Safe Environment Training Renewal July 1st
All Safe Environment Training (SET) expired on June 30th.
All volunteers at St. Paul's will need to recertify for the upcoming year, taking either the Renewal (if certified for 2020) or Foundation with Background Check (if not currently certified) courses. Volunteers have until December 31, 2021 to recertify (youth volunteers have until January 31, 2022) - failure to comply will mean suspension from volunteer duties. Courses are online only this year and are available through CMG Connect.
We are now live-streaming the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at 9:30 am on Sunday mornings. Please join us via our YouTube channel here.

Daily Masses are now offered at 7:30 am Monday through Saturday. Sunday Masses are at 5 pm Saturday Vigil and 7:30 am, 9:30 am, and 12 noon on Sundays. The Church will remain open after Mass for private prayer until 12 noon.

Confessions will be Wednesdays 7:00 am to 7:20 am and Saturdays 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm in the Church.
Several precautions are in place regarding cleaning, distancing, sanitizing, etc. We will continue to update these logistics to provide a safe Church environment for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, such as:
- No gathering/socializing before or after Masses – continue to pray in silence
- Masks are optional for parishioners - mandatory for Liturgical Ministers
- All books, pens, cards, etc. will be removed from pews
- Sanitized books for use as well as a place to return ‘used’ books are available
- The bulletin now contains all songs and responses for every weekend Mass
- Special cleaning protocols
- Longer standing times during communion
- Hand sanitation stations before and after reception of the Eucharist (both on the tongue and in the hand)
New information will be posted when necessary; please continue to monitor this webpage and our Facebook page.
Our deepest gratitude for everyone’s patience and support.
