Celebrating the Gift of God’s Love

Parish News

Year End Giving

Tax statements were sent last week to all those who gave to St. Pascal's over the past year.  Many thanks for your generosity throughout 2019.  We have received questions about the following two areas:

  1. Parish giving statements do not reflect charitable distributions since the IRA or trust organization is responsible for issuing tax statements.  Please contact me if you have any questions regarding charitable distributions.
  2. Since the parish school closed as of June 30, 2019, St. Pascal's parish is not able to accept split checks or donations to the Regional School; a separate business entity.  If you have questions about your contribution either the parish school (given before July 1) or the new school (after July 1), please contact Leah Eviston in the Regional School office.

I hope this clarifies any questions you may have.

Blessings to you - Theresa Ruttger, Business Administrator

Winter Weather and Office Closure

On those days when the St. Paul Public School District closes city schools due to weather, it is the practice of St. Pascal Regional Catholic School to close its school as well.  When this happens, all school and parish activities and meetings will be cancelled. The building may also be closed at the discretion of the pastor or business administrator. Daily Mass will be offered on weather-related days assuming that the Pastor/Presider can get to the church.
