October Blog

Fall is in the air! Thank you God for the many blessings you bring this time of year. We had a successful Senior Luncheon on October 9th. Thanks to all the people who came out to help with this event. Happy Fall Yall

Our next event will be the drive-through Halloween Carnival on October 27th at 6:00 pm. We need bags of individually wrapped candy. Please drop off at the church office. If you would like to decorate your car and join us in the church parking lot we will provide the candy.

Our first meeting of St Paschal St Vincent de Paul Society will be on October 28th at 6:00 pm in the St Francis room.  SVdP is an international Catholic lay society that cares about and shares with the poor.  We have a chapter at our parish that will serve our geographic area.  At this 1st meeting, we plan to have at least two speakers to explain the purpose of this ministry and St. Paschal’s role.  Please attend to learn about the organization.  It should be a rewarding experience.

The Online Prayer Group is active on Flocknote.  Check it out! 

If you have not signed up for Flocknote please do by texting SPCCWM to 84576. If you have any questions please CLICK to contact either myself or Cathy Nolan.

Until November peace and everything good, 

Robin

It has been a pleasure meeting and getting to know Father Pike Thomas, our Parish Administrator. His sermons have been thought-provoking plus he’s just a lot of fun to be around! Thank you Father Pike.subscribe FN

We are excited to announce the launch of Flocknote on the weekend of September 18.  A great new way for everyone to keep up with what's going on at St Paschal. You can choose to receive texts or emails with important announcements that pertain to all parishioners. You can also choose to get news for all parish ministries and to communicate with other parishioners. Cathy Nolan and I have worked very hard on this and hope it will be a success. The sign-up is so easy and the whole thing is user-friendly! So SIGN UP!


We have started three new parish ministries and are inviting parishioners to join. Send us a Flocknote and we will be in touch with you!

  • The Welcome Committee greets people at Masses and other parish events and provides a gift basket to new parishioners and contacts them to welcome them to our parish

  • The St. Paschal Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a chapter of an international lay catholic society. Members join together to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person services to those who are in need by providing food, clothing, housing, and medical resources. St. Paschal parishioners participate in the parish chapter by volunteering their time and providing needed donations.
    •  Our first meeting agenda will include scripture, planning our fundraiser Oodles of Noodles which we hope to hold in the spring, and discussing a future social justice project.
  • The On-Line Prayer Group will provide a weekly text or email with an inspirational prayer. Later we hope to send them daily.

 Until next month, peace and everything good.  Robin

We are sad to announce that due to the Covid 19 resurgence Bishop Malone determined that our APPRECIATION CELEBRATION FOR FR. FRANK IS CANCELED AND OUR PARISH PICNIC WILL BE POSTPONED.  We continue to pray for an end to the Covid 19 Pandemic.

The Adult Faith Formation Team is planning a set of prayer events to support the parish as we face the changes here at St. Paschal. We will be contemplating what lies ahead as the Diocese makes provisions for priests to shepherd our parish without Fr. Frank Coens & the Franciscan Order.  Our prayers are also with our beloved Fr. Frank & the Friars of Province of the Sacred Heart.

I am excited to get back to work at St. Paschal after my recent heart surgery. My recovery is going well and I will be back in the church office on Monday, August 23.  -- Robin Ford Cardneau, Ministry Coordinator, St. Paschal Church

whats going onWe have a lot going on at St Paschal! Upcoming events will be the appreciation gathering for Father Frank on August 27 after the 11:30 mass. We also have our parish picnic on September 12 after the 10 o'clock mass and it is going to be a blast! We will have games and even karaoke with Mike McKinzie!

We have been working hard on Flocknote which is a texting/email platform to help us better communicate with parishioners. At present we are asking our ministry leaders to have their members sign up. Late in August, we will have a Sunday launch where the whole parish will be asked to sign up to receive text/emails from our church.
