April Showers For The Needy

Volunteers Needed

On Saturdays, there are many clients at the Food Pantry who would benefit by being able to use our showers. It would be appropriate to be able to provide this service since we do have the facilities. We would like to have the showers available from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.  

 

Towels, shampoo, soap, etc. would be provided. To be able to do this, we need volunteers who would do the following tasks: sign-up clients for the showers (about 20 minutes increments), hand out towels and bath products, monitor time, and launder towels for the next week.  

If you are interested, please contact Selma in the office. 801-322-5869 Admin@stpauls-slc.org

 

 

 

Caring Connections Needs Volunteers

Dedicated volunteers are needed to help write monthly notes of caring and concern to those on our parish prayer list. Cards, envelopes, and stamps are provided; all that is needed is a bit of your time to briefly express thoughts of encouragement on behalf of our parish to those in need.

This ministry affirms the importance of our relationships with one another and expresses our continuing care when circumstances make connections difficult. Please contact, Sarabeth Clevenger: 801-300-1381 or John Sheaffer: 801-792-7742  if you can help.

 

 

 

Pentecost Services

Be sure to come join us in our Festive Pentecost Sunday celebrations on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20, all Pentecost services will be held in the nave.

 

Utah Pride Coalition Worship Service

Just a reminder to be promoting the Utah Pride Interfaith Coalition’s annual worship service.  This year it is held at Zion Lutheran Church on Foothill Blvd on Thursday, May 31 at 7:00 pm.  We are inviting all faith community leaders to don their clergy garb and join in the procession and litany at the beginning of the service.  So faith leaders show up 20 minutes early so we can get vested and lined up.  

 

Pride Parade

Join us and WEAR RED in our march for the annual Utah Pride Parade, St. Paul's will march with the entire Diocese. Because of that, there will be no Sunday Services at the Church.  St. Paul's plans to have a larger 5 p.m. service on Saturday, June 2, details to come.

All Pride Parade forms are available for pick at the north entrance of the Church and a PDF   version is on this week’s E-newsletter.  Staging times and areas will be determined on Monday.

 

Meals On Wheels: Drivers Needed 

St. Paul's parishioners have been delivering Meals on Wheels in co-operation with Salt Lake County for the past 5 or 6 years.  Typically, each volunteer delivers meals one day a week to 8 or 10 people.  It takes about one hour.  

 

Clients are usually very grateful for this service.  A relative of one recipient told me that the meal we delivered was the only nourishment her brother-in-law got in his last months.  We are currently in need of a replacement driver.  

If you would like to volunteer, speak to Ray Wilmot, or call him at 801 328-1963.
