There are many ways to help within and beyond the walls of St. Paul’s.

Ongoing service opportunities

Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. – ​Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich making in the parish kitchen to benefit the children who attend Kate’s Kitchen in Holyoke. Donations of whole wheat bread, peanut butter or grape jelly would be gratefully accepted.

Thursdays from noon to 1:30 p.m. – Veterans’ Lunches. Veterans and their immediate adult family members will be welcome. Volunteers always needed.

Sundays following 10:00 a.m. service – Choir rehearsal. No previous musical experience needed. All are welcome.

Peanut Butter and Jelly

Every Tuesday morning at 9:30 throughout the year a faithful group led by Gina Nelson gathers to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the children who come to the daily noonday meal at Kate’s Kitchen.  The leadership at Kate’s noticed that a number of kids come to that free meal, and they thought it would be good to offer them a sandwich to go in case there wasn’t much to eat later in the day.  Members of St. Paul’s stepped up and offered to take Tuesdays and  have been providing this little boost for some time.

Donations of bread, jelly, peanut butter, and plastic sandwich bags are always appreciated. 

Prayer Shawls

Prayer shawls and baby blankets are available in the church to take to those who need them.

Spirit of Saint Paul's

The Spirit of St. Paul’s is a committee of about a dozen members that meets on the last Tuesday of each month. Our goal is to bring support and a positive spirit to members of St. Paul’s and the surrounding community. We are known for sending cards and care packages to those in need as well as for organizing the Giving Tree Event that provides Christmas gifts for homeless men who live at Loreto House in Holyoke. If you would like to know more, please contact Joan Daly through the parish office. We hope you will join us!
