Transition Update #6

Tweeter Moran offered a wonderful message last Sunday about counting your blessings each day. As the Vestry continues its work with the Transition Counselor, we are reminded of the many blessings that St. Paul’s has and it is with these gifts that we step off into this exciting new chapter of our life together at St. Paul’s. In the next weeks and months we will work together, using our gifts of time and talent to lead us forward into our future.

Our summer services continue this Saturday at 5 pm in the Rector’s office – the service will be led by Ann Partridge who always encourages us to look at things in a different light. On Sunday morning, Dorothy Waldt will share another one of her inspiring sermons. Please join us!

Dozens of Fresh Eggs

Dear parish family,
As you may or may not know, our family has been raising chicks for a year now and are becoming overwhelmed with eggs.  Our eggs are all natural non-gmo, some brown and some greenish blue. We have a refrigerator behind our garage where we store the eggs for anyone interested in picking up.  Our address is 5 Edgren Way, Montvale.  Please feel free to come by at your convenience and pick up a dozen or more. Come anytime.  It would be helpful if you return the cartons when you are done.  Thanks,
The Piatt Family
