Christmas 2016  

"And from his fullness we have received grace upon grace."
    --John 1:16

In the quiet of the night in a little town called Bethlehem, God’s purpose for us was revealed in an infant born of the Virgin Mary. The eternal Word of God broke into history by becoming flesh in Jesus the Lord. This Jesus is the definitive Word of God who for our salvation came down from heaven.

As we respond to God’s Word in the flesh and the invitation to faith which Jesus extends to us, we see more clearly that we have indeed received from his fullness grace upon grace. Our daily walk with our Savior shows us his faithfulness and love. Daily we experience grace upon grace.

Against the backdrop of a very disturbing presidential campaign, the insidious growth of secularism wherein God is, at best, reluctantly tolerated, and the troubled spots around the world, particularly Syria, we rejoice in the grace we have received from our Lord Jesus Christ. We are the joyful beneficiaries of that grace whereby we proclaim Jesus as the Lord of our lives. God has a desire and plan for us: that we might be one with Him in Jesus.

So, we say to one another, "Merry Christmas," with full knowledge of what God is doing among us, namely that God is saving us through the Word made flesh. We rejoice in God our Savior who is Jesus the Lord.

Merry Christmas. Grace, mercy and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with us all.

In Christ,

Father Tom Nestor

Parish News & Events

Monday, January 23, 2017

A day of prayer and fasting to commemorate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Saint Paul Parish will hold its Holy Hour For Life on Monday, January 23, 7-8pm in the lower church. Please join us for prayer, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction as we seek the Lord’s help in protecting the dignity of all human life. 

Coming March 10th at St Paul's: St. Luke's Production of

Leonardo Defilippis’ one-man religious theater production, Vianney, opens amidst the chaos of the French Revolution. This period in French history mirrors the secularization, materialism, and anti-religious sentiment of our own day. Because of these parallels, Vianney is a powerful tool for the evangelization of our contemporary culture. Against this dramatic backdrop, a simple peasant priest enters Ars. This backwater town is a place where no one cares much about their faith. They don’t expect much out of John Vianney either, but then the impossible begins to happen. Through John’s example, love, and sacrifice, the townspeople begin to change. Watch the trailer...

Tickets: $12 for adults, $6 for High School and younger, $25 for family package.
