Why Catholic? Program Continues

Our parish’s second season of Why Catholic? will continue this Spring.

According to this article on the Archdiocese of Miami’s website, the 35-year-old Renew International ministry aims to foster spiritual renewal in Catholic communities. Its Why Catholic? program, rolled out across the country, is designed to help Catholics deepen their knowledge of the faith and increase their involvement in the Church, by creating small communities of prayer and study within parishes; thereby, parishes are continually growing new leaders and attracting new members.

The dates — all Tuesdays — are February 3, 10, 17, 24, and March 3, 10. The sessions run from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall. Refreshments are served.

We welcome back all those who joined us last fall for this blessed opportunity for faith deepening and sharing. Of course, newcomers are more than welcome to drop in and see what it is all about.

For more information, call the Parish Office at 954-943-9154.

Archbishop’s Charities & Development Drive

Our goal is $232,227.
To date, we have raised $94,809. (updated 2/22/15)

When we stand together and serve one another, Christ blesses our efforts and the Church becomes a visible sign of salvation for the entire world.

Our goal here at Saint Paul the Apostle, set by the Archbishop’s office, is $188,550 – an increase of $7,000 over last year. In addition, the Parish must pay an assessment of $43,677 to the Chancery, making our combined goal $232,227.

To make your pledge, please use one of the envelopes found in the Church pews or contact the Parish Office at 954-943-9154.

All contributions are tax deductible. We need everybody’s gift. Thank you to all who have pledged up to this point.
