We are excited to announce that we have now passed the halfway mark on this year’s Capital Campaign toward our goal of $28,000. Our grateful thanks to everyone who has contributed and pledged thus far. Several of you have asked that we extend the deadline of the Campaign so that you may contribute, and we are happy to comply. The deadline has been extended now to July 31. Remember that no amount is too small or too large and that many of your employers have not-for-profit donation matching programs. Taking care of all of the St. Paul’s property is our sacred responsibility, both to God and to those who will worship here and value this faith community in the future. If you have not given yet, please prayerfully consider doing so.
See you at Mass (at 10:00 am) on Sunday.
FREE CONCERT TONIGHT! 8:00 pm
The annual Choral Institute, held at St. Paul’s for the past several years, began last Friday and ends with a free concert tonight. The concert will feature choral works by Debussy, Palestrina, Duruflé, Howells, and new works composed by the participants during the Institute.
CHURCH OFFICES CLOSED: JULY 4
The church offices will be closed on Thursday, July 4, in celebration of Independence Day. Morning Prayer will still be read in the Lady Chapel at 7:30 am, as usual.
CAPITAL CAMPAIGN DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JULY 31
By popular demand, the deadline of the Capital Campaign has been extended to July 31. Our capital campaign this year is renovating the 3rd-floor apartment, an important part of the parish’s transition process. Our heartfelt thanks to those of you have donated or pledged already. No amount is too small or too large, and remember that some employers will match your donation. You are also encouraged to spread the word in your community, and reach out to family and friends. All help is welcome. If you have not contributed, please consider it prayerfully. If you have any questions, please see Nick Mancino or Nancy Webster.

2019/2020 DIRECTORY AVAILABLE
The 2019/2020 St. Paul’s Directory will be available at Coffee Hour and are provided as a courtesy. They are for in-house use only and not to be distributed outside our community. We make our best effort to be accurate in the listings; however, if you see typos, or if you move or change your contact information, please let us know: Info@stpaulscarrollst.org.
We do our best to make sure the Directory is as accurate as possible, but still typos slip in and ofttimes people’s information changes. We’ll announce those changes and corrections in the Eblast when they arise. Please make your copy of the Directory.

CONTACTING THE SEARCH COMMITTEE
In the course of the Search Committee presentation on the status and process of the rector search at the parish Annual Meeting on January 27, the Committee offered interested parishioners a tool to reach out to it regarding any concerns they might wish to voice related to the search. If you want to provide your suggestions or comments, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PRAYERS FOR ST. PAUL’S DURING THE TRANSITION AND RECTOR SEARCH
As you read the Eblast each week, it is a good opportunity to take 30 seconds and offer a prayer for St. Paul’s during its transition and for the members of the Search Committee. Prayers to that effect will be included each week in the Eblast.
For St. Paul’s:
O God, by whom the meek are guided in judgment, and light riseth up in darkness for the godly: Grant us, we beseech thee, in all our doubts and uncertainties, the grace to ask what thou wouldest have us to do, that the Spirit of wisdom may save us from all false choices, and that in thy light we may see light,, and in thy straight path may not stumble; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
For the Search Committee:
Almighty God, giver of every good gift: Look graciously on St. Paul’s, and so guide the minds of Keith, Monika, Anne, Michael, Willie, Julie, Cynthia, Ken, and Rob, and all those who shall call a rector for this parish, that they may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for thy people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
