Faith in Action

January’s food shelf theme is BEVERAGES:juice/tea/coffee/etc, in every pantry-stable form conceivable. Each week 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.

The Reverse Advent Calendar did wonders for Saint Nicholas Food Shelf! The Carlsons dropped off the final large load of donations this week.

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.”

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!
The Ukraine Crisis Response Fund accepts donations to aid those impacted by Russian aggression. Click here.
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

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.
