Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Public Masses have resumed. If you are over 65 years of age, under any health condition, or you don't feel safe to go back to Mass now which has been increased to 50% capacity, you are dispensed until the end of August, 2020. Also, you still can watch our weekend Masses at 5:00 PM Vigil and 11:00 AM Sunday right here or on our Facebook. Our confession schedule will resume beginning Saturday, June 27, at 3:30PM in the Church.
To all parishioners at Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church and visitors: Beginning this weekend, Saturday, July 18, anyone comes to Mass expect to wear a face mask for our own safety and the safety of others around us. We will also have someone at the entrance to check your temperature before you enter the Church. Deacon and myself will also wear a mask to come in and to leave.
 
 

 

Saint Paul the Apostle
Pray for us.
HAPPY FEAST DAY

Welcome to our parish web site, a parish in the Diocese of Corpus Christi.

On this site there is information about our church, location, and parish community. You will also find our history, and the most important aspect of our life together, the celebration of the sacraments.

My dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

There are 197 Dioceses, included in 32 Archdioceses, in America. The Diocese of Corpus Christi with the beautiful name of the Body of Christ was created by Pope Saint Pius X in 1912.

Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church was founded in 1967 by Bishop Thomas Drury on the feast of Saint Peter and Saint Paul with Father Robert Freeman as its first pastor. Under Father Freeman, the church property was obtained and the first church, rectory, classrooms, and office space was built.

Under the leadership of the second pastor, Monsignor Mark Chamberlin, the present church and Adoration Chapel, the parish hall, the present rectory and offices were built and the old church reconfigured into classrooms. He also gave a portion of parish property to the Religious Missionaries of Saint Dominic to build a convent and they then built Our Lady of Rosary Catholic School.  Under these first two pastors and a few pastors after, the parish community grew significantly. As of August 2017, our community consists of one thousand twenty-seven families registered to our parish.

As a community of faith, we want to welcome all who want to share our faith under the universal guidance of our Pontiff, Pope Francis, and under the guidance and leadership of our local Most Reverend, Bishop Michael Mulvey, the eighth bishop of the Diocese of Corpus Christi.

Saint Paul the Apostle Catholic Church exists for the sole purpose of carrying out the Mission of Jesus the Christ, the salvation of all humankind, by living and spreading the Good News. Our Church exists to extend the hands and feet of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring witness to the presence of Christ in the Flour Bluff area of Corpus Christi.

If:

      1. You have a child that needs to be baptized, to receive the Body and the Blood of Christ, to be reconciled with God and with one another through the Sacrament of Reconciliation, or to receive the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit through the Sacrament of Confirmation

      2. You know someone who is sick, elderly, about to go through surgery, or even dying and needs to receive the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick

      3. You or someone you know needs to celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony or to have their marriage resolved and to make it right in the eyes of God in His church

      4. You or someone you know would like to discern the Sacrament of Holy Orders to the priesthood or to live a religious life as monk or nun

 

then we are here to walk with you through the Sacraments of the Catholic Church.

We come into this world not by incident, by chance, by predestination, nor by any force, but we come into this world out of God’s love. So much does he love us that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to come in his full humanity to show us the way, the truth, and the life. He also comes to us in his full divinity to bring us back to God the Father.

Saint Paul experienced God’s love in his conversion; we are invited to follow his footsteps. Stop waiting, just join.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Joseph T Nguyen, Pastor
