Jubilee Year of St. Paul
    This Sunday, as we celebrate the feast of St. Peter and St. Paul, the universal church is celebrating the beginning of the Special Jubilee to the Apostle Paul.  As parishioners of St. Paul Parish we will be ushering in a year of intense study about and prayer to our patron.  May this graced time which is devoted to remembering and honoring the great Apostle to the Nations be an occasion of renewed faith and fervor for you and your family.
     As the year progresses, please take the time to read the monthly bulletin letters that will focus on our patron.  Also, take some time to pray to our patron for a renewed and deeper faith in Christ.  St. Paul’s motto was “For me to live is Christ”.  By St. Paul’s intercession, may the same be so for each of us. 
    If you wish, you could use the following prayer to begin each day of the year.

Holy Apostle Paul, help me at the beginning of this new day to offer my body and the whole of my life as a living sacrifice to God.  Do not permit me to conform myself to this age but rather, by your intercession, may I be transformed by the renewal of my mind.  Through this renewal help me to judge what is God’s will, what is good, pleasing, and perfect.  For the one whom I seek and serve is Jesus Christ who is the Lord, now and forever. Amen.

Christian Formation News
Grades K – High School
      All children from grade K – 10 must register.  The registration does not roll over from one year to the next.  You can pick up a form in the back of the church or you can visit the parish office Monday – Thursday during office hours or give us a call at 483-8481 and ask us to mail you a form.  We would be happy to do this

Grades K- 3  The children in grades K – 3 attend classes during the weekend liturgies.  We use a Lectionary Catechesis which is based on the Gospel of the week.  Kindergarten students are not obliged to attend regularly.  However, beginning with grade l, students must attend classes on a weekly basis as the program for 1st Communion is a two year program.  It is vital that students continue with their Christian Formation even after their 1st Communion. This year’s program will begin on September 15, 2007

Grades 4 – 10 +    This program is designed for both parents and children.  Parents are asked to attend the sessions as they have the opportunity to refresh their memory on important matters of the faith . This year’s program for the Generations of Faith has come to an end as of April 13th.
                     Schedule of Classes

Question of the Week
Feast of St. Peter & St. Paul 
(Examples of Faith)
Reading I:
Acts 12:1-11 (Freed from Prison)
Reading II:
2 timothy  4: 6-8 (Rescued from Evil)
Matthew 16: 13-19 (Keys to the Kingdom)

Question for Adults:  What would be my answer to Jesus’ question, “Who do you say that I am?  We have heard this question this very often.  For many of us, the answer varies from one time to the next.  As we mature and see our faith from various perspectives, our notion of Jesus really is changes.  This week would be a wonderful time to reflect on who Jesus really is in our lives.  There are many and varied roads we have traveled on this journey.  Perhaps it is time to take out the map of our heart and to become more serious at developing a notion through faith.

Question for Children? How are Saints Peter and Paul examples of faith for me?  The importance of Sts. Peter and Paul may not be as engrained as it could be for our children.  You may have to begin by doing a little background work with your child.  If you need some help you might be able to get some good information on line.  Since St. Paul is our patron, you might want to stress some aspects of this saint’s faith life.  Both men were pillars and giants of faith.  Both are well deserving of our time and effort.  

Why are some priests “friendlier” than others during Mass?  There is probably more than one answer to this question but most probably the majority of times, the answer revolves around the notion that some priests understand the idea of ritual better than others.  The make a long story short, being “friendly” such as saying “good morning, etc. and “have a nice day” only serves to break the mood of the solemn ritual we are there to participate in.  Once the Mass begins it really should not be interrupted.  If a priest wants to be “friendly” he should do so at the entrance of the church or before the Mass begins.  The same is true at the end of Mass.  Announcements should not be made before the Mass is completely ended.  Once the final blessing is given, the coast is clear for other matters.  So, don’t blame a priest for being unfriendly, he’s only doing what the liturgy calls for.

News from Your Spiritual
Adoption Baby
. . . month six.
“I’m sitting up straight now!”
       The baby you spiritually adopted is now in its sixth month of development.  He or she is doing well and wants you to know that your prayers are working.  Don’t stop now.  “Just because I don’t contact you more often doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate everything you are doing.  Here’s a little update on what is going on by way of my development.” 
    The baby’s oil and sweat glands are functioning; these help regulate body temperature.  A white filmy layer covers the baby and protects his/her delicate skin from the surrounding amniotic fluid and from scratches as the baby twists and turns.  This waxy substance will be quickly absorbed into the skin soon after birth.  He/She can now respond to sound.  The lungs are fairly well developed and he/she would stand a good chance of survival if born at this time.
