The bidding will close at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 18. Check in often to see any newly added items and to raise your bids, if necessary! All proceeds from our POP-UP Auction will go to St. Paul’s Summer Projects.
COLD COVERED DISH LUNCH AFTER MASS—JUNE 28! Yes, in our own Parish Hall we will hold a cold covered dish lunch. We don’t know if Team Kitchen will have removed the Parish Hall sink, or if the kitchen floor will be under repair, making the workspace impossible to use. THEREFORE, start thinking now of the great COLD DISH (as in not requiring heating on a stove, washing preparation, etc.) that you will bring and share with others. And yes, the usual iced tea and lemonade will be served to wash it all down. And bring a friend!
A GREAT OLD HYMN FEST will fill mass on Independence Day weekend. Make plans to sing your favorite hymns on Sunday, July 5.
FERRAGOSTO ICE CREAM – In celebration of the Assumption of the BVM (August 15), special Italian ice-cream will be served after mass on August 16.
JAZZ@MASS SUNDAYS are planned for August 2, and September 27.
St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Clinton & Carroll Streets, Brooklyn.
