A Year-End Note from Our President:

Dear St. Paul Parishioners,

Speaking on behalf of our Saint Vincent de Paul volunteers here at St. Paul’s, I want to take this opportunity to wish you a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year and to extend an abundance of gratitude for your unwavering support, generosity and prayers over the past year. Through your prayers and continuous monetary support in 2018, our ministry was able to provide close to $90,000.00 of “Christmas Cheer” in the form of rental payments, utilities, and other services to almost 200 less fortunate, struggling families in our area.  Without the dedication and tireless efforts of our volunteers and your on-going support, such works of mercy would have been impossible.

Again, THANK YOU, GOD BLESS and ENJOY the Christmas season! 

Peace and Joy,

Harry Pulvermacher
