Congratulations to all the students who received the sacrament of Confirmation from Bishop Baker on May 9.  May the Holy Spirit continue to guide you in your faith journey.

St. Paul nursery is a great place for children to start their spiritual journey.  In the nursery, children play, listen to bible stories, and learn to sing bible songs.  Children are never too young to learn the love of God.  We encourage ALL parents who have children under the age of 5 to please drop their children off at the St. Paul nursery before the 10:30am mass.  The nursery is located in the back of the Hall in a safe and fun environment.  Infants and toddlers are welcome!

Join us in the Parish Hall on Sundays.

  • At 9:30am, we have a full breakfast on select Sundays and donuts and coffee the other days.
  • After the 10:30am Mass, we have some breakfast items for everyone to enjoy. If you would like to volunteer to help chaperone and clean the hall afterwards, please see the sign up sheet in the vestibule.

The Chapel is open Monday through Friday 9am - 1pm with Adoration on Friday.

If you would like to have Mass said in memory of or in honor of a loved one or a special intention, please call the office as early as possible.  Scheduling one month prior is best for availability.

If you would like to provide flowers in memory or honor of a loved one or for a special occasion, please contact the office or Jayne Higginbotham at 256-206-0266.
