COMMUNITY EVENTS AT ST. PAUL’S

  • St. Paul’s 29th Annual Auction is Saturday, December 2nd, just in time for Christmas shopping. Although this is months away, for the auction to be a success, it takes careful planning and a lot of work. Right now, what you can do is mark your calendars and contact the wardens or members of the vestry and tell them you would like to help with the planning and organization work that must take place in the months to come.
  • Quilt Raffle tickets are now available for you to purchase for yourself or to sell to your friends and family.  See Madge Willner at Coffee Hour.

TRANSITION

  • If you would like to donate to Fr. Cullen’s gifts (the ikon and the Lamb of God photograph), place your donation in an envelope, clearly marked with your name and “Fr. Cullen’s Gifts”, and mail it to St. Paul’s Church or drop it in the collection plate.
  • Look for a letter from the Wardens with an outline of the transition process, “A Journey Through Change” available at Coffee Hour.
