remain for the entire month.

  • Food Pantry

    Although the Food Pantry shelves are well- stocked right now, that changes with each passing week. The First Sunday of the month is Food Pantry Sunday and items such as juice, cereal, mayonnaise, pancake mix, syrup and soup will disappear first. Also, keep in mind that the food pantry is available anonymously to all parishioners in need. Just give Deb in the office a call to make arrangements.

    Thanks to your generosity, we’re able to help many families who are hungry. To keep the pantry stocked, these nonperishable items are always welcome:

    Pasta and sauce, cans of tuna, mayo, chili, soup, vegetables, cereal, oatmeal, pancake mix and syrup, peanut butter and jelly, rice, beans, instant mashed potatoes, juice and juice packs, tea, honey, granola bars, popcorn, pretzels, rice cakes, crackers.

    Please, no expired items! 

    If you or someone you know is in need of food, please contact the church office, Fr Sean, Deacon Carl or the Religious Education office.  All requests are strictly confidential. 

  • Mass Intention Book 

     The 2019 Daily Mass Record, which is now open for anyone who would like to schedule an announced Mass on a Saturday evening or Sunday morning next year. Having a Mass said for
    a deceased family member or friend – often around the anniversary of their death or birthday – is an important Catholic tradition. The usual donation is $10 per name, paid at the time of scheduling, which includes a Mass Card that will let others know when their loved one is being remembered in prayer.
    And when you stop by the office to schedule your memorial Masses, remember that we also have cards available that convey the gift of prayer for happy occasions such as births, birthdays and anniversaries.

  • Free Access to Formed

    My dear Sisters and Brothers,

    A wonderful thing is now available to all parishioners in the archdiocese! The Archdiocese of New York is subsidizing for one year a subscription to the on-line site: FORMED. Everyone in the parish can now access the web site: formed.org, by using the Parish Access Code: H36R3F. Take note that you must use capital letters in order to sign in properly.

    Go to FORMED.ORG, use the access code, and you will be asked to register an account with your name, address and email address. The site will then lead you to faith formation programs, Bible studies, Catholic-themed movies, e-books, conferences and much more, all of it free.

    I hope that you will make use of this site and open yourself to the some of the best traditional explanations of our Catholic Faith.

  • Scripture Study

    Have you ever listened to the readings at Mass and occasionally struggled with the message?

    You’re not alone. That’s what prompted our Sunday Scripture Study at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesdays in the first place. The group usually meets until the end of June, but it was decided this year to continue through the summer and not take a break.

    This is not Bible study. Rather, it’s an opportunity togather several days before weekend Mass, read those Scriptures ahead of time and discuss their meaning. Often, some of the group’s participants have a better understanding of history, which helps bridge the gap between then and 2018.

    Meetings are informal, and people are welcome to attend as they are able. For more information, callErnie Martin at 800-4342.

  • New to St Paul's?

    New Parishioners are always welcome and are encouraged to join the Parish. Why Register?

    To facilitate communication with you

    So we can more accurately plan for parish needs

    Sacramental record keeping

    Active membership allows a person to be a godparent at Baptism or sponsor a child at Confirmation.

    Young Adults should register whether they live with their parents or on their own. This makes it possible for you to demonstrate that you, your-self, are a registered active and participating individual member of St. Paul’s Church, apart from your parents. We hope that you will find our church community a place where your life of faith will be nourished. Your prayers, your presence, and your talents are most welcome here.
