Update on Catholic Charities Appeal
   The annual Catholic Charities appeal began on the last Sunday of April.  Thus far St. Paul Parish has given a total of $3657.00 in Cash and has pledged an additional $2037.00 for a grand total of $5694.00  This is approximately half of our goal.  If you have not yet had a chance to make a contribution to this charity, please consider doing so.  The money goes a long way to helping the people of New Hampshire who hare most in need.  Also, 5% of the total given by our parish comes back to us for our own charitable needs. 

The Year of the Priesthood   
This past Friday, on the feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, our Diocese, along with all dioceses of the country, inaugurated the year of the Priesthood.  As the year begins, please keep the priests of our parish, our diocese and of our nation in your prayers.  Beginning this week we will have a special prayer for priests in the box below.  This will replace the prayer to St. Paul since the year of St. Paul will end next week on the feast of St. Peter and Paul.

    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 who is the Lord, Jesus Christ, now and forever.  Amen

Christian Formation News

      All children from k – 10 must register for Religious Education each year.  The registration does not roll over from one year to the next.  We will be mailing a registration form through e-mail in the near future.  If you have not received a form by mid-August it is because we do not have your e-mail address or perhaps you are not yet registered in the parish so we do not have any pertinent information related to you family.  You can call the office between Monday –Thursday at 483-8481 to update your e-mail info or you can pick up a registration in the entrance of the church.

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 1, students must attend classes on a weekly basis during the Mass, as the program for 1st Communion is a two year program.  The program for the school year 2009-2010 will begin on the weekend of September 19th and 20th.  Classes are held during both weekend Masses. We would need some volunteers to help out as monitors during the classes.  Please contact the office if you can do this.

Grades 4 – 10 +, Generation of Faith     This program is designed for both parents and children.  Parents who have children in grades  4 - 10 are asked to attend these monthly sessions. The adult session gives them an opportunity to refresh their memory on important matters of the faith as well as giving them the chance to share with other adults on pertinent issues of faith.  All GoF classes are held on Sundays from 4 – 6 pm.  See you all next fall.

Confirmation Program: 
    The Confirmation students will begin their two year program on Sunday, October 5, 2008.  Classes are held from 11:00 am to 12 noon. Students must be registered in the program and must be registered members of the parish.  If you have not yet registered your child for classes please call the office to speak to Lorette.

                     Schedule of Classes

12th Sunday in Ordinary Time 
(Trusting in the Lord)
Reading I: 
Job 38:1, 8-11(Your Proud Waves Be Stilled)
Reading II:
2 Cor. 5: 14- 17 (The Love of Christ Impels Us)
Matt. 4: 35-41 (The Wind and the Sea Obey)

Question for Adults:  When has the Lord helped me break through fear and experience a new confidence in him? The story of the calming of the storm is meant to tell us that Jesus has the power to calm not only the storms of the water but more importantly our personal life’s storms if we have Faith.  It all revolves around Faith.  Perhaps you have had a personal experience of God helping you breaking through a particular fear in your life.  If not, can you think of a time when you would have needed such help but neglected to look to God for his help?  Why was that?

Question for Children: How does Jesus let me know that he is near me to help me and to guide me?  This may be a rather difficult matter because children are usually very concrete and expect to hear or see God act in concrete ways.  Talk to your child about ways they could experience Jesus without actually seeing or hearing him.  Do they ever feel like they are being led toward the right path?  Do they feel something different when they do the wrong thing?  Why could that be?
