The Church of St. Paul the Apostle was founded in 1858, by Servant of God, Fr. Isaac Hecker, CSP, and has been faithfully serving the Lincoln Square community ever since!
As the Mother Church of the Paulist Fathers, and the home of the Paulist National Young Adult Ministries, our parish places particular value on community outreach, be it through our soup kitchens and food pantries, or through concerts, art exhibitions, and other accessible cultural events.
Since opening inside the church in 1978, the St. Paul the Apostle Bookstore has provided religious books, art, and gifts to parishioners and visitors of all ages. If you like our online store, and want to come visit us in person, our current hours are 9AM-5PM on weekdays, 9AM-6:30PM on Saturdays and Sundays.
