“St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church is a growing and diverse community with a small parish feel. United in prayer and worship, we reach out to others, leading and serving as one with Christ.”
My dear Brothers and Sisters,
Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, celebrated Mass in St. Peter's Square on Sunday, October 27, 2013, to mark World Family Day. The Pope concluded his homily with reflection on the joy of living as a Christian family. "The family that experiences the joy of faith, communicates it naturally. That family is the salt of the earth and light of the world; it is the leaven of society." After Mass, the Holy Father paused before an icon of the Holy Family on the steps of the Basilica, and prayed: "Holy Family of Nazareth, reawaken in our society the awareness of the sacred and inviolable character of the family, an inestimable and irreplaceable good. Let every family be a welcoming place of goodness and peace..."
We give thanks for 50 years as a parish family at St. Paul the Apostle, as we share the essence of God's loving Spirit, goodness and peace with each other and with the broader community.
May God bless you and yours,
Rev. Wencil Pavlovsky
Similarly to last year, Father Wencil will review the current State of the Parish at all Masses the weekend of September 27 and 28, 2014.
This is important information to our parish and applies to each of us that is part of St. Paul the Apostle’s spiritual family.
We are working hard at recruiting qualified volunteers for Catechists and Helper positions for the CCE, EDGE and LifeTeen Programs. If a class does not have the necessary volunteers, we will either combine classes or postpone start dates until the position is filled.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church reminds us that it is our Baptismal calling to share in the Church’s Mission and to go out to make disciples. Please consider stepping up to be a Catechist or a Catechist Helper. The Church and Christ’s Children NEED YOU.
CCC1213 Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua),4 and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word."
CCC1276 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you" (Mt 28:19-20).
Parish Pictorials are in!
If you took a photo for the St. Paul the Apostle parish pictorial (2 years ago), please stop by the table in the narthex (after every Mass) to sign for and receive your copy.
God bless each of you who have so generously responded in support of the 2014 Diocesan Services Fund. If you have heard Christ’s call and have not yet responded, please do so today. To give online, please visit www.archgh.org/dsf. Help us attain our parish goal of $126,000.00.
