Church of St. Paul Fellowship

-

Dear fellow Parishioners at the Church of St. Paul: Our Fellowship after Sunday Holy Mass has gone very well, both in terms of numbers and spirit. In order to build on it, some information is needed. One Sunday per month is taken by the Knights of Columbus; one Sunday we are asking the Women’s Circles to cover. The remainder could be taken by a family(ies), a few friends, a couple, etc.
Some Sundays, the food is very elaborate, sometime it is simply donuts and coffee & milk. It is entirely up to the volunteers. Generally, about 40 people come down. However, because there are people whose diets exclude sweets or gluten, some protein would be good, such as cheese & crackers, protein bars, meat sticks, hard boiled eggs, etc. Fruit s always welcome. Also, a parishioner has volunteered to always have a gluten-free item in the freezer and another to make sure the kitchen is adequately stocked. The sign-up sheet will be posted in the back of the Church. Let us try to continue this good action in our parish. It has been a blessing for so many of us. Thank you and Thanks be to God!

Dear fellow Parishioners at the Church of St. Paul: Our Fellowship after Sunday Holy Mass has gone very well, both in terms of numbers and spirit. In order to build on it, some information is needed. One Sunday per month is taken by the Knights of Columbus; one Sun-day we are asking the Women’s Circles to cover. The remainder could be taken by a family(ies), a few friends, a couple, etc.
Some Sundays, the food is very elaborate, sometime it is simply do-nuts and coffee & milk. It is entirely up to the volunteers. Generally, about 40 people come down.

The sign-up sheet will be posted in the back of the Church. Let us try to continue this good action in our parish. It has been a blessing for so many of us.
Also, we are looking at ways to reduce expenses for those who volunteer. Solutions include providing a budget through the parish and making putting out a free-will offering basket to help defray costs. Thank you and Thanks be to God!

Dear Parishioners,
Some happy news from the Heart of St. Joseph Secular Discalced Carmelite Group in Discernment that meets at our parish! Eleven members received the Brown Scapular of the Discalced Order of Carmel on Friday, May 6, 2022. After a year of preparation, they are now members of the Order of Carmel. They plan to continue in the formation in prayer and knowledge of the Order. After more formation, they will be able to seek to profess vows or promises in the Secular branch of the Discalced Order of Carmel. Many of those who received the Brown Scapular of the Order are parishioners at St. Michael in Pine Island. Congratulations to all who have taken this step! May God bless you!
In Christ through Mary,
Fr. Kasel
