Calling all Graphic Designers
As you may know, St. Paul's is launching a Capital Campaign at the end of the year. There are many subteams that are helping out with different portions of the Capital Campaign, and the Communications Team is looking for someone to help us build a brand and logo for the upcoming campaign. 
 
We could hire someone from our consulting firm to do this, but we would prefer to use the wisdom and talents of our own St. Paul's community. If you would be interested in participating in a collaborative design process with the communications team, please email Elisabeth Choi at This email address is being protected from spambots.

 We want to celebrate your birthday. Do we have yours?
Between our old, incomplete database and our database transition, we are missing several folks birthdays. We use birthday information to send birthday cards and to include folks in prayers of the people during their birthday week in celebration of your life!

To remedy this, we are asking that you do one of two things:
1. If you have signed up for the online parish directory:
a. please log into onrealm.org/stpaulsec 
b. go to "my profile"and "info"
c. edit personal information
d. enter in your birth month, day and year*

*The year is required on the online parish directory because if you are under the age of 18, profiles have particular limitations and privacy settings to protect our youth. If you are uncomfortable entering in your birth year and are over the age of 18, please enter in a birth year that puts you over the age of 18. For incomplete profiles, I've been entering in 1990 as the birth year because in my experience, 1990 was a great year to be born!

e. click "save" at the bottom of the page

2. Email the date of your birthday to Eliza at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and she will enter it into the system!

If you have any questions or problems, please do not hesitate to email or call (Eliza) at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call at 828-550-5242!
