Who We Are

With so much going on at St. Paul’s it can be hard to keep track of it all. Here’s the comprehensive list of ways to get involved.
While some college freshmen stray from the practice of their faith, many do not. The challenges that students encounter here can actually inspire them to engage their faith in deeper and more effective ways.
