Third Sunday of Lent
March 24, 2019

In spite of a huge increase in taxes, for the past three years, we have found ways to decrease our parish expenses. We installed energy efficient lights, water efficient toilets, we received donations of needed supplies and we renegotiated several contracts to get better prices. Another measure to lower our expenses is to reduce the hours of several employees. Beginning in April 2019, several employees have agreed to voluntarily reduce their hours. As a result, the hours for the Parish Office will be as follows:
(Office closed Mondays)
Tuesdays from 10:30am-5:00pm
Wednesdays through Fridays from 9:00am-5:00pm.

We will continue to look for ways to reduce our expenses, but provide for the needs of our parish. We also need your help to increase the income of our parish to meet the ongoing expenses. Please consider enrolling in Guarded Giving, our electronic automatic giving program so that we can be assured of continuous income for our parish needs. Support our parish in life and even after death by naming St. Paul Church as a beneficiary in your will. As your salary increases, please remember to increase your contribution to our Church. Participate in and promote our parish activities so that we can unite as a family of faith and ensure our future together.
Please extend a welcome to Mr. Patrick Please extend a welcome to Mr. Patrick Early, our new maintenance worker. He has a lot of experience and comes with a great enthusiasm to care for our parish grounds and property. He begins work on Monday, March 25th and will work with Mike Tagliavia during his last week trying to glean the wealth of information of our parish he has acquired over the years.

Tercer Domingo de Cuaresma
24 de marzo de 2019

A pesar de un gran aumento en los impuestos, durante los últimos tres años, hemos encontrado formas de disminuir los gastos de nuestra parroquia. Instalamos luces de eficiencia energética, inodoros con uso eficiente del agua, recibimos donaciones de los suministros necesarios y renegociamos varios contratos para obtener mejores precios. Otra medida para reducir nuestros gastos es reducir las horas de varios empleados. A partir de abril de 2019, varios empleados acordaron reducir voluntariamente sus horas. Como resultado, las horas para la
Oficina Parroquial serán las siguientes:

Lunes: Cerrada
Martes de 10:30am a 5:00pm
De miércoles a viernes de 9:00am a 5:00pm

Continuaremos buscando formas de reducir nuestros gastos, pero satisfaciendo las necesidades de nuestra parroquia. También necesitamos su ayuda para aumentar los ingresos de nuestra parroquia para cubrir los gastos actuales. Por favor, considere inscribirse en Guarded Giving, nuestro programa electrónico de donaciones automáticas para que podamos asegurarnos de un ingreso continuo para las necesidades de nuestra parroquia. Apoye a nuestra parroquia en la vida e incluso después de la muerte al nombrar a la Iglesia de San Pablo como beneficiario en su testamento. A medida que aumenta su salario, recuerde aumentar su contribución a nuestra Iglesia.
