Outreach at St. Paul's

      In our daily lives, we observe the needs of other where St. Paul's can 'Reach Out' to provide assistance and caring to many people.  This is a major program at St. Paul's, to be there when help of any kind is requested by people needing some type of care or by providing financial assistance to small community groups.

Programs available:

  • Outreach Council offers grants to small groups requesting financial assistance.
  • Pastoral Care happens in many ways, at many times through the loving hands of all at St. Paul's - the clergy as well as laypeople. If you are in need, please reach out to receive the care of Christ we are so ready to offer.

St. Paul’s in the City

This spring St. Paul’s begins a series of informational forums designed to address topics relevant to life in urban Rochester. We hope to offer parishioners and the general public an opportunity to learn and engage in conversations around various topics.

For Year One, we will focus on urban education. We have planned a series of four forums over four weeks. We are not endorsing any particular opinion; it is our goal to offer a place for people to receive information, ask questions about individual programs and, if desired, provide resources for followup. Speakers for each forum will make a presentation followed by a Q&A. Each evening will last no more than ninety minutes.

You are invited to join the conversation - Four successive Thursdays at 7:00 pm in the Parish Hall.
