Parish life would not be complete without opportunities for hospitality and fellowship. Throughout the year, there are receptions held after various events. Some of these include the Basilica Music Series, farewell receptions, fundraising events, and parish missions. Parishioners participate in the reception committee by donating baked goods and refreshments. Some provide set up and take down for the events, while others serve as hosts/hostesses at the events.
Lord God, you appointed Paul your apostle to preach the good news of salvation to the nations. May his example and prayers inspire the faithful of our parish to be more fully Alive in Christ.
Fill our hearts with the spirit of your charity so that we may please you in our thoughts, words and deeds and be witnesses to hope that does not disappoint.
May the prayers of St. Paul and all the saints be our constant encouragement so that we may walk worthily as disciples of your Son.
