A big thank you to all who worked so hard to make this year's parish festival a huge success, without your dedication we could not have pulled off this event.
At its core, tithing is an acknowledgement that the gifts or talents we have were entrusted to us by God, and are intended to be used for His glory and to spread the gospel. Tithing allows parishes to meet day-to-day needs, allocate funds for emergencies and fund future projects. It is understood, that as a community of faith, we are to provide for the needs of the Church. Fr. Hector Vega recommends that we fulfill the needs by tithing 5% of our income to the parish, 4% to charities of our choice, and 1% to the Diocese.
Listed below are tithing guidelines that may help you in deciding your recommended weekly sacrifice to the parish.

Have you ever wondered where the pictures come from that we scroll on this page? They come from you. If your organization, group, or program here at St. Paul has any pictures you would like added to this page, please send them to Bob Dugas, Parish Administrator for review and they may be added.
You are not a member of an organization, group, or program here at St. Paul (we need to work on that) but have some pictures that might interest the parish, we will be happy too look at them. Please send them to Bob as well. Who knows, you might see your picture scrolling soon.
St. Paul Youth Program will be sending 13 people to represent our parish to World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland in July of 2016. Our very own Fr. Hector will be one of the St. Paul people attending. Our group from our parish will be among over 100 people from our Diocese alone attending this event.
UPCOMING FUNDRAISER: PLEASE BUY OUR MILES: There are approximately 5,700 miles from Austin Texas to Krakow Poland. We are looking for people who are willing to help us get there by purchasing those miles for $8.00 each. Prayerfully consider purchasing one or more miles to help our youth get to Poland. More details coming soon.
