IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM FR. JOHN GABRIEL

Recently, we have received notification of email and text scams that will use the name of a pastor to solicit funds in the form of gift cards or cash donations. The email usually includes no recipients’ name, and asks for financial help for a worthy cause. The pastor’s name concludes the requests.

Law enforcement agencies urge parishioners to question any email or text that doesn’t come from a person in their contacts. If a pastor’s name is used, parishioners should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of the appeal.

Please note: No priest or staff member will ever solicit funds in this manner.

A Word About Your Guardian Angel...

From Fr. John Gabriel, Pastor of St. Paul
Feast of the Guardian Angels: 2 October, 2019

Why is it that one of the greatest gifts God gives us is usually something (or rather, someone) that most of us totally ignore?  Certainly the greatest gift God has given us is the gift of Himself, His Son, most especially in the Blessed Sacrament.  Another great gift God gives us is the Holy Scriptures and the Church with her teachings.  But perhaps the greatest gift God has given to you personally in a totally unique way (in that, my gift is different from yours) is your Guardian Angel!  Why does most of humanity (and I suspect even most Catholics) ignore their presence?

The twin crisis of sexual-abuse and cover-ups in the church has hit us all very hard. For many of us it has shaken our faith and trust in the Church and like all trauma if not openly addressed, it has the power to control us in ways we may not be aware. As one survivor noted, " To begin the healing process, one must face the truth and admit what has been lost".

Beginning in October our Parish will host a 6 week small-group discussion program moderated by fellow parishioners. Read More..
