Transition Update #7

“I will choose to find joy in the journey that God has set before me.”

As we look to our future together at St. Paul’s, we should all use this time to think and dream about what that future looks like. How can we build on the many things we love about St. Paul’s?

The summer is a great time to visit different places while on vacation-including churches! Enjoy this time in celebration with others and take note of things that we might try at St Paul’s or look for in our next Rector. The transition process includes time spent together sharing this information and it will guide us in our journey forward.

They will hold their season opener on Tuesday, September 10th at 7 pm at the home of Rita McCarthy, 14 Bayberry Dr. Montvale (201-391-0194). St Paul’s K&C members traditionally knit baby hats and blankets for Preemie & full term babies born at St Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in Paterson. However, newcomers always are welcome to come just to relax for an evening of good conversation and refreshment and can bring their own projects to work on. If you would like to hear more about us, see Janet Tunick or Ann Hirsch.

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
