This Week

Announcements from our bulletin of November 22, 2020

Our Mission is to embrace God's Loving Mercy, embracing our diversity as we serve the needs of others.

Jesus is the mighty King who reigns in our hearts.

There are compelling images of Christ on this solemn feast today. One is of the shepherd who lovingly and humbly cares for his sheep. The other is of a mighty king, ruler of the universe, and heaven and earth. In this image, he judges on how well we cared for one another, saying, Whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.

When someone you care about hurts you, you can hold on to anger, resentment and thoughts of revenge or embrace forgiveness and move forward.

What are the benefits of forgiving someone?

Letting go of grudges and bitterness can make way for improved health and peace of mind. Forgiveness can lead to:

  • Healthier relationships
  • Improved mental health
  • Less anxiety, stress and hostility
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Fewer symptoms of depression
  • A stronger immune system
  • Improved heart health
  • Improved self-esteem

After five years of music ministry at San Pablo Parish, it is time for me to move to a new position. I was fortunate to accept a music director position at St. Peter's Church which is very close to my home. I will share in the excitement of a new church building set to open by Easter!

I wish everyone the best and hope (once the virus has subsided) that you will continue the wonderful singing. That has always been my main focus as director- to encourage "active and conscious participation" through prayer and song.

To everything there is a season- a time to meet and a time to part. The singing and music making will continue in our hearts, minds and on our tongues. "Since love is Lord of heaven and earth, how can WE keep from singing!"

God bless you,
JACK LOUDEN

San Pablo Catholic Woman's Club and K.A.I.R. get together monthly to feed the homeless.

For several years, on every third Friday, The San Pablo Catholic Woman's Club (SPCWC) provides a luncheon at our local homeless shelter. Volunteers create meals consisting of a main dish, two sides, and dessert.

With the collaboration of K.A.I.R. and San Pablo Church facilities, this incredible team of women ensures that our community is well-fed with warm food. Pulled pork sandwiches, meatloaves and, this month, egg casseroles are just some of the meals in our arsenal of home cooked food.

Everyone deserves a good meal!

Many members have provided meals over the years. This summer, SPCWC wants to thank our newest volunteers, Leslie, Carmen, Jim, Julie, Phillip, and Paul for helping during the COVID -19 pandemic.

If you would like to help with third Friday luncheons, please call Terry Rahn at (305) 289-2142.

SPCWC gathers monthly to grow in faith and Catholic community.

A big "thank you" to all of those participating in online giving with WeShare! Online giving has been a big help to our parish. San Pablo Parish has received more consistent donations and been able to re-prioritize office tasks. WeShare saves the administrative staff valuable time with its ability to accept credit and debit cards and to make automatic withdrawals from checking and savings accounts. This means more time to serve you and our mission as parish. No matter how you give, your gifts are always appreciated! If you have not yet made the switch to online giving, we invite you to consider doing so. Online giving offers our parish a stable, sustainable future.

We know that you share in this vision and we're excited about giving our parishioners many ways to participate in our growth as a parish family.
Thank you for your support!

Father, all the elements of nature obey Your commands.
Protect us and all Your people
During this season of storms and hurricanes.
Calm our fears and help us to prepare

And help us to minister to each other
