Parish Life

 

The heart of a parish is the Eucharist, but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments.

Faith formation is a vital element of the Catholic life as we grow in knowledge and understanding of our faith in Jesus Christ and the Church he gave us. A deeper understanding can lead to a more intimate relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and through the Trinity to the Church and our family, friends, neighbors, parish, and community. Such faith formation is not just for children, but for all of us as we grow as Catholics. Our parish has many opportunities for faith formation that we encourage you to explore.

Another way to participate in our parish life are the various parish ministries; Liturgical Ministries, (choir member, lector, altar server, and Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion), Social Justice Ministries (visiting the homebound, serving the poor, volunteering at our food pantry and many others). We also have a youth group and men's groups. God calls us to use our gifts and talents to glorify Him and make life better for other people. Please prayerfully consider these opportunities for getting involved in ministry. And if you have an idea for a new parish ministry, please contact us. In the meantime you can look at some of our ministries listed under the "Ministries" tab.

With so many ways to be part of parish life, you'll want to stay informed by regularly reading the weekly bulletin, either online or a copy obtained at the Mass that you attend. You’ll also want to check the St. Paul of Tarsus parish calendar for a list of events and Mass schedules.  You can find a link to our calendar on the main page or by clicking

We hope you'll also enjoy viewing
