  • Parish survey

    Dear Parishioners:
    I want to personally invite you to participate in St. Paul’s 2018 Parish Survey; focusing on the issues that pertain specifically to our parish, our people and our programs.
    The survey is open from October 6 until October 21. I have included a link that will take you directly to the survey through any electronic device -laptop, tablet, iPad or smartphone.
    Although the survey should not take long to complete, you can interrupt your session at any time and resume later. 
    Your input is critical. In fact, I would truly like to hear from everyone in your household who has received the Sacrament of Confirmation. I need to hear what we are doing well, what we need to begin to do and where we need to improve. 
    I also want you to know that this survey is for the exclusive benefit of St. Paul’s, so your opinion will be weighed against our issues, not those of parishes with different challenges. 
    Fr. Sean

    Take the Survey Electronically - It’s Easy!
    You can take the Parish Survey on your smartphone, tablet, iPad, or desktop computer. All you need to do is click on the link below, or copy and paste the link into your browser, to begin. The Parish Survey will open immediately on your device and you can start answering questions:

  • 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.

  • Word on Fire

  • 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. 

  • 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.

    Fr. Sean

  • St. Paul's Mission

    St. Paul's strives to be a community of Christians, in the Roman Catholic tradition, responding to the call of Jesus under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, providing mutual assistance in Christian life, witness, service and worship and promoting the Reign of God as proclaimed in the Scriptures:

    • to Act with justice
    • to Love tenderly
    • to Serve one another
    • to Walk humbly with God
  • Called to be holy


    Eph. 1:4 - “As he chose us in Himbefore the foundations of the world,
    to be holy and blameless before him in love. “

    The Second Vatican Council, in the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Lumen Gentium, speaks of the universal call to holiness, saying that no one is excluded.

    St. John Paul II likened holiness to training in the art of prayer.

    Pope Francis, in March of 2018, wrote an apostolic exhortation on the call to holiness hoping the church would devote herself anew to promoting the desire for holiness. He used the Beatitudes to show the way.

    Do you desire a closer relationship with God?
    Has your prayer become dry?
    Is the Spirit calling you to deepen your commitment

    to a holy life?
    Do you wonder about how to respond to this call? Join us for a day of listening to short presentations

    and to one another and to God as we experience different prayer forms and share our collective wisdom under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

    Signup sheets are at the entrances to the church
    for this Day of Reflection titled “Called to Be Holy,” from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. next Saturday, Oct. 20. 
    It will be presented by Pat Davies, who is a parishioner at St. Paul’s, a trainedspiritual director and experienced retreat leader. Bring a bag lunch. Freewill donations will be accepted.

    Not sure of your schedule yet? No worries. Walk-ins will be welcomed!

  • 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.
