2014 Annual Pastoral Appeal - St. Paul Catholic Church  

  2014 Annual Pastoral Appeal
Together, we at St. Paul's can fully participate in the mission of the Catholic Church by our contribution to the Annual Pastoral Appeal. 
We ask you to support the many needed ministries, services, and programs of our Diocese that fulfill the physical, educational and spiritual needs of so many that we could not serve at our parish alone.
Be the Light!   Sea la Luz!
to the many who are in need of help.  Many of your questions
may be answered by watching this year's APA video.

How your gift is put to work:
  • Social Services / Catholic Charities ... With a mission of charity and compassion, Catholic Charities promotes the sanctity and dignity of all people.  The Ministries of Mercy programs, Foundations of Life, Shelters of Hope and Friends in Need, offer a better life to the needy, poor, suffering, and marginalized living in our Diocese.
  • Catholic Formation and Education ... Catholic formation and education teaches us the spiritual and moral truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Our Catholic Schools, Parish Religious Education Programs, Youth Groups, Campus Ministry, Adult Faith Formation, and the Lay Pastoral Ministry Institute (LPMI) use this foundation to guide, evangelize, and provide resources for each of us to become faithfully engaged and caring members of our church, community, society, and the world.
  • Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life ... Our Clergy, Religious and Seminarians are called from the love of the heart of Jesus.  For 2000 years, they have stood alongside millions guiding, protecting, administering, and leading them to Christ.  These vocations, especially our Seminarians, hold the hope that God is truly present and in this world. 
  • Parish-School and Diocesan Ministry Programs and Services ... Preparing for eternal life, we are called to live our lives on earth in His image.  By working together as one body, one community of faith, we can spread the Good News by Word and deed beyond the boundaries of any one parish.  With unified support from services such as the Worship, Stewardship and Development, Construction, Finance and Accounting, Human Resources and Insurance offices and ministries such as our radio station Spirit FM, the Bethany Retreat Center, and Marriage Tribunal, we build strength with our parishes to be good stewards of God's varied gace.
