Come One, Come All - Restore the Parish Hall

2014 Spring Auction
Saturday, May 17th, 2014, 5-9pm
​at The Parish Hall and the St. Francis Garden

St. Paul’s is hosting its Spring Auction to fund the Restoration of Parish Hall. Silent auction items and beautiful raffle baskets donated by our parishioners and local merchants will be up for winning! Why the Spring Auction to benefit the Parish Hall? The 100+ year building has been the secondary center of St. Paul’s community (behind the church, of course!) and has been experiencing exterior and interior troubles these many years. An extensive renovation is planned, and this summer, construction will begin on the renovation of the Parish Hall. We need the parish and the community support to assist in funding this renovation! Please help “Restore the Parish Hall” to its former grandeur!
