We, the Christian community of St. Paul, are committed to serving the Lord and His people through witnessing and stewardship of time, talent and treasure, and, rooted in the Word and Tradition, are focused on encountering Him in the Breaking of the Bread.
Until further notice, we will continue to have outdoor Mass on Sunday at 10am.
On Sunday May 31st we will have a special Mass at Noon (also outdoors) to celebrate Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation) for adults who completed the RCIA process. Thank you for your prayers.
Mass from Bishop Barron's Chapel
Our parish has purchased a subscription to FORMED.org, an incredible online gateway to Catholic material all in one place. Enjoy a Bible study, MP3s, books, and movies. Click here for the St. Paul link to register for FORMED. Alternatively, you may register at the website formed.org using the St. Paul access code NKBQBB.
For those in RCIA who were scheduled to receive Sacraments at the Easter Vigil, we hope to reschedule for Pentecost Sunday (May 31st). We'll be in touch with information as we have it.
Youth Confirmation is postponed until sometime after Bishop Raica is installed, and will probably be in the new Religious Education year.
First Communion is postponed until further notice.
Keep all those affected by COVID-19 in your prayers. Remember, we are in God's loving hands.
From Fr Tom:
You are all being remembered in a special way daily in the Masses (said privately) and my prayers. All the intentioned Masses, both weekend and day, are invariably celebrated. Please continue to keep everyone in your prayers and stay spiritually connected (spiritual communion prayer) without fail, hoping for a speedy return to our community worship.
