Letter from the Pastor
My Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
The Diocese of Corpus Christi was created by Pope Saint Pius X in 1912. In 2012 we celebrated 100 years of faithful discipleship by those giants of love, the men and women who have come before us, whose shoulders we stand upon, as we proclaim Christ’s message of hope for the next 100 years.
St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church was founded in 1967 and shares in the rich tradition of our diocese, born of the sweat of many men and women of whose sacrifice we now benefit, and legacy we now share.
It is my hope that we continue to build upon that which has been handed down to us, God’s Kingdom in this part of the vineyard. There are many who have laid the foundation of our parish and are no longer with us, yet they remain in our hearts and prayers; along with countless faithful throughout the diocese from parish to parish.
May their legacy of faith, be our invitation to faith, inspiring within us a desire to be giants of Christ’s love for future generations. May the efforts of our hearts and hands unite with theirs, creating an ever flowing font of God’s grace, for the salvation of souls.
Sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Peter G. Martinez
