Election of New Minister Provincial
Father Victor, the current pastor of Saint Paul the Apostle Par- ish, has been elected the Minister Provincial of the Province of Saint Joseph of Cupertino. His duties involve the care of the Conventual Friars in California and in Viet Nam. By mid-June, Father Victor will have completed his nominations for superiors, pastors, associate pastors and special positions. The new pastor of Saint Paul the Apostle Parish will be announced at that time.
Preceding Us to the Father
On April 17th, Federico Garces, Jr. passed away. Please pray for his eternal repose and for the large family that mourns his loss.
Construction in Progress
The fourth phase of construction around the parish hall will begin soon. Please be attentive to caution tape and other warning signs. When Phase IV is complete, the workers will move into Phase V. In the last phase, parking may be a real problem. All should be completed in about two months.
Annual Ministries Appeal
The Annual Ministries Appeal is still very much in progress for this year. Many aspects of the operation of the Diocese of Monterey have no direct connection to the parishes. The Bishop coordinates a number of offices and ministries that are available to all the parishes and schools of the Diocese. This special appeal addresses these needed activities of any diocese. The registered parishioners have received information about the appeal in the mail. For those who haven’t received the brochure and response envelope, these are available in the rear of the church. We encourage ALL parishioners to participate as each one is able to participate. PLEASE MAKE ALL CHECKS PAYABLE TO THE DIOCESE OF MONTEREY AND RETURN ALL RESPONSE ENVELOPES TO THE PARISH OFFICE.
Parish Goal $26,000
Amount Pledged $20,770
Amount Paid $15,445
Families Participating 52
The first half of the fiscal year is September 1, 2017 to February 28, 2018. The parish income was $249,933.29; the total expense cost was $344,612.06. The large deficit was caused by the total replacement of the rear parking lot. The Friars and staff are truly grateful for the outstanding and wonderful support of the parishioners and visitors.

Second Collection—Next Weekend
A combined national collection for the Catholic Home Missions and for the Black and Indian Missions will be taken up next weekend. This collection will support those parts of the United States where Catholics are few in number, located in poor areas and cannot sustain a full-time priest. Often a priest in these areas is assigned to a vast area. Churches cannot be built without concerted, national cooperation. A basic living and salary helps the missionary to be rugged and resourceful (e.g., Alaska, Oklahoma, the Great Plains, etc.). Among the special places in the United States where missions are set up for the Black and Indian Catholics, a special emphasis will come from this collection.
Knights of Columbus Spaghetti Dinner and Auction
On Saturday, May 5th, the Knights of Columbus will sponsor the annual spaghetti dinner. This fundraiser and auction will be held from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. The dinner costs $15.00 for adults; take-out orders are possible; dinner service starts at 5:45 p.m. Tickets will be sold after all Masses this weekend.
Annual Mother’s Day Novena
The novena of Masses will begin on May 14th. For a living woman, please take the envelope with the blue printing (this envelope contains a greeting card); for a deceased woman, please take the envelope with black printing. Please return en- velopes as soon as possible.
