Dear Parish Family,

One of your most endearing qualities to me is your participation and support of the many opportunities the parish offers for on-going religious education and formation.  Thank you.

For example, St. Paul’s Parish offers Catholic education and formation for children in pre-school through high school.  On college campuses like Walsh University, and in Newman Centers on other campuses, on-going Catholic formation is available to adult Catholics of all ages.

Through the human resources of professional and volunteer teachers, catechists and aides, and through the financial donations of every parish member, St. Paul Parish offers the outstanding St. Paul Elementary School for boys and girls (pre-school through Grade 8).

St. Paul Parish also offers Family Faith Formation Programs for our students in public elementary schools:  the Edge Program for our public school 6th and 7th graders, the Chosen program for 8th graders, the LifeTeen (ElevateYM) for high school students, and adult education opportunities after people graduate.

At these parish and diocesan programs and meetings, people of all ages learn not only what the Church teaches, but why the Church teaches what she teaches.

So, I welcome you all back to our FFF, Chosen, Edge and LifeTeen programs!  Welcome to the RCIA process for adults that resumes on the 21st!

Our bulletins often invite your participation in programs like the Wednesday evening meetings to support divorced Catholics, to Sunday morning and Monday evening 8-week sessions for Adult Spiritual formation, and to the Wednesday 7-week faith sharing group for Catholic women.

Come join us.

Sincerely yours,

Fr. Jay
