Saint Margaret Parish with Fr. Paul Fagan
March 4, 5 and 6, 7:30 p.m. and after daily Mass at Saint Margaret with Fr. Paul Fagan. The theme of the mission is Walking by Faith: A Spirituality for Living Now. The Monday and Tuesday morning presentations will be the same as the evening presentations.
Fr. Paul is energized by the ministry of preaching, and he always hopes to give people God’s Good Word through his preaching and his prayerful celebrations within the sacramental life of the Church. Through his studies in preaching, Fr. Paul sees himself as a preacher who is a friend of God, and thus he wants to share the gift of his friend, God, with everyone he meets. Fr. Paul wants to bring God’s Good Word, the Good News, to people as he celebrates each preaching moment. One of this heroes has always been the Apostle Paul, a traveling preacher himself. Sharing his faith with others in a genuine way, as St. Paul did, is Fr. Paul’s lifelong goal. He works at being a quiet, peaceful man with an interest in people and the goodness and joy they can bring to life
