      Weeva Project
       
      On behalf of the 25th Anniversary Planning Committee, we would like to invite all previous and current parishioners to take part in the Weeva Project for the 25th Anniversary of St. Paul Catholic Church.  Weeva is a social networking site that allows multiple users to document an event such as the history or ‘The Story of St. Paul Parish’ in a collaborative online manner.  In many ways it works like facebook where you can start a thread (subject), create a passage in the thread (like making a post on facebook), or comment on someone else's passage.  You can add photos to passages, etc.

      For more
      information on the Weeva project and how you can get involved please follow the link below:

    • The Schoenstatt Rosary Campaign

      Is an Apostolate within the International Schoenstatt Movement. It began in Brazil and initiates prayer, evangelization, and formation through the traveling Pilgrim MTA shrine. Groups of 5-10 families circulate the wooden icon during the course of each month.  What takes place when the Pilgrim MTA goes to visit families and homes?

      When the Blessed Virgin Mary went to visit her cousin, Elizabeth, her presence brought many blessings. Not only did Mary serve Elizabeth’s physical needs, she brought the Lord with her into Elizabeth’s house. She filled the atmosphere in the home with praises of God, prompted joy, inspired prophecy, and prepared the way for the miracle of Zachary’s cure. (cf Luke 1:39-56).  Mary needs you to bring her and Jesus into our homes, offices, schools, gathering places. We are called on by the recent popes to spread a Christian culture, a Marian atmosphere wherever we are. We can overcome the gravely sinful and negative aspects in society by opening our hearts to Mary. She wants to transform our minds and hearts with her graces from the Schoenstatt Shrine and to spread the Kingdom of God by bringing Christ anew to those around us.

      The campaign meets in the Upper Room on Wednesday evenings from 7-8pm for English and 8-9pm for Spanish.  Come join us and see what Our Lord and Blessed Mother have for you.

       

    • Floral Ministry
      “The work of the altar should be a labor of love” and while that is certainly true, it is an indescribable privilege to care for the church environment, altars, sanctuaries, flowers and linens.

      As necessary, this work is coordinated with other pastoral committees, parishioners and priests to meet the numerous decorative, social and liturgical functions throughout the church year. The goal is to provide a sacred atmosphere so that all may grow in holiness while meeting the needs of the Church.

      If this is a ministry that interests you please follow the link below for more information.

       
    • Parish Stewardship

      If someone who has worldly means sees a brother in need and refuses him compassion, how can the love of God remain in him? Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.
       - 1 John 3: 17-18

    • RCIA Needs Your Help
      Periodically we have candidates/catechumens who, for whatever reason, have no one to sponsor them.  The RCIA team is collecting names of parishioners interested in serving as a sponsor for a catechumen or candidate.  We will initiate this new component of our program with the 2014-2015 class.  Please watch/listen for announcements regarding when and where for an “If You Are Interested” meeting.  Contact Deacon Lee or Vicki if you have questions or would like to sign up on the sponsor list. What a wonderful way to reflect, share and deepen our faith.
    • Around St. Paul Parish
      Do you want to know what is going on at St. Paul?  Some of the ministries have asked that we create information pages for them and we did.  Please check out the "About St. Paul Parish" to keep up to date.

    • Prayer for Our Troops
      Almighty and eternal God, those who take refuge in you will be glad and forever will shout for joy. Protect our troops as they discharge their duties. Protect them with the shield of your strength and keep them safe from all evil and harm. May the power of your love enable them to return home in safety, that with all who love them, they may ever praise you for your loving care. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
