The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life.” The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself… — Catechism of the Catholic Church

Our Invitation to You
We invite you to develop a Eucharistic spirituality centered on the Sacramental life. The Eucharist is the Heart of the Church. Every time we celebrate the Mass, the risen Christ makes himself present under the appearance of bread and wine. One way to grow in Eucharistic spirituality is to add a weekday Mass to your schedule. If you can’t attend Mass, make a daily act of “spiritual communion,” by saying a prayer like this one:
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You have already come, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen. — St. Alphonsus Liguori
Another way of growing in love with Christ is to participate in Eucharistic Adoration. Adoration is every Friday in the church from 5 AM to 6 PM. The first Friday and Saturday of every month, we have all night adoration in response to Pope Francis’ request in the spring of 2016 for 24 hours for the Lord. Now we have 24 Hours for the Lord every month. You can learn more about Adoration, how to make a Holy Hour, and get information about accessing the Chapel here.
What to Expect
St. Paul the Apostle is a Roman Catholic parish community committed to the New Evangelization. We have three Masses on the weekends. Our atmosphere is relaxed and you and your family can expect a welcoming, friendly environment. You’ll hear a relevant message that is about you and God and you’ll learn about how to grow in faith.
Our Masses differ in style and content. On Saturday evening for the vigil Mass, the 5:30 PM Mass has the contemporary choir singing. The 8:00 AM Mass on Sunday morning has the matins choir, which is smaller and the 10:30 AM Mass has the Traditional choir singing and usually there are more children and families present at that Mass.
Encountering and welcoming everyone, solidarity – a word that is being hidden by this culture, as if it were a bad word–solidarity and fraternity: these are what make our society truly human. Be servants of communion and of the culture of encounter! — Pope Francis
Do you have to be Catholic to attend?
Not at all! All are welcome to attend Mass with us, whether you are Christian, non-Catholic, or a non-believer. Our worship services are about the Gospel and the life of Jesus. The lessons are applicable to anyone’s life, regardless of where you are in your life’s journey.
