Mass Intentions

Mass Intentions

At every Mass, we pray for all those who have died. We pray for Catholics who have died, and we also pray for everyone else, too! This is true around the world! Here at St. Paul, we have had many inquiries about praying for family members, both living and deceased at our Masses. Even before COVID-19, we had a backlog of Mass intentions. Our ability to celebrate Masses has been reduced, we have decided to not take any more paid Mass intentions. Also, we have not been saying the name of the person for whom the Mass is being offered. At the same time, we have been praying for all of our intentions at every Mass.

If you would like your intention included in our Sunday Mass, please message us and we will include the name of the person you want us to pray for in our Mass Companion. Please indicate whether you would prefer Spanish or English and look for the name at the end of Mass in the Companion. We will be praying for your intention. We will also invite everyone viewing the Mass to pray for your intention with us! Let us constantly lift each other up in prayer until we all get to heaven!

Your Church

during Lent

Learn to Pray

No Registration needed!

Do you want to grow spiritually during Lent?  Come and try out different kinds of prayer.  Catholics have been doing contemplative prayer for centuries!  Think St. Anthony in the desert (356 a.d.)!  Think St. Thresa of Avila, or John of the Cross, or Bridget of Norway, or Catherine of Sienna!  We’ll have limited capacity (6 people) and we’ll meet in person.  The day and time will depend on what works for those who would like to participate.

We’ll also offer a chance to learn to pray one of the hours of the church (Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, or Night Prayer).  Again, capacity will be limited to 6 people, and the day and time will depend on what works best for those who would like to participate. 

Lent for Littles

Kids! The Stations of the Cross

Hosted by Religious Education

Hosted by our Religious Education team, kids 7 and up can learn how to pray and reflect using the Stations of the Cross. Each Friday during Lent, sessions will rotate from English and Spanish.

Money Management for Young Adults

from SHINE: Youth outreach

As we all try to focus on what matters for Lent, our Director of Youth Outreach will show youth how to make healthy financial decisions. Ages 17 and up, this program will run during Lent and explain the basics of money management while looking at the theology behind how we look at our finances.

Stations of the Cross

Adults and Prayer

Join our parish volunteers as they lead the Stations of the Cross in English at 4:15pm or Spanish at 6pm each Friday!

Friday Fish Fry

Collaboration with Local Restaurants

We’ve partnered with local restaurants to offer meatless foods on Fridays during Lent. When you order, a portion of the proceeds goes to St. Paul! A list of each restaurant and its Lenten offerings is coming soon!

Stewardship Drive

Support Your Parish

We can no longer rely on rentals from our hall. To stay healthy, we have to have the support of our parishioners. Often, we make INTENTIONAL decisions about cell phones, tv subscriptions, or coffee. Do you make giving INTENTIONAL when it comes to your church? We are working hard to build God’s kingdom at St. Paul. Will you be a part of this growth?

Expanding Our Reach

Expanding Our Reach

COVID-19 has been hard on everyone. As a Catholic church, we have been challenged in new ways. We have had to embrace technology and utilize it to stay connected. We see a bright future for St. Paul’s plan to continue to explore this new world with faith in the wonders God has in store.
