                               Adult Volunteers Needed

Did you know that many parents who are interested in becoming Catholic are able to participate in the weekly Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) sessions because parishioners volunteer to help with childcare? We are in need of 12 adult volunteers to commit to helping on just 5-6 Tuesday evenings during the school year from 6:45 – 8:45 p.m. Will you be one of the 12 to serve in Jesus’ name for the good of His precious sons and daughters? This is a wonderful way to help others as they learn about our Catholic faith. Please prayerfully consider contacting Pastoral Associate Susan Bellotti at (or 882-2109) or our RCIA Childcare Coordinator, Geae Dutson at Why not be one of the first to reply and help us with this need? Thank you!


                        Summer Service Opportunity for Our Youth

There is still a need for our St. Paul youth to help our sister parish, Holy Rosary/St. John this summer. How? By preparing and serving a mid-day meal at the Community Kitchen. This is truly a most rewarding service opportunity and is intended for those who have completed the 6th-12th grades. Up to five student volunteers are needed to work from 9:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. on the following Wednesdays this summer: July 23, July 30, and also August 6. Please call St. Paul parishioner Gary Schwarzmueller at 882-5258 to arrange to volunteer. Please note that at least one parent is required to drive and
participate with the student volunteers.
