Last winter and spring, our parish participated in the GROW pastoral planning process offered by the Archdiocese. After gathering together demographic and financial data about the parish, and the results of the parish wide survey taken last March, through a process of prayer and discernment, the GROW committee reflected on our mission and vision for the parish, and produced a plan to focus on five key goals or initiatives.

Welcome to the Church of Saint Paul's website. As a parish we seek to live out our Catholic faith by encountering the living God. We seek to grow in deep relationship with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit through prayer and the Sacraments, and by knowing the truths of the Gospel and our Catholic faith. This knowledge is meant to be lived in relationship with God and one another. Join us as we seek to grow deeper in encountering the Lord through our Catholic Faith.

Let us come together as a parish family to pray that God will continue to pour out His blessings upon the Church of Saint Paul and that we will be fertile ground for religious vocations for His Church. The evening includes praise, adoration, and benediction.
