What's Happening at St. Paul's?

Hope you are well this week. Today, I would like to draw your attention to the backpack and school supply collection by the Episcopal Farmworker Ministry. I would also like to remind you about the weekly posts in the Hope for the Journey series. As usual, we look forward to having you join us for worship on Sunday, whether in-person at 7:30 and 10:00 a.m. or online at 10:00 a.m. Read Javier’s Letter
In this week’s Hope for the Journey, Fr. Javier reflects on what it takes to make a difference: “It may be that history will call upon you one day to step up to the plate and take a big swing; it may be that your actions on that day will change the course of history.

I’m glad you asked!
The Lobster Fest steering committee is busy trying to determine whether we can have Lobster Fest, and what “flavor” of Lobster Fest it will be. No final decisions have been made, yet – we have a TON of different variables to consider, ranging from any needs to mask and social distance, to the availability of the parish hall, to the price of lobsters… We ask that you be patient with us as we try to navigate a “new normal.” We will be in touch as soon as we can with more information and opportunities for participation.
NO ONE is permitted in the Education Building/Parish Hall without being accompanied by the contractor or a Warden of the vestry. It remains an active construction site. Work will be shut down by the Fire Marshall if you disregard this request. We have received a warning already.
Please be patient as we work through the final details safely. It will definitely be worth the wait!

St. Paul’s will provide five volunteers each Tuesday between June 22, 2021 and August 10, 2021 from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm. Anyone can volunteer!Continue reading
