MASS SIGN UPS- Please remember to call or email the parish office to sign up for Mass until further notice. The Thanksgiving Day Mass will be this Thursday at 9:00 AM. Phone, 503-633-4611 or email email@example.com. We are limited to 25 people at each of our masses.
The latest editions of the CATHOLIC SENTINEL AND THE WORD AMOUNG US are now available at the Church entrance and on the front porch of the rectory.
CATHOLIC CAMPAIGN FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT - Thank you for your generous support last week for the collection for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development! As a parish, we raised $182 to support those on the margins who are living in poverty in the United States. If you missed the collection, it's not too late to give!
RETIREMENT FUND FOR RELIGIOUS- Help our elders. In good times and in bad, senior Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests have dedicated themselves to service and acts of mercy. Today, they pray for an aching world. Yet years of serving for little or no pay have left their religious communities without enough retirement savings. Your gift to the Retirement Fund for Religious helps provide medications, nursing care, and other necessities. Please be generous. This collection will be taken December 5/6, 2020. Checks may be made payable to St. Paul Parish, included RFR on the memo line.
