Dear Parishioners and Guests:
(To read Fr. Rivera's welcome letter in Spanish, please CLICK HERE )
Welcome to our parish and this website. It is my pleasure to invite you to grow with us, pray with us and live the sacramental life of the church as followers of Jesus Christ here at San Pablo Catholic Church.
This parish family of San Pablo is a beautiful example of what is a parish community in the 21st Century. Our parish is a living body that believes, lives and celebrates the Mystery of the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ. Our parish is becoming a multilinguistic community. We celebrate in English and soon in Spanish, the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist and other sacraments.
In essences, our parish is Eucharistic and missionary. We are born from the Eucharist, we live for the Eucharist and we are sent forth by the Eucharist. Canon 211 of the Code of Canon law emphatically states: “All the Christian faithful have the duty and right to work so that the divine message of salvation more and more reaches all people in every age and in every land.” So we are sent from the Eucharist to go and proclaim the good news to all.
As you read the descriptions of our living community and its ministries, please consider sharing your gifts from God by joining them. If any member of our pastoral ministry, or I may be of assistance, please call 305-289-0636.
I want to thank all who presently minister to our parish community; may God continue to bless our parish and all of our efforts as we work together to make present His Kingdom among us. Again, welcome to our parish family and our new website: May the power of the Holy Spirit within us continue to guide us as members of the Mystic Body of Christ – the Church.
Rev. Luis Rivera
