COMMUNITY EVENTS AT ST. PAUL’S
Our final Third Friday Supper of the season is scheduled for May 20th. These suppers are open to parishioners and neighbors alike. We hope they will become anticipated events, attract new people to St. Paul’s, and grow in satisfied diners! Parishioners cook up a storm in the kitchen. Guests drop in anytime between 6:00 and 8:30 p.m. to enjoy great food at a great price, then leave without the mess of dirty dishes to wash. Great idea for the end of a workweek. Adults: $15; Children: $5; max per family: $30.
