Sacred Ground 
Have you been wondering about how you might learn more about the history of racism in our nation and how you might consider your own call to anti-racism learning and formation?

Midcoast Hunger Prevention Program — THANK YOU!
Dear people of St. Paul’s, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you for your contributions to last Saturday’s food drive. In the seven years that we have been supporting MCHPP in their mission to feed the hungry, it was the most successful ever. This will help feed many families and seniors as we go through coping with Covid-19. We still need to support them with the checks that we write. The end of this pandemic is in sight, but it will be a while before we get to the point we were before it started. I hope that you will continue to do this in any amount you can spare. Again, thank you for your contributions last Saturday. Bill Edman
