Saint Pascal News and Events
Dear Friends at Saint Pascal,
I am still basking in the joy of our beautiful festivities as I move on to my next mission in ministry. Saint Pascal has been a blessing in my life. In my homily and remarks at the dinner-dance, I struggled to articulate my feelings but the words fall short. I thank everyone who worked so hard to make the Masses, receptions and dinner-dance such a joyful moment in my life. Now I go forward to a new adventure at Saint Clement. It is a very different parish from Saint Pascal, but only in some respects. The most important commonality is our faith in God and our call to serve His People. Both parishes are now welcoming new pastors. Please welcome Father Dees as you would want Saint Clement to welcome me. I will be only about seven miles away. As I said at Mass, whenever we gather around the altar of the Eucharist, everyone is there, no matter where we may be. God bless you. See you at the Eucharist!
Love and affection,
Father Paul Seaman... Saint Clement Church, 642 W. Deming Place, Chicago, IL 60614
Eucharistic Adoration - Thursdays
Each Thursday from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, Saint Pascal hosts the place for quiet reflection - Eucharistic Adoration in Church. The purpose of Eucharistic Adoration is to give every Catholic an opportunity to spend time with our Eucharistic Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament. Everyone is welcome and invited to spend some time on Thursdays for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour or more if so desired. It calms one’s soul, brings peace to one’s heart and deepens one’s relationship with the Lord. Making time with Jesus may be the gift you can give yourself.
