CALLED AND GIFTED WORKSHOP
OCTOBER 28-29, 2016
Have you ever asked God, “What do you want me to do?” Perhaps He is already showing you. For every thing God calls us to do, He gives us gifts to accomplish the task. Let us help you discern these gifts and live more fully and fruitfully His will in your life.
All are invited to join us for the Called and Gifted Workshop at the Church of Saint Paul on Friday, October 28 through Saturday, October 29. This introductory workshop is the first step in a three part discernment process developed by the Catherine of Siena Institute (learn more here). View a copy of the workshop flyer here.

YEAR OF MERCY
December 8, 2015 - November 20, 2016
"Pope Francis has invited us to observe a special jubilee Year of Mercy starting December 8, 2015...As we enter this Year of Mercy we need to pray that the Holy Spirit will prepare our hearts, not only to receive the gift of God's mercy, but also for the grace to be able to share that gift of mercy with others...however you prepare, I ask that you lift up your brothers and sisters to the Lord who are most in need of His mercy, and ask God how He might want to use you to be an instrument of His mercy during this special year." Fr. Tim Norris
Please join us each day at 3:00pm to pray the Novena and Chaplet of Divine Mercy as the church bells ring.
You can also listen to the latest "Mercy Minutes," those testimonies given before weekend Masses during the Year of Mercy:
