A MESSAGE FROM FATHER JOHN GABRIEL

Dear Parishioner:

Several weeks ago our Faith Forever Team planned an evening with Matt D’Antuono who was going to speak about ways to share faith with others.  Unfortunately, due to inclement weather, the evening was cancelled.  We will reschedule Matt to come and speak about apologetics in the New Year.  For now, we have posted on the parish website and attached it to this letter with a few tips for sharing your faith at Christmas time.

This beautiful season of peace and joy can be a time when we all open our hearts a little bit more to God’s action in our lives.  Perhaps God can use you to help someone else come to know more about His love by answering a question someone may ask about faith or by witnessing to your own love for God and the impact faith has for you. 

Check out Matt’s video for a few tips, and may this holy season be a time of growth and renewal for you and all those you love.

Christmas blessings!
Father John Gabriel

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?
