21 April: Lenten Book Group Wrap-up: Readers of any part of A Different Kind of Fast are invited to a concluding discussion in the Undercroft following the liturgy.

28 April: An All-Parish Meeting will be held in the Undercroft following the morning’s liturgy. Hear updates from the Wardens, Rev. Ramona, Building and Grounds, Beloved Community Action, Faith in Action initiatives, Jacob Manier’s sabbatical, and more.

Help us realize a zero-waste coffee hour: bring your own utensils, mug, and perhaps a cloth napkin, then take them home to wash. Let’s see if we can keep the trash empty that day!

5 May (corrected date) Future planning: Join us after Coffee Hour for a discussion led by Gene Tierney on visioning the future of Saint Paul’s. Discussion topics include what are we called to live into as followers of Jesus, members of Saint Paul’s, and participating in community engagement. All are welcome.

Faith in Action

You may be asked… will you say yes? 
Find out more in next week’s E-pistle and at the All-Parish Meeting on April 28.

April’s food shelf theme is LATINX PANTRY STAPLES: canned corn, refried beans, tomatoes, jalapenos; dried beans; white rice; canola oil; and tortillas. 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.
