     Thank You so much for your Generosity.
The people of St. Paul Parish have always been very generous in their donations to the church.  This has made it possible for us to serve the people who have needed it the most.  Thank you so much for all you have provided over the years, whether it be through the offertory donations,  the mission appeals, the food pantry contributions, the Giving Tree donations at Christmas time etc.  we have truly run the race and we will be well rewarded.  God Bless all of you for you Giving Hearts!

   Prayer for Priests
Most gracious and loving Father,
    Christ We thank you for our faithful priests whose spiritual fatherhood and example of fidelity, self-sacrifice, and devotion is so vital to the faith of your people.  May they be guided by the examples of Saints Peter and Paul and all the apostles. Give them valiant faith in the face of confusion and conflict, hope in time of trouble and sorrow, and steadfast love for you, for their families, and for all your people throughout the world.  May the light of your Truth shine through their lives and their good works.  Assist all priests, that through your Grace they may steadily grow in holiness and in knowledge and understanding of your Truth.  May they generously share their knowledge with those who rely on them.  We ask this through our Lord.  Amen

Parish and Religious Education Registrations  Regardless of where you are planning to register once our church is unified with St. Peters you will be expected to register in your new church.  If you have children of age for Religious Education instruction, please do not forget to register them for this program in the new parish. 
    If your child is of age to begin or to continue one of the programs to receive a sacrament, do not wait for the new parish to contact you.  Be sure to take the initiative in the matter. 

"And I will walk amoung you, and will be your God, and you shell be my people."

We Are Church
    This week the Church is asking the parishioners of St. Paul to take the words of Scripture literally and seriously.  As we prepare to go our separate ways for various and sundry reasons, we must try to remember that at the root of our faith is the fact that we are not simply parishioners of St. Paul in Candia but we are the people of God who, for centuries on end, have been asked to journey to places unfamiliar, where the expectations were unknown, and consequences of the move could be somewhat daunting to many.
    Moving in Faith is always a Challenge.  It necessitates that we Trust in the One we say we Believe in.  We have gone this far.  Let us support one another and let us be determined to reach our goal together with Courage and Determination and the Grace of God

We Have Prayed
    Probably the most important act we can perform together as a faith community is to pray.  As a parish we have prayed together for many years.  This has brought us together at a level others cannot share.  We have prayed at weddings, funerals, baptisms in prayer groups and of course at Mass.  The celebration of the Eucharist is perhaps the best means of being united both with Christ and with one another.  This is the main reason we have come to love one another so deeply.  We pray today that the faith community we will be joining in the near future will continue to embrace us wholly.

We have Enjoyed
    Over the years we have had many opportunities to enjoy each other’s company.  We will surely remember the times we spent eating sharing a meal together whether it was a pancake breakfast, a spaghetti or ham and bean supper or perhaps a Senior Luncheon.  We will definitely remember all those times when we shared over Coffee and Donuts.  There is always something special about fellowship while we share a meal.  The intimacy that we share is priceless and the friendships we develop will never be forgotten

We Have Grown
    Over the past four decades the people of our parish have grown and matured together.  Our children have attended Religious Education classes and have come to learn about the God who has created and loved them.  They have received the sacraments of initiation and have become full members of the Catholic Church.  As adults we have grown in breath and depth.  Our ability to share with our fellow parishioners in so many ways has enabled us to learn what we could not have learned alone.  As older adults we see ourselves looking back and wondering where all the years have gone.  We ask ourselves if we have done all we could for the benefit of others.  None of us have grown too old to be able to move on other places, always keeping the goal in perfect focus

We Have Cried
    We cannot be a loving family without experiencing the pain of tears.  Over the years we have lost many of our parishioners through death or because they moved away.  These were sad times and we cried together.  Although these are sad times, the fact that we care tells us that we have received a tremendous gift of the heart.  We have made many friends and this in itself is a precious gift.  We thank all we have come to know and to love.  We have become richer on so many levels because of them.  To all who have gone on ahead of us, we pray that they will accompany us on our journey of Faith and continue to support us in time of need.

We Have Loved
    We cannot claim to be good Christians if we have failed to learn the most essential lesson of all, i.e., to love.  As parishioners of St. Paul’s, we have truly experienced this lesson in the concrete.  We have loved our families, our neighbors, and all who need our help.  We love the elderly, the children, the poor and needy the sick and the dying.  We must never forget this valuable lesson.  Love one another.
