The goal of the 2018 Annual Cardinal's Appeal is to help the Church do its work of being light of hope and faith and to serve the needs of God's people.  This work includes caring for the elderly; feeding the hungry; passing on our faith; and, supporting parishes that need help to keep their doors open so their parishioners can celebrate the joy of Christ among us communally.  The work also includes advocating for the dignity of all life, educating our future priests; and supporting our retired religious priests, nuns, and brothers.

- Beer Swap with Apostolist
Sunday June 3, 2018: 6:30-8:30 pm
We are once again planning to join with the young adults of Apostolist for a Beer Swap after the 5:15PM Mass on June 3rd. Bring a six pack of your favorite brew to share. We also hope to have Father Mark-David on hand to give a brief introduction to the Parish's upcoming program on Pope Francis' recent apostolic exhortation and to answer all questions theological and spiritual. Please join us!
 
 
 
Pope Francis recently declared that the Monday immediately following Pentecost is to be celebrated as the "Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary: Mother of the Church." This action emphasizes the central role that Mary and all mothers have in the Church. Keeping in mind the caring role of our Holy Mother, and the crucial place that she has within the life of a family, it is deeply concerning when this relationship is fractured or broken in any fashion.
 
 
Such is the case today when we look to our southern border, where migrant families who are escaping various forms of violence and persecution in their homeland are being routinely separated. Since October 2017, over 700 children have been separated from their parents and rendered "unaccompanied," including over 100 children under the age of four. On May 4, 2018, DHS stated that it will refer all individuals who cross the border without authorization for criminal prosecution, including adult members of family units. If implemented, this policy will undoubtedly lead to a drastic increase in incidences of family separation. On this day honoring Mary, we urge you to think about the families that will face forcible separation.

CALL TO ACTION
Send a message to Congress and ask that they protect immigrant children and families seeking safety and shelter from violence by keeping these families together.
Send the following message to your Member of Congress:
Dear Representative,
Children are vulnerable and should not be separated from their parents. The family is a foundational element of Catholic teaching and family unity is a cornerstone of our American immigration system.
 
Separating parents from their children will not deter families from seeking safety and security in the U.S. Such a policy will not cure the pervasive root causes of migration existing in the violent areas of Central America. Furthermore, a policy of separating families at the border will be extremely costly to the U.S. taxpayer, costing hundreds of dollars/night per family.
 
As a Catholic, I urge you to recognize the importance of family unity and use your oversight capabilities to:
(1) Tell DHS Not to Separate Families
(2) Prevent DHS from Receiving Funding for This Harmful and Costly Practice
(3) Propose More Humane Solutions, Such As Alternatives to
Detention.
 
Thank you

Poets@StPaul Gathering
Monday, June 4, 2018: 7 to 9pm 
 
In the spiritual life "emptiness" is the space we make for something further - mystery. We are not to solve anything; we are just to let the mystery draw us further. There is something beyond us and there is someone to receive that belief. In the process of accepting mystery, we enlarge our own possibilities. Otherwise we are circumscribed by self alone
(see The Soul's Religion p 25-26).
All are welcome to this event: poetry writers, poetry lovers and the poetry curious. We meet, read and discuss at the parish center of St Paul the Apostle Church, 405 W 59th Street 
(behind Time Warner Center).
Free and open to the public.
Rejoice and Be Glad 
Monday, June 5, 2018: 7pm
