Groups

Our Parish would not be the same without our various groups and organizations.  To read more about each group below please click on the plus sign.

  • Pastoral Council

    This group is very vital to the life of the Parish. The Council is formed by the Pastor, the other Priests, and twelve members elected from the parish community.
  • Finance Committee

    This group is important to the structure of the Parish. Five parishioners belong to it and have meetings with the Pastor at least every other month. They evaluate and discuss various projects and financial matters within the Church.
  • Youth Group

    St. Paschal’s Youth Group seeks to reach out to young people in order to reveal the relevance of the Gospel in their lives by integrating prayer, fellowship, service, catechises and the Sacraments in order to foster their love for Jesus Christ and encourage their call to holiness as members of the Church. This group is overseen by the Youth Pastoral Team and the pastor. They have fellowship activities each Wednesday from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
  • Charismatic Group

    This English speaking prayer group is affiliated with the Charismatic movement and meets every Monday after the 7:00pm Mass. Two hours of singing, praising, sharing and listening sessions are the special moments that help develop a deeper awareness of the presence of the Holy Spirit. Every third Monday of the month, a Healing Mass is held at the church at 7:00pm.
  • Filipino Support Group

    This group works to help the Filipino parishioners of our Parish, especially the newcomers to help establish them into our community. They meet every forth Sunday of the month at 5:30pm in the Parish Hall.
  • Knights of Columbus

    The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Roman Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded in the United States in 1882, it is named in honor of Christopher Columbus.

    The primary motivation for the Order was to be a mutual benefit society. As a parish priest in an immigrant community, McGivney saw what could happen to a family when the breadwinner died, and wanted to provide insurance to care for the widows and orphans left behind. He had to temporarily leave his seminary studies to care for his family when his father died. In the late 19th century, Catholics were regularly excluded from labor unions and other organizations that provided social services. In addition, Catholics were either barred from many of the popular fraternal organizations, or, as in the case of Freemasonry, forbidden from joining by the Catholic Church itself. McGivney wished to provide them an alternative. He also believed that Catholicism and fraternalism were not incompatible and wished to found a society that would encourage men to be proud of their Catholic heritage.
