Saturday Evening Confessions
The Vicar for Clergy just emailed to all priests the Archdiocese July “Clergy Change List.” The list was 17 pages long. It is shocking to learn that more and more parishes in the Archdiocese are becoming single priest parishes. Because of this trend it is often necessary to curtail some services to parishioners. Most Saturdays here at St. Paschal’s are filled with a variety of weddings, quinceañeras, funerals, baptisms, hospital calls, school events as well as three regularly scheduled Masses and afternoon confessions. The schedule will only become busier when other programs begin anew in September. Another serious concern is Fr. Joe’s health - let us all continue to pray for Fr. Joe. Because of our limited resources, and after consulting with a variety of staff members and parishioners, we reluctantly decided that Saturday night confessions will be discontinued. Saturday afternoon availability for confessions will remain from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. If there is an absolute need to come to confession outside of the Saturday afternoon times then other arrangements can be made. We hope that you will understand. Let us all pray for more vocations to the Priesthood so that more men will respond to serve in the ordained ministry and be able to better serve the needs of Catholics every-where. The final Saturday evening confessions at St. Paschal’s will be celebrated on August 9th.
Fr. Michael Rocha, Pastor

Come and spend an hour with the Lord
My soul thirsts for You, My Lord"

"As we come to the Eucharist and recieve the "bread of heaven," let us continue to remember that God is involved in our everyday life, equipping us to get through whatever needs to be endured. When things seem to be unraveling around the edges, let the Holy Spirit guide you step by step and know that the light of Jesus shines on you continually. "- Friar Joe Scerbo, S.A.
"The chapel is a peaceful place to contemplate the presence of God. It's a place where we are likely to hear God's will for us, to find the direction our life needs, to experience God's love, and to return to our world renewed and refreshed." - Fr. Dave Heney
