Outreach at Saint Paul’s Church on Lake of the Isles
St. Paul’s is committed to doing God’s work in the world, outside of our own parish walls. The Outreach Commission is currently supporting the following opportunities, some ongoing, some recurring scheduled events. All are welcome to take part: parishioners, friends, visitors.
For many years now, St. Paul’s has had a drop-off box to collect books in good condition (recent textbooks are particularly valuable), which can then be delivered to Books For Africa for disbursal abroad – Learn More
Open Arms prepares and delivers meals to people with life-threatening illnesses. We schedule a group outing every other month to volunteer in their kitchen, chopping vegetables and packing food for meals. Some parishioners also volunteer individually to deliver meals. More are always welcome. – Learn More
The Outreach Commission also schedules an event each quarter to afford one more opportunity for us to help others.
These events may, or may not be related to one of the aforementioned outreach efforts.
St. Paul’s has joined our neighbors at Temple Israel as part of their initiative: Temple Israel Committee to End Homelessness (TICEH), which focuses primarily on homeless youth in the Twin Cities. We have opportunities to both serve these young people personally in youth shelters, and to advocate for all homeless people with our government representatives. This is coordinated in part with the Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness (DCEH). – Learn More
