PM. The Pastoral Associate is in most afternoons until 4:00 PM.

someone is here. Messages can always be left on the answering
Are you registered?
Are you new to our parish? If you

Registration is very important. Just drop it in the basket or
mail it to our office. Thanks! We are always happy to
receive new parishioners. We welcome you and pray you will be
happy here with us.

|Update on Parish Income
Weekend of June 4, 2006
St. Paul, Candia
Last weekend envelope users contributed 79% of our income.
(Amount tithed for the poor and needy: $139.08
Thank You so much for your Generosity.
To All Parishioners:
Now that we have gone through the difficult time of
transitioning as a twinned parish with the parish of St. Peter, your
pastor along with the pastoral council feel that it is a good time to
have a parish wide re-registration. In order to facilitate
matters, we will be doing this at the same time as St. Peter
Parish. Hopefully this will eliminate more confusion than is
Included with the registration is a short but
important questionnaire that we hope you will take into
consideration. Please consider one of the ministries to the
parish either as a lector, a Eucharistic Minister, an usher, an altar
server or joining the music ministry. There are other ministries
as well which you will find on the questionnaire.
The registration includes everyone, not only new
parishioners. We need to update our files and this new
information is very important. You will notice that there is a
space for your e-mail address. We will soon be able to
communicate by e-mail with most of the parish. This will be a
great time saver for office personnel as well as a financial savings.
We will be having an ongoing registration throughout
the month of June. Please take the information home and return
before July 1, 2006
Thank you very much for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.
Lorette P. Nault, Pastoral Associate
Question of the Week
|Grades K – 3
The children entering grades K- 3 this fall will be attending
Lectionary Catechesis as they have been in the past. The program runs from mid-September to mid-May. The last class of the year will be on Sunday, May 14, 2006
Grades 4 – 10+
This year we are initiating a new program for the children in these
grade levels. The classes are held once a month and the program is
geared to the entire family. Parents are asked to attend the sessions as
there is an adult component to the program. Our first class was Sunday, October
16, 2005 from 11am – 1pm. The
last class of the school year was on May 21, 2006.
This class was held at St. Peter Church at 4:00 PM. There
were a number of church related activities
on that day which would make it difficult if not impossible to hold a
double program. We will return to having separate sessions in
the fall. Thank you very much for your understanding.
If you are new to the parish or if you
is just beginning his/her formation, please call the parish office for
will meet one extra time per month. All students from both parishes will meet together in Auburn
for these meetings.
Theme: (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)
Reading I: Deut.
4:32-34, 39-40 (There is One God)
Reading II: Romans 8:14-17 (Children of God)
Gospel: Matt. 28:16-20 (Make Disciples of All Nations)
Question for Adults: How could I explain
the work of the Trinity in my every day life to someone who does not know God?
<>The concept of the Holy
Trinity is a difficult one a best. Many
of us probably remember the explanations we received from teachers when we were
young. How to understand God as Father,
Son and Holy Spirit all while believing that we worship only one God has always
been, well, a Mystery.
Perhaps it would be simpler to try to understand our relationship
with this God who is after all, Mystery.
Through the Trinity we come to understand that God is all in all. He is our father, our brother and yes, our
very life. He loves us as our parent and
our sibling all the while breathing his very life into ours. When we think of God in this fashion, we have
a better understanding of who our God really is.
> Once we have a clearer notion of who
God is in our lives, we are better able to see his work in our daily
lives. How does God work in our daily
lives? Is he present? Is he distant? When we are aware of his presence, what do we
see him doing? Or perhaps a better
question would be, What do we see him as being?
Let us take the time to reflect on the presence of the Trinity or the
God who is all in all for each one of us.
Then, let us reflect on who we are in relationship to him.
Question for Children? How am I called to
share the good news of God’s love this week?
Each week gives us a new opportunity to serve God in a very
unique way. No two weeks are alike in
our lives nor are any two weeks repetitious in our call from God. This week, God is calling your child to share
the good news of the Jesus’ love for them.
This can be done in a great variety of ways. Help your child to think of ways they can
share the love they receive from God. If
they are at a loss, you could probably direct them to notice what is going on
in their lives at school, at home, in the neighborhood. They should not have to work too hard to
realize that there is great potential right before their eyes.

parishioners for their generosity and support.
Last weekend we raised $550.00 in bake sale proceeds and received a

monthly title at both St. Peter and St. Paul Parishes. We truly appreciate the enthusiasm of those
