  • Lenten retreat

    The Adult Faith Formation Committee is pleased to announce its Lenten Retreat titled: “Christ, Our Joy: How a Personal Relationship with Christ Can Transform Your Spiritual Life,” presented by Jennifer Edwards. It will take place Saturday, March 10 (snow date is March 24). More details will follow. 

  • Lenten Bible study 

    Lenten Bible Study takes place Tuesdays and begins this Tuesday, Feb. 6. The morning session is at 10 a.m. (not at 11 a.m. as indicated on the calendar - oops); the evening session is at 6:30 p.m.

    Prayer is one of the pillars of Lent, and delving
    into the Gospel of John is one way to strengthen that pillar in a most relevant way. In their discussions, the group focuses on literally how to practice what is preached, how to incorporate the messages into everyday life. For more information, call Eileen Carson at 551-2842. 

  • in Need of food?

    It seems the colder the temperature the hungrier we get. But what if the cupboards aren’t filled?

    Do you know someone who’s struggling to put food on the table? St. Paul’s has a Food Pantry to assist those in need. A quick phone call to the Church Office will ensure the bags are packed and ready for pickup on Saturday morning.

    The Food Pantry is also open to parishioners during “off hours.” Feel free to reach out to anychurch staff, including a call to the office, to make private arrangements. Your anonymity will be respected.

    And donations of nonperishable and non-expired are always appreciated.
