Priceless Treasure

"The Eucharist is a priceless treasure:  by not only celebrating it, but also by praying before it outside of Mass, we are able to make contact with the very wellspring of grace.  A Christian community desirous of contemplating the face of Christ cannot fail also to develop this aspect of Eucharistic worship, which prolongs and increases the fruits of our communion in the Body and Blood of Our Lord."  St. John Paul II, Ecclesia de Eucharistia, 2003

Eucharistic Adoration will resume on Monday, September 8 from 12:30 PM until 6:30 PM when the prayers of Benediction will take place.  Eucharistic Adoration continues each Monday immediately following the 12:05 Mass (excluding holidays and the months of July and August).  Come...let us adore Him!

"Permanent" Saturday Mass Time Change

Beginning November 1, 2014 the Saturday Mass time will change to 4:30 PM "permanently".  This means that unlike in past years, the Mass time will NOT change back to 5:15 PM beginning the first Saturday in May.  Please note this change and plan accordingly when booking Saturday evening memorial Masses or weddings.  Again, this change takes place on November 1st!

SCRIP Cards Summer Sales

SCRIP cards to local supermarkets and a variety of other merchants are sold only after the 8:00 AM and 9:30 AM Masses through August.  Beginning in September, sales will resume after all the weekend Masses.  SCRIP cards continue to be available to purchase in the Rectory during normal office hours.  Thank you for supporting this ongoing fundraiser for St. Paul School.
