Both families could use our help. We will be looking for folks to help with the event as well as asking you to sell tickets and encourage as many folks as you can to come out and support this worthwhile endeavor. Tickets are $9 for adults, $4 for youth which includes salad, spaghetti with meatballs, bread and dessert. Takeout or eat-in….all are welcome

We are so very fortunate and truly blessed in many and various ways. St. Paul’s will celebrate the Festival of Harvest Home on September 27. As part of our thanks offering, we ask you to make a monetary donation to World Hunger or consider bringing in needed items for the Food Bank. Check the list under our Food Bank article. This is an opportunity for us to thank God for the wonder of creation that surrounds us with the good things we enjoy.
