What’s Happening & Annual Events

Reaching out to our community and neighbors is grounded in the Sacred, we believe we each have unique and heartfelt gifts that we are called to share with others.

In serving others shoulder to shoulder and through individual relationship, we serve ourselves, developing our compassion, and while providing hope and support to others in need as a way to fuel change. It is both an honor and a privilege to be able to do so. The blessing of Jesus always comes to us through the poor; the most remarkable experience is that, in the end, the poor give us more than they receive.

The list below describes St. Paul’s events.  All of the events are open to the public.

Blessing of the Animals

Pets are special to us. They can become members of our families, and they themselves are a special blessing in our lives. God first created animals and called them good, and then created humanity to live with wildlife. We were meant to live together in harmony!  On Sunday a in October at 2:00 pm we will have a ceremony in honor of St. Francis giving thanks to God for the Blessing of our Animals – each animal will receive an individual blessing plus a “Blessing Certificate.” Please call the office in advance with your pet’s name. There will also be special treats for all of our special pets.
