Now to each one
the manifestation of the Spirit
is given for the common good.
(1 Corinthians 12: 7)(NIV)
In Eucharistic Prayer III, we pray to the Father:
Grant that we, who are nourished by the Body and Blood of
your Son and filled with his Holy Spirit, may become one
body, one spirit in Christ. In Eucharistic Prayer II, we pray
that we may be gathered into one by the Holy Spirit.
We thus see that the Holy Spirit is a unifier. The
Holy Spirit works to bring us out of our selfishness and
isolation and bind us to God and to one another.
How good and pleasant it is when God's people live
together in unity! (Psalm 133:1) We human beings are
meant to be social animals, and our highest good is
realized in social relationships. That is what the Spirit seeks
to engender, promote, and purify----our social relationships.
As God said, in Genesis, it is not good for the man to be
alone. By our very nature, we need one another. We will
only find fulfillment when we work with the Spirit to promote
a society where all are welcome, where all belong, and
where all help, encourage, and support one another.
Blessed Pentecost to all!
Msgr. Robert C. Gibbons, Pastor

First Holy Communion was celebrated on
Saturday morning, May 7th at St. Paul’s for 46
of our parish youngsters. Thank you to their
parents, godparents, and all those who have
worked so faithfully to bring them to this day’s
glorious sacramental encounter with the Lord Jesus. For
as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you
proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes. (1 Cor.
11:26). Congratulations to our First Communicants:

Update on stained-glass window project. The crew has
been working this past week on the exterior of the large
windows on the north side. This work is essential for the
long-term preservation of these precious windows. The
total amount donated so far for this project is $84,300, with
twenty-eight (28) parish families participating. This covers
about 90% of the total cost. Gifts in any amount are
appreciated. The full cost to sponsor restoration of a large
window is $8,000; the smaller window sponsorship is
$5,000. Windows still available for full sponsorship are:
Finding in the Temple; Agony in the Garden (smaller
window); and Descent of the Holy Spirit. Dedicatory
plaques are available for full sponsorships. Checks should
be made payable to St. Paul’s Church, and sent to Msgr.
Gibbons’ attention.
