Ideas for observing the Year of St. Paul
Pope Benedict XVI has declared June 29, 2008 (Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul) through June 29, 2009 the Year of Saint Paul. During this Pauline Year, how will your parish highlight the Pauline elements of our Church? Sure, you can bring in speakers and biblical scholars, or have a special Bible study course on Paul's letters, or go to a diocesan workshop on Paul.
But what are the things we already have at hand, without paying anything extra or adding another event to our calendar, that can help us celebrate Saint Paul?
Here are some no- or low-cost, simple ideas for you to do right now to honor this Pauline Year.
