Happy Spring, everyone!
This Sunday at Saint Paul’s:
Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves joyfully receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations of personal care and non-perishable food. Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in the baskets at the Narthex doors. Thank you!
A word (or words) from the paint project Listening Committee…
After Sunday’s Eucharist, the painting project Listening Committee (Steve Clarke, Ruth Mary Gens, Meredith Johnson, Julie L’Enfant, Helen Lockhart, assisted by Father Marcus and Jacob Manier) will be available to receive feedback regarding the proposed paint colors. (You’ll find feedback reports for the last two weeks posted near the display table in the Nave.) If you’ve already spoken with a member of the committee, thank you! If you haven’t yet offered feedback, please do, as the Committee will make a recommendation to the Vestry based on feedback. While you’re at it, please consider adding your name to the “I’ll lend a hand” list on the display table – a project this big involves lots of tasks for all manner of skill- levels and time-commitments, and we’d love to find a way for you to join the team!
Our inaugural Commission Saturday is scheduled for 19 May. Please click this link to read more about it.
Father Marcus’s Open Office hours are suspended for two weeks, but will resume on 9 May at Common Roots Cafe (2558 Lyndale Ave South). You are invited to join him Wednesdays from 10am-1pm for coffee and conversation. A more confidential meeting can be scheduled by calling the church, or using Calendly.
If you missed any of Father Marcus’s sermons (or wish to revisit one that spoke to you), you can find them on his Word Made FRESH podcast on your Apple device, or Pocketcasts on Android; print versions are accessible on his blog of the same name, and in the Sermons section of this website.
Thank you to Father Marcus for hosting Coffee Hour this week; next week, the Men’s Group.
Coffee Hour will be an opportunity for faith formation for all generations throughout Lent. We will journal, play games, dance, plant gardens in the Undercroft – all while reflecting on what it means to be a Christian. You are invited to bring your whole family each week to share in this experience with us.
