Loves & Fishes Ministry: Meals During Times of Need
St. Paul’s has a new ministry for our parishioners who need help during times of need (for example: following surgery, severe illness, birth, death, etc.). Getting dinner on the table following a major life event can be so hard, so we want to help each other during those times with prayer and food. A “meal train” connects those needing help with the helpers. More details HERE
