St. Paul the Apostle Parish Update–
Bishop Crosby has announced changes in assignments for priests in the Diocese and has appointed newly ordained priest, Father John Schnurr as Associate Pastor effective June 26. We welcome him to our parish and wish him much success in his new role. This move means that our current Associate, Father Philippe has been reassigned to St. Catherine of Sienna. We will be saying farewell to Father Philippe on Sunday, June 23 with receptions following the 9 and 11 am Masses. Please join us that day for cake and refreshments to say goodbye. The parish is supporting a Grade 9 Outreach Retreat day at Corpus Christi by collecting non-perishable food and toiletries. Please consider donating to this worthy cause by dropping items off in the marked boxes at the parish until May 20. Further details are in the bulletin or parish website. We congratulate our pastor Father Ed Henhoeffer, who celebrated 24 years of Priestly Ordination on Sunday, May 6.
