Youth completing grades 6-12 in June 2014 are eligible to join this trip.

Parish Hall

Preliminary work has already begun as the vestry has authorized the renovation of the Parish Hall. We are currently trying to work around the final days of our school plus time and the various meetings that use the hall, prior to closing it for intensive work during the summer.

Please Contribute

We are delighted to announce that our own, Casey Woodruff, has been accepted to The General Theological Seminary for the fall. The vestry has authorized a small fundraiser to give him a grant to help purchase books. Anyone who would like to contribute, please send a check to St. Paul's, with memo, "Casey Woodruff." Thank you!

St. Paul’s Book Group – Thursday, July 31st & Sept.
