Faith in Action

February’s food shelf theme is LAUNDRY: A great opportunity to “bulk up” at places like Costco or Sam’s Club! Detergents and stain removers are  truly needed by everyone (no softener or dryer sheets, please). Place your items in the bins outside the Undercroft. 
p.s. General donations are always welcome.  Email Laurie or call 612-849-1348 to assist with delivery.

From Joyce Uptown Foodshelf: “Monetary donations are the most helpful and can be made through the PayPal link here or sent to Joyce Uptown at 3041 Fremont Ave S, Minneapolis 55408. For every $1.00 donated we can purchase $2.20 of food from our foodbanks.”

Blessing Bags are still available for distribution! Check the cubbies outside the Undercroft, and keep them in your car for distribution to neighbors in need.
Saint Paul’s Little Library is still popular even as the temperatures drop. Children’s picture books are most needed, as well as metal bookends; all donations can be placed in the bins outside the Undercroft. Your continued generosity helps make this outreach possible!
Episcopal Relief & Development accepts donations to aid those in need both at home and abroad. Click here to donate in a way meaningful to you.
And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
Matthew 25:40

Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care Team has a request for all: as we practice our social distancing, do not let that extend to social isolation. Take a few minutes every day to call someone to see how they are doing – to reach out and say a prayer with them and/or find out if they need anything. One of the things that is so important right now is to connect with our community. If there are those who need help, please let us know and we will figure out how to assist; if you are that person, please reach out to Deacon Janet or Pat Trumbull. As Jesus said: Love one another.
