Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. And a time where most of us take extra time to reflect on our lives and how we can become better disciples of Jesus Christ. Here at St. Paul there are several opportunities to grow in our faith and our community. Please take time to discern if you desire to enrich yourself in the coming Lenten Season.
Ash Wednesday is March 1st.
Don’t give up Chocolate for Lent!

“We must create a “culture of encounter,” a culture of friendship,
a culture in which we find brothers and sisters,
in which we can also speak with those who think differently,
as well as those who hold other beliefs,
They all have something in common with us:
they are images of God; they are children of God.”

“May the Church
be a place of mercy and of hope in God,
where everyone can feel welcomed, loved,
forgiven and encouraged to live the good life of the Gospel.
And to feel welcomed, loved, forgiven, encouraged,
the Church’s doors must be open,
so that all may come
and that we can go out of those doors
and proclaim the Gospel!”
-- Pope Francis
Our historic church was built in 1865.
