Seeking Volunteers for B-SAFE
We need more volunteers for the B-SAFE program!  We'll be making and serving lunches from July 27 through the 30. Please consider signing up on the spreadsheet reached with the following link: B-SAFE 2015  Alternatively, if you can help out, but links and spreadsheets leave you cold, please contact Jean Moses at (617) 285-1408 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., ask her any questions you may have, and tell her when you will be available.
Also, we have donations from MOP and from Whole Foods Market of Brookline but we could use financial contributions.  If you'd like to donate your 'treasure' instead of your time, just make a check to St. Paul's and write B-SAFE in the note line. 
Summer Hymn Sing
During our summer Sunday services (mid-June through Labor Day weekend), we have an ongoing "hymn-sing," in which we sing hymns selected by members of the congregation. If you have a favorite hymn or two (or more), please let us know by submitting them on a piece of paper in the hymn-box located at the rear door of the church. We can't promise that all suggested hymns will make it into a service; but we will do our best to include all of your suggestions.
The Yard Sale is Coming!
The annual giant St Paul's yard sale is scheduled for Saturday, September 12.  Come meet our neighbors, raise some money for the church and have a great time. Volunteers will be needed for sorting and set-up the week before (Monday through Friday nights), all day Saturday, including clean-up folks later that afternoon and evening.  Contact Stephen Estes-Smargiassi at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 617-522-0572 or the church office to sign up. Of course, we're looking for your stuff as well. Bring books, clothes, toys, household goods, electronics and furniture to the Great Hall any time from Sunday, August 31 on.  Bring bikes any time between now and the sale.
Decision on Capital Campaign Consultants
After thorough and thoughtful review, we are very excited to announce the Vestry has decided to enter into a contract with Kairos Consulting to begin working on a capital campaign. As you likely know, having a 100+ year old church means lots of repairs and maintenance. Just right now there are 5 ongoing projects! Bigger and more significant projects (heating systems, organ repairs, etc) loom in the not too distant future. More exciting is the opportunity to formulate a vision for St. Paul's in line with our collective goals. Mission, outreach, social justice, and education are all things St. Paul's parishioners are passionate about. The capital campaign, aided by Kairos Consulting, will help us formulate, prioritize, and refine those passions into a concrete vision. It's a great time to be a member at St. Paul's and this is an exciting next step for our congregation.  You'll be hearing lots more in the near future, but if you have any questions please ask our Wardens (Arlene and Chris) or any members of the Vestry.
