Welcome, or as we say in Ireland “Cead Mile Failte” — A Hundred Thousand Welcomes! Thank you for visiting our website for St. Paul Catholic Church in Flowood MS. We invite you to pray and worship with us here at St. Paul in Flowood! Please visit us often and stay in touch with us!

In the prayerful practice of Lectio Divina, God brings His Word to life within us. As we read a passage of Scripture, we trust completely that God will give us a “Word” in the text. If we listen carefully to Him and accept the promptings of His Holy Spirit, He will teach us what He wants us to understand about that Word. It really works!

I felt God lead me in the same way to these words:

January’s word — INTENTION

February’s word — INVITATION

March’s word — PURPOSE

April’s word — ACCESSIBLE

May’s word — PERCEPTION

June’s word — DETACHMENT

July’s word — ENCOUNTER

August’s word — GENEROSITY

September’s word — LISTENING

October’s word — ENTHUSIASM

November’s word — HOSPITALITY

Beginning in January, we are offering the experience of Discovering Christ to all parishioners.

During the Discovering Christ sessions, we will explore more deeply important questions such as:
What is the meaning of Life?
* What does Jesus want us to know?
Why do I need a Savior?
*Why do I need the Church?
Who is the Holy Spirit?

 Registration limited to 104 participants!

For more information:

Our January sessions are full, but we are offering a second round of Discovering Sessions beginning in March. Check back here in December to register for the March Discovering Christ experience!
