ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

Welcome! To keep up with the many happenings at St. Paul's year round, please "like" us

on Facebook, check out our website, stpaulswallingford.org, or our YouTube channel.  And we're right here every Sunday at 8:00 AM & 9:30 AM!

 

Many thanks to our brass players at today’s service: Patrick Leclair, trumpet and Samuel Hausman, trombone!

 

Easter Egg Hunt - There will be Easter Egg Hunts following both services today. All children are welcome to join! 

 

Thanks to all who so generously donated and assembled the goodies for the Easter Egg Hunts!

 

Easter Flowers will be distributed to shut-ins after both services today.  If you are able to take a plant to someone, please see Maura Meltabarger after the 8 AM service or Karen Rowe after the 9:30 AM service, near the altar rail, to pick up a card and plant which you can deliver.  Thanks so much!  It helps homebound parishioners have a happy Easter!

 

Adult Forum – A Study of the Gospel of John - The fourth gospel—the Gospel of John—is quite different from the other three. It contains some of the most beautiful imagery in the Bible as well as some of the most challenging passages.  This spring the Adult Forum will read and discuss this gospel, considering the context in which it was written, various ways it has been interpreted, and the relevance of its message for us today. The Adult Forum is open to all and meets on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. in Wilkinson Hall—this unit will begin on April 12.  Contact Amy Foster if you have any questions (203-697-2758 or afoster@choate.edu).

 

Nicaragua Fact of the Week - 47% of the forest cover in Nicaragua has disappeared over the last fifty years.

 

Lay Eucharistic Visitor Training and Meeting:  Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEVs) pay visits and bring communion to parishioners who are unable to attend services at the church.  It is a fulfilling ministry, and we are eager to add more LEVs to the monthly rotation.  We will have a meeting next Sunday, April 12 at 11:00 a.m. in the Common Room that will include training for new LEVs and conversation with current LEVs about the experience.  Several people have expressed interest in participating in this ministry, but even if you haven’t, feel free to join us at the meeting.  If you are interested in serving as an LEV but cannot attend the meeting, please contact the Rector or Amy Foster (203-697-2758).  

 

NICARAGUA SERVICE TRIP: Plans for our trip to Nicaragua are well underway. Please stay tuned for fundraising events, such as a rice and bean dinner to be held on May 30th!  Great food, company, and entertainment for a GREAT cause!

 

St. Paul's Sacred Trust Committee:  The next meeting of the St. Paul’s Sacred Trust Committee will be June 7, 2015.  In addition to In-reach and Outreach requests the Committee will also review Honorarium Requests.  All requests should be submitted to the parish office no later than May 24, 2015.  If you have any questions please speak with a member of the committee; Pete Nickerson, Carissa Neubig, Vivian Horvath, Carol Ireland, or Steve Madancy.

 

St. Paul's Jackets - Orders are now being taken for jackets with St. Paul's name and our town embroidered on the chest.  The jackets are packable, hooded, multipurpose, 1/4 zip, nylon jacket, water and wind resistant, a center zip pocket and two front welt pockets.  The color is royal and navy blue.  Jacket sales are a fundraiser for the upcoming service trip to Nicaragua. Pick up a order form in the front & back of the church.

 

Keep the Prayer List current - Thank you for the privilege of sharing your deepest prayer concerns.  Let's all help keep our prayer list as current and meaningful as possible.  Please review it carefully and update, as appropriate, any names you may have added.  You may  request that names be removed or listed as a thanksgiving by contacting the parish office at 203-269-5050 or stpaulsepiscopal@snet.net. You may also fill out a bright orange form (hanging on the "welcome" bulletin board by the couches) and place it in the office mailbox.  Thank you.

 

Thank you to "upstairs" kids and teachers Shawn Winberg, Sue Rourke, Matt Scalesse, and Karen Rowe and Becky Scalesse, whose time and creative talents provided the STONE!  And thanks to everyone who donated newspapers!

 

Thrift Shop News - The Thrift Shop has been working hard to prepare for Spring/Summer. We are in special need of gently-worn children's shoes, artwork/decor items and hardcover/paperback books (we will carry both now!).  We have made some positive changes to the shop and hope that you come in and visit!  We also have a new FB page (http://st.paulsthriftshopwallingford). If you are a FB person, please like us & share; together we can all help our shop continue to grow and be recognized! As always, please contact Alesia (203) 537-1506 with questions, comments or donations which she would gladly pick up! THANKS!
