What a thrill to celebrate 150 years of the Catholic faith at St. Paul’s Church here in San Pablo on Sunday, June 27. From the time of the Gold Rush the parish has been continuously offering Masses, First Communions, Confirmations, and Marriages. The whole Catholic faith has been here for all the many different immigrant groups that have come into one place, united in Christ.
I congratulate the Conventual Franciscan Friars who for the last 30 years have supplied priests and brothers here. May God bless them and the whole Parish.
