Caring for Creation

Mary Ann Holtz of our Counseling Ministry has written a paper, Ten Action Steps for Individuals and Families Responding to the Current Global Crises of Energy, Environment, and Economy, Discovering Active Hope, with practical ways to act on those calls.

Partners With Haiti Lenten Appeal 2013
Again this year we are asking for your support for our work with St. Paul's twin parish, St. Isidore, in Haiti.
The Good Samaritan clinic has operated continuously since September, 2010. Because of its successful track-record and its remote location, we are now beginning a five-year transition plan for it to become a partially self-sustaining affiliate of Lagonav's only hospital. As part this plan, we are redistributing some attention and resources to other very critical needs at St. Isidore and its parish school. Return cards in the pews contain more information.
Our work is made possible only by your tremendous generosity. Thank you!

Diocese's Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA) for 2013
All parishioners are urged to make a financial pledge to the APA. The APA funds the apostolic works of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, including
education of seminarians; support for Catholic schools, Catholic Charities; professional support for parishes on real estate, insurance,
legal, construction, and administrative isues; support for the Holy Father, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and Florida
Catholic Conference; and offices for religious formation and liturgy. Any funds given by St. Paul's parishioners to the APA reduces
dollar-for-dollar the parish's assessment obligation to the diocese, thus directly benefitting the parish financially. To make a pledge,
