A Pantry Story: Nikisch Ibrahimovic (not her real name) is another of our pantry

clients. Mrs. Ibrahimovic is a lovely woman in her middle 70s, who always wears her best when coming to the pantry. She immigrated from Bosnia about 16 years ago.

She provides a home for her grandson, who is attending the University of Utah and will be graduating at the end of this year. When serving her, she begins with a sweet greeting and then with great patience, she slowly and carefully spells her

name: i-b-r-a-h-i. At the close of the spelling lesson, she pronounces her name and bows. If you become a Saturday volunteer, you will get the chance to meet her. 

 

Special Coffee Hour: Sunday, August 26

 

Please join us for a special coffee hour in honor of Ellen King. She will be moving to Colorado in September to be closer to family.

St. Paul’s Choir

St. Paul’s Choir rehearsals resume on Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. and continue each Wednesday evening. If anyone would like to join our choir, this is the ideal time to start. If interested, plan to attend our first rehearsal. Further questions may be directed to Charles Black, Music Director at charles@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.

 

 

 

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.
