SPIRITUAL ADOPTION PROGRAM

The purpose of this Spiritual Adoption initiative is to raise awareness of the gift of human life!  This is done by encouraging people to "spiritually adopt" an unborn baby,  and to follow their baby along the path to be being born.  How does this work?  It is very simple.  Participants pledge to pray for nine months for a baby in danger of abortion.  While this child will remain unknown to his 'spiritual parent', God knows who the child is.  Many people have found that naming 'their child' helps to keep them focused on the reality that their prayers are helping to save a particular baby from the harm of abortion.  So, sign up today.  Return the sign-up form in the collection basket.  Your prayers save lives!  Won't you commit to spiritual adoption today?

St. Paul Parish Stewardship Appeal

Reflecting on our recently completed Stewardship Appeal, it is clear that St. Paul Parish is truly blessed!  We are working together to create and sustain a community of belonging, where each individual's dignity and worth is strengthened by the solidarity or our shared faith, the respect and affection we have for one another, and our mutual commitment and dedication to our god-given mission.

With God's help, may we continue to grow in Discipleship.  The willingness of our members to enter into sacrificial giving of time, talent and treasure in response to our Stewardship Appeal speaks of our continued gratitude for God's many gifts.

May God continue to bless us as we share in His work!
