Thank you to the 270 parishioners who have paid for their Catholic Messenger subscription! 

Did you know that The Catholic Messenger is a bargain at $29 per year?  You will receive 50 issues, that's 58 cents an issue! 

 Did you know that our Catholic Messenger bill is for 90% of our parish census?  That means we will pay approximately $21,377 for the Catholic Messenger this year. That's why it's so important for you to do your part. 

Did you know that you can receive The Catholic Messenger electronically?  This means you can read it on your computer, iPad, Tablet or smartphone! 

Did you know that The Catholic Messenger is 133 years old?  It was established one year after the Diocese of Davenport was founded!  Payment of your subscription will help ensure that this 133 year old tradition will continue. 

Did you know that several parishioners from St. Paul's church and school have been featured in The Catholic Messenger?  Be sure to read it each week so you don't miss out on any stories featuring our parish!

 Did you know that you can give a gift subscription to someone?  It would be the perfect gift for a friend, college student or family member who has moved out of the diocese. 

If you haven't sent in your subscription payment, please do so today!  And to those who have already sent payment, thank you again for your prompt payment!


I joined St. Paul's staff in Sept. 2014 and thoroughly enjoy working with all of the staff and parishioners at St. Paul's church.  There are so many different ways one can be involved at St. Paul's, it's very exciting to see all of the different programs and opportunities!   For your convenience, we offer electronic giving and electronic payments for school tuition. If you ever have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me. 
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
