Transition Note

The Transition Process can take a minimum of 18-24 months. St. Paul’s is in the Separation and Planning Stage during which we are encouraged to reflect on the past and dream about where the future will lead us. This time is an opportunity to see where God calls us to go and should be looked on as a gift.

youth group

We are 5th – 12th grade boys & girls (parishioners and not!), that get together once a month for activities that foster fellowship, outreach, and good ol’ fashioned socialization! We play games, we communicate in an open environment, we play more games, eat pizza and the evening passes by quite quickly. We hope you’ll join us at our meetings. Feel free to invite friends.
