The following call for support was included in Fr. George’s update on March 18. We’ll continue to update this page with ideas and tips for giving back during these uncertain times.
Participate in the care of our St. Paul’s community
Our Clergy and the Care and Share Ministry are reaching out to those most vulnerable and isolated in our parish community. We are planning to provide care within the parameters set by the diocese, which may include picking up groceries for the homebound and making regular phone calls for fellowship and connection. If you are interested in participating in this important ministry, please contact the co-chairs of our Care and Share Ministry, Margie Best (firstname.lastname@example.org; 919-303-3830) and Melonie Wigley (email@example.com; 919-264-4401).
Continue to support St. Paul’s financially
The work of the church is significant—maybe now more than ever. […] our ministry will continue in the midst of this pandemic. There are several ways you can make your financial offering:
- You can elect to have your checking or savings account drafted on a monthly basis by completing an Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization Form and mailing it back to the church office for processing. Funds are drafted once a month, on or around the 15th of the month.
- You can donate with a credit card via PayPal.
- You can mail your check to the church office: 221 Union Street, Cary, NC 27511.
Care for our wider community
There are a variety of ways to contribute to the community at large:
- Dorcas Ministries of Cary and Urban Ministries of Wake County, two of our significant ministry partners, are receiving donations at this time. Please check their website for updated information regarding what kind of donations they are receiving.
- There are also a good number of volunteer opportunities and feeding programs in Western Wake County.
- You can make donations to the Rectors’ Discretionary Funds as well, which are reserved for those needs in the community that fall outside of St. Paul’s operating budget.
- The Zakat Foundation, one of St. Paul’s partners for the showing of “Same God,” is assembling and delivering groceries and hygiene kits in Durham. Social distancing and other safety measures are all being maintained. To find out how you can help with this project, email Nayma Kose, NC Community Center Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
