OCTOBER IS STEWARDSHIP MONTH - Every October, members of St. Paul’s are encouraged to reflect on how we are caring for, and deploying the gifts that God has given to us. After reflection, each parishioner and friend will be given a “pledge card” to fill out and return to the parish office. On it will be opportunity to share with the Treasurer how much you pledge to donate to St. Paul’s during 2016. (If your life circumstances change for the better or worse during the year, your pledge may be changed by notifying the Treasurer. These commitments are held private.)
