Single Again Summer Plans  The regular  Single Again meeting, normally held on the third Friday of the month at 7:00 p.m. has been changed for June and July due to members’ vacation plans. Instead, there will be one meeting on June 30, with the usual opportunity to share, support and pray together. Plan on ice cream, board games, and  social time. In August Single Again will return to its regular schedule with tentative plans to travel in August to see the Pawtucket Red Sox together. All singles are welcome, no matter the church affiliation. If you are interested in the ball game give a call  – bring friends/family to see aspiring or rehabbing Fenway ball players!  Contact Laurie LaBrecque with questions. 774-253-4432/ljlab@aol.com.

Annual Community Picnic July 23   Be sure to mark your calendar on July 23 for our annual community picnic being held on the front lawn of St. Paul’s, which will include members of St. Paul’s, Community Covenant Church, and the Islamic Masumeen Center.   The picnic will take place after the service and there will be cultural dishes, traditional BBQ fare, and a large helping of fellowship.  Friends and neighbors – and their children –  are welcome.  Please bring lawn games and dishes and/or desserts to share.

Blue Envelopes The blue envelopes in the collection plate Easter Sunday and April 23 are to help fund the music ministry at St. Paul’s and pay for organ tunings and repairs.    If you enjoyed the music provided by the St. Paul’s choir and musicians this Holy Week and Easter Sunday, this is a great way to show your appreciation and ensure that they will be able to create more music in the future.

Pansies for Pancreatic Cancer Alliance Bob Snyder will be delivering pansies to St. Paul’s Chuch on Easter Sunday this year, using the same basic process that we have used in past years.  The pansies are in 5-inch pots, ready to go straight into the ground or into your window planters. (These plants thrive on the cold weather of April by the way.) Each pot is $5.00. Profits from this sale go directly to the Pancreatic Cancer Alliance (PCA). The PCA raises funds to support Pancreatic Cancer Research at UMass Medical in Worcester. This group has zero administrative costs so each $5 donation is split between product cost to the nursery and the PCA research fund.
