We as Catholic Christians are called to proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom of God. St. Paul is part of a Collaborative Evangelization Commission. We support the work of spreading the Gospel with traditional and modern media sources. Our primary goal is to spread God's Word through the work of the Holy Spirit and the support of the USCCB document "Go and Make Disciples."
In keeping with the focus of the Archdiocese Synod priorities and responding to the St. Paul Parish Survey, the Evangelization and Formation Commission's efforts in 2016 -2017 will be concentrated on catechesis for adults through scripture and tradition.
The committee also plans to promote small faith sharing groups with a focus on discipleship. Evening scripture presentations and small group scripture studies will give the novice and seasoned scripture reader a better understanding of scripture, tradition and the church. Child care will be provided (at no cost) for evening programs when requested in advance.
Please consider joining the Evangelization Commission, for the opinions of all makes for a better evangelizing effort. New members are always welcome! You are important! You are invited to walk with us on this endeavor. Please contact Ania Momot at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Plans are also underway for a Parish Newsletter. Please keep watching for more information.
As a gift to the parishioners, St. Paul the Apostle purchased a subscription to FORMED.

You’ll find presenters like Dr. Tim Gray, Dr. Edward Sri, Dr. Mary Healey, Chris Stefanick, Dr. Scott Hahn, Bishop Robert Barron and a lot more. They are all part of our parish subscription. It truly is the Catholic faith - on demand.
It is easy to be FORMED. Go to formed.org. You should see the registration box for parishioners.
