From April 29 until the beginning of September, there will be a large jar in the narthex for donations that will also be included in the final amount that will be sent to St. Mary’s. The month of September will be dedicated, again, to a fundraising campaign to coincide with the start of the school year. If you write a check, please make the check out to St. Paul’s with SAYES in the memo line. Thank you for your generosity and how you helped to brighten a child’s future.

BEACH PARTY! (of the spiritual kind): June 8-10 in Rehoboth Beach, DE
All the men of St. Paul’s are invited to join the Brothers of St. Andrew as we host our 30th annual retreat at the DuPont Memorial House in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Fr. Daniel Moore will be leading us in discussion as we explore the core practices of the Christian faith. Topics for conversation include prayer, food, worship, service, and community. Join us on the weekend of June 8-10 for fellowship, fun (tennis, golf, beach, fishing), spiritual growth, and all the food you can eat! For more details, please contact Sam Palermo or Michael Kelly.


The Toddler Room at St. Paul’s
St. Paul’s offers nursery care for our littlest ones during the 10:00 service on Sundays in our Toddler Room, located right on the stage of Paxson Hall. Parents of children ages 6 months to 3 years can feel free to drop them off starting at 9:30am. The room is kid-friendly, with toys, books, and even a crib for those needing a nap. Parents can feel free to make use of it as needed, whether for the whole service or until Communion. Children of all ages are always welcome in church—our Toddler Room is simply an option, not a requirement. As Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me…”
