40 Days for Life Campaign
Saint Paul the Apostle Parish has participated in the 40-day campaigns before. This Lent the parishioners are encouraged to participate in praying in front of the Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinic in San Luis Obispo. This does place a burden on those who participate—time is required; concentration on God is the focus; there will be distractions; the weather may be a trial; and more. The benefit may not ever be known by those participating. Please call Celine at 805-478-1093 or email her at You can still sign up.
Altar and Rosary Society Bake Sale
The annual Bake Sale before Easter will be held next Saturday and Sunday, March 28th and 29th. If you can bake even the simplest, tasty treat, please consider baking and donating the item(s) to the Altar and Rosary Society effort. This helps to cover the costs of maintaining the sanctuary, the altar and the church. Baked goods may be delivered after 3:00 p.m. on Saturday the 28th or before the Sunday morning Masses. Our thanks for your interest and efforts. Outright donations are greatly appreciated.
Annual Ministries Appeal
There are a group of ministries which are coordinated by Bishop Garcia and his office. These usually cannot be accomplished at the parish level. So this annual appeal supports the efforts which benefit all the parishes. Please consider this a type of Lenten penance or almsgiving. Responses can come any time. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOUR RESPONSE GOES TO THE PARISH OFFICE. This is the only way to insure a DOUBLE checking of the contributions—first at the parish, then at the Bishop’s office. For those who are not registered and who received no information directly from the Bishop, there are commitment envelopes and descriptive brochures in the rear of the church. We would hope to have a high level of participation in this appeal.
Coffee and Donuts
Coffee and donuts will be available Sunday morning in the hall. Please join your fellow parishioners after the Sunday morning Masses. Introduce yourself to someone you don’t know.

Abstinence During Lent
The Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence. Abstinence is required of all Catholics over the age of 14 (no upper limit). This means that no meat or meat products (soups, gravies, consommés, etc.) are to be eaten on the Fridays of Lent. This regulation is considered to be a serious obligation for all Catholics. However, those who are ill, pregnant, on medication or special diets for health concerns or those who must work at extremely physical jobs may be exempt from abstinence.
Fish Fry at Saint Patrick Parish
The Italian Catholic Federation is offering the Lenten fish fry at Saint Patrick Hall on Fridays from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m.
Stations of the Cross
The special Lenten celebration of the Stations of the Cross will be held each Friday of Lent at 1:00 p.m. in the church.
Divine Mercy Sunday
The special celebrations for this Sunday honoring God’s Mercy will take place at Saint Patrick Parish on April 12th from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. The more complete schedule of activities will be printed at Easter.
