An acrylic paint pour – also known as acrylic flow painting or simply a paint pour – is happening at St. Paul’s at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 26.

Regardless of what it’s called, the technique is the same. Acrylic paint is poured onto a surface, creating a unique flowing design. And anyone can do it.  So here’s your chance to make messy memories!

This Youth Ministry event is open to the young and not-as-young alike. The cost is $5 per person, which covers the paint as well as the canvas so everyone can leave with their masterpiece.

To ensure there are enough supplies on hand, please RSVP by July 20 to saintpaulsym@gmail.com or call Chris Worthington at 845-248-3120.


At 7 p.m. Monday, July 15, the 45-plus member Pine Bush Community Band will again engage and entertain with an eclectic and energetic free concert inside the main church.

    There aren’t many settings where dragons can share a space with The Greatest Showman or Italian folk songs with Johnny Cash tunes. Yes, you will be able to hear the bells – and “The Star-Spangled Banner” too, because it’s July.


Calling all young adults between the ages of 18 and 30 who would like to meet others while enjoying some engaging activities.

The first Young Adult Ministry event, a game night, is planned for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, August 2, in Deacon John Hall at St. Paul’s Church in Bullville. Some games will be supplied, but participants are welcome to bring their family-friendly favorites. Light refreshments will be served, and the invitation for others to join in the fun will be extended to other nearby Catholic Churches.

The plan is to meet at least monthly and for the group to ultimately determine what it wants to do. A picnic perhaps? Or maybe pickleball?

For more information, reach out to adviser Anne Savastano at 845-36-3587 or anya1321@gmail.com.

For planning purposes, game night RSVPs are welcome, but don’t hesitate to just show up!
