Community works to revive long abandoned San Pablo Roman Catholic Church.

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Once again, community members and parishioners from the San Pedro Roman Catholic Church have breathed new life into the long abandoned church in the San Pablo area south of town. On Sunday, January 25th, with a good cleaning and a new coat of paint inside the room of worship, Father Scott Giuliani S.O.L.T. likened the renewal of the church to spiritual healing. San Pablo Church-2“It has to begin from within the soul, and work its way out,” he told the standing-room only congregation who attended the blessing of the revived church. “There is still much work to be done, but we begin with the inside, just like when we renew our commitment to God,” he said.San Pablo Church
Following the afternoon Mass and blessing of the church, the congregation was treated to a complementary barbeque meal donated by the San Pedro Lions. Afternoon Masses will continue every Sunday at 2PM.San Pablo Church-3
Neglected for years and at times vandalized, there remains many repairs for the small community church, both structurally and cosmetically. The new congregation hopes to continue with the resurrection of the church and appeals to the community for any assistance they can provide.
