Who belongs to the Catholic Church?

All men are called to this catholic unity of the People of God.And to it, in different ways, belong or are ordered: the Catholic faithful, others who believe in Christ, and finally all mankind, called by God's grace to salvation. Fully incorporated into the society of the Church are those who, possessing the Spirit of Christ, accept all the means of salvation given to the Church together with her entire organization, and who - by the bonds constituted by the profession of faith, the sacraments, ecclesiastical government, and communion - are joined in the visible structure of the Church of Christ, who rules her through the Supreme Pontiff and the bishops. Even though incorporated into the Church, one who does not however persevere in charity is not saved. He remains indeed in the bosom of the Church, but 'in body' not 'in heart. (Catechism #836-837)

Welcome to our parish

Mass Schedule Questionnaire

Due to the declining Mass attendance at the weekend Masses at St. Paul the Apostle Parish, the Parish Pastoral Council began discussions with Fr. John about the possibility of revising our weekend Mass schedule in the hopes of increasing attendance at Mass. Fr. John has since brought the discussion to the Parish Liturgy Committee as well. The Parish Pastoral Council, the Parish Liturgy Committee, and Fr. John are all interested in your thoughts on this matter. This questionnaire is intended to survey the members of our parish regarding possible changes to our Mass schedule. Please be aware that this is a survey, not a vote.
