Parish News

All children preparing for First Eucharist are asked to attend a morning retreat on Saturday, March 3rd from 9:30 am– 12:30 pm. Each child should be accompanied by one parent. We open the retreat in prayer in our Church, and then have the opportunity for liturgical "show and tell", and "taste and see" with unconsecrated hosts. We will then move to the school cafeteria, where children will pick-up their materials for the day and banners.

Parents will attend their own session where we will answer all of your questions about First Eucharist and logistics for the celebration.

We look forward to seeing you there!

On Friday, March 9th, the children of the parish, along with the Children's Choir, will lead the parish in praying the Stations of the Cross.

Stations will begin at 7:00 pm however, we ask that children participating arrive at 6:00 pm to read through their parts and prepare for the evening. Please email jmcguire@stpaulsofprinceton.org if your child is interested in participating.

This winter the St Paul Bible Study groups will read and discuss the second part of St John's Gospel.

They take us deep into the meaning of our celebration of Easter, 2018. You can select either a Wednesday morning discussion group meeting from 10:00 to 11:30 am or a Thursday evening group meeting from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. The first meeting will be January 24, the last March 22. All are welcome, including anyone who was not in the group when we read the first part of John's Gospel.
