Saint Pascal News and Events
Watch The Love Grow
This year, we are pleased to announce that we will once again be reaching out to help people in need as we "Watch the Love Grow". Beginning the first weekend in Advent, parishioners will be given the opportunity to help the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico by purchasing a red ornament following the weekend Masses. For every $5 donated, an ornament will be placed on one of the trees in the Sanctuary. Please help us fill the trees with a $5 donation and "Watch the Love Grow".
Sacrament of Reconciliation
During the season of Advent, Individual Confessions will be offered on Saturday, December 16 at 9:00 AM, Thursday, December 21 from 3:00 to 6:30 PM, Friday, December 22 from 5:00 to 9:00 PM, and Saturday, December 23 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM, and 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
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.
Connect Now - Connecting People and the Church
Our parish families have a wonderful opportunity to update personal information on our database ConnectNow or register as a new parishioner. Along with this opportunity, families will also be able to view their contributions, print tax letters (when they become available, saving the parish postage during tax season!). Families may choose to upload pictures too. All additions or changes are reviewed and approved by parish staff members.
Along with the above features, ministers (Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion, Altar Servers and Ushers) will also be able to communicate the dates they are available to serve, when they will be out of town, and view their schedule or their children’s schedules.
Register today by logging on to ConnectNow by clicking on the "Connect Now" button on the right side of this page. If you have any questions, please call the parish office at 773-725-7641.
