Five Loaves Mission
Are you interested in “serving” others?
Volunteers are needed for Five Loaves Mission. 
It’s on Monday evenings from 4:45-6:15 pm in St. Paul’s Parish House. It’s a great opportunity to serve free carryout meals one Monday a month (or more frequently if you are interested). 
Please contact Nancy Ustach for more information at nustach@gmail.com.

This year’s bazaar silent auction will have a slightly different look. Because of the return to an in-person event which will feature many of our traditional sales rooms, the auction will be limited to gift certificates. Please consider shopping at one of your favorite area businesses (retail or restaurant) and purchase a gift certificate of $50 or higher to donate to the auction. If you’d like to try something a bit different, such as hosting a dinner for 8 or supper for a season, these will be welcomed and should add an extra zing to bidding.

Our gift certificates have gone for more than purchase value and have added significantly to the bottom line. We have commitments already to Friendly Market and Harbor Specialty. We look forward to adding to the list. Commitments are needed by Sept. 15.


If you have questions or want to chat about auction ideas, ECW contact Sarah Jo Safrit.



Although we’re in the dog days of summer, now’s the time to think about how you can contribute to the success of the ECW Fall Bazaar! The women of St. Paul’s ECW are “fast and furious” planning and preparing for the Bazaar!

Today we’re writing to you about Frozen Foods, Baked Goods, and the Country Store. All of these items will be sold in the On-line Sale, which will start on October 15, 2022, and end on October 29, 2022. Pick-up by the buyer will be Friday, November 11, 2022. The in-person Bazaar will be November 12, 2022 and you’ll soon be hearing more about this.

We need your help! Please read on and see where you can contribute. Remember the Bazaar net proceeds are all do- nated to the various charities St. Paul’s support all year long!

Frozen Foods


Sylvia Wheatly and Allison DuBuisson will chair the Frozen Foods Committee for this year’s Bazaar.

As in the past, we will focus on tried-and-true favorites that have sold well in the past.

In early September, we will start calling parishioners who have provided frozen dishes in the past. If you are new to St. Paul’s and would like to participate, please reach out to one of us to discuss what you might make.

We will need these foods:

• Soups and stews, such as chili, Brunswick stew, chowder, beef or chicken with rice or noodles, and some vegetarian soups. Plan to cook at least 5 quarts of each item.
• Casseroles such as quiches, ravioli, enchiladas, breakfast casseroles, pot pies. Each casserole should serve at least 4-6. Plan to cook at least 5 of your item.

New this year, we will have deli-style quart containers for soups/stews available for those who need them.


Frozen items can be brought to the Parish Hall on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, November 7th – 9th, from 10:00 -12:00. FOODS MUST BE FROZEN SOLID WHEN DELIVERED TO THE CHURCH.

Let’s get started! Frozen Foods is a big money-maker for the Bazaar, and we look forward to working with our won-derful St. Paul cooks.
