  • Stewardship Season at St. Paul’s  The Solemnity of All Saints (November 1-6) was the official target date for receiving our completed Pledge Cards for 2016.  If you have not yet returned yours, please try to do so asap.
  • Harvest time Food Collection  Our Sunday School students invite us to contribute to their collection of NONPERISHABLE food stuffs that will be delivered to the Food Closet at First Presbyterian, Brooklyn Heights.  Bins prepared to receive your donations will be placed in the rear of the church.  Thanksgiving and Christmas Days see a great outpouring of food for the poor; our Harvest time Food Collection is meant to help supply needed food on those “inbetween” days.
  • New Parish Hall recycle bins!  The St. Francis Guild and the Sunday School Students call our attention to the new recycle bins they have placed in the Parish Hall for our use. 
  • Socks!  This fall, the youth group is collecting CLEAN NEW WARM men's socks for the homeless men who eat at the CHIPS Center on 4th Ave. We would like to get as many socks as possible in the next month, so that we can make a donation to them before the winter season. Please bring your socks on Sundays to Coffee Hour where we will have a collection box. If you have any questions, you can talk to Eoin Riley-Duffy or other member of the youth group.
  • The 150th Anniversary of the laying of our building’s cornerstone in 1867 is but one year away.  On the Solemenity of All Saints we began our mindfulness of this upcoming celebration.  Meanwhile, this year also marks the 150th anniversary of our neighboring congregation of Sacred Hearts and St. Stephens.  When our congregation moved into our present building, St. Stephen’s purchased our first, small wooden building.  They worshiped there until they too outgrew it, and built their present church the same plot of land at the corner of Summit and Hicks.  Please remember to pray for God’s Grace that our congregations might continue faithfully to serve as beacons of Christ’s Gospel in this neighborhood.
  • Christmas Memorial/Thanksgiving Greens  Beginning November 27, special envelopes will be  placed in Advent’s Sunday bulletins for use in making contributions towards the greening of the Church for the Christmas Feast.  For information on how to make memorials by mail, please contact the Church at  

St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Clinton & Carroll Streets, Brooklyn.
