“BE RICH IN GOOD WORKS…
READY TO SHARE
2015 DIOCESAN SERVICES FUND
Our 2015 Diocesan Services Fund has begun in every parish throughout the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. Christ calls us to reach those who are sick or in need, to bless them and serve them. The thousands of people served by the ministries of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston need your compassion and generosity. Your kind gift to DSF enables us to reach out to people in this parish and throughout the entire Archdiocese through more than 60 important programs.
This past week, all registered parishioners received a letter from our Archbishop, Cardinal DiNardo, along with a personalized pledge card, inviting you to hear Christ’s call of a generous heart and to Be Rich in Good Works…Ready to Share through your participation in this year’s Diocesan Services Fund. Pray about your DSF 2015 commitment, then complete the enclosed pledge card and return it via mail in the special envelope provided or bring it to Mass next weekend. If you prefer, you may go online at www.archgh.org/dsf to make your donation. Your generosity will allow our Catholic community to continue many vital programs and services. Our parish goal for this year is $128,000.

“St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church is a growing and diverse community with a small parish feel. United in prayer and worship, we reach out to others, leading and serving as one with Christ.”
My dear Brothers and Sisters,
Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, celebrated Mass in St. Peter's Square on Sunday, October 27, 2013, to mark World Family Day. The Pope concluded his homily with reflection on the joy of living as a Christian family. "The family that experiences the joy of faith, communicates it naturally. That family is the salt of the earth and light of the world; it is the leaven of society." After Mass, the Holy Father paused before an icon of the Holy Family on the steps of the Basilica, and prayed: "Holy Family of Nazareth, reawaken in our society the awareness of the sacred and inviolable character of the family, an inestimable and irreplaceable good. Let every family be a welcoming place of goodness and peace..."
We give thanks for 50 years as a parish family at St. Paul the Apostle, as we share the essence of God's loving Spirit, goodness and peace with each other and with the broader community.
May God bless you and yours,
Rev. Wencil Pavlovsky
