Outreach at Saint Paul’s Church on Lake of the Isles
St. Paul’s is committed to doing God’s work in the world, outside of our own parish walls. The Outreach Commission is currently supporting the following opportunities, some ongoing, some recurring scheduled events. All are welcome to take part: parishioners, friends, visitors.
The Outreach Commission also schedules an event each quarter to afford one more opportunity for us to help others.
These events may, or may not be related to one of the aforementioned outreach efforts.
For the four weeks in Advent, use this blue Advent Calendar bag to collect one food shelf donation item each day (see list below).
When you place each donation inside, say a brief prayer or blessing for its recipient. For example:
• “Lord, may
these beans warm
and nourish the
family who receives them.”
• “Bless the person who will
clean their teeth with this
Bring your bag back to Saint Paul’s on Sundays and empty it into the food shelf collection bins. Take it home again to continue your Advent Calendar practice of blessing those in need each week as we await the birth of our Lord.
Enter the season of giving!
