COMING UP AT ST. PAUL'S IN OCTOBER
Gumbo! This Friday Night
Friday, October 20th is the date for the season’s first Third Friday Dinner for Charity. Our master chefs, Ken Schwartz and Keith Edwards are planning this month’s Louisiana style menu, gathering their kitchen staff, and preparing to provide you and your family with another delicious Southern gumbo dinner. Adults $15, Seniors $12, Children $5, Family $30 maximum. Vegetarian choice is always available. All proceeds go to Episcopal Ministries. At the end of the work week, how great to have someone else make dinner for you and your family! You’re encouraged to bring your friends and neighbors as well.
Sunday School for Two Groups
Sunday School continues for children ages 6-12 at 9:45 and for children ages three through five at 10:15. If you have any questions about Sunday School, you can speak to Jean Del Colliano, Cynthia Racine, Tyrie Kauff, or Alicia Guerin.
Stewardship Season at St. Paul's
Did you receive your 2017 Pledge Card in the mail? If you did, please fill it out and return it using the self-addressed, stamped envelope provided. If you have not received it, you can ask an usher for a card at the next Sunday service. It is important to fill out a pledge card to assist the Vestry in budgeting for 2018. Grow your pledge to Grow the Mission of St. Paul’s.
Transition Team - Have questions or concerns about this time of transition at St. Paul's? Feel free to direct them to Lilo Carr Rivera and Rufus Hallmark, our Transition Team. Diocesan guidelines charge them with assisting during this time of transition so that the Wardens and Vestry can focus on the work of running the parish, as well as calling an Interim Priest, and forming a Search Committee. Lilo and Rufus welcome your thoughts and reactions during this time.
If you would like to donate to Fr. Cullen’s gifts (the ikon and the Lamb of God photograph), place your donation in an envelope, clearly marked with your name and “Fr. Cullen’s Gifts”, and mail it to St. Paul’s Church or drop it in the collection plate.
COMMUNITY EVENTS AT ST. PAUL'S
St. Paul’s 29th Annual Auction is Saturday, December 2nd, just in time for Christmas shopping. Although this is months away, for the auction to be a success, it takes careful planning and a lot of work. Right now, what you can do is mark your calendars and contact the wardens or members of the vestry and tell them you would like to help with the planning and organization work that must take place in the months to come.
Quilt Raffle tickets are now available for you to purchase for yourself or to sell to your friends and family. See Madge Willner at Coffee Hour.
