Shrine Mont Waiting List -- Due to an unusually high volume of early registrations for our July 13-15 Shrine Mont retreat, we are already filled to capacity! We have started a waiting list in case we have cancellations or if more rooms become available. If you are interested in adding your name to this list, please call the church office at 295-2156.
A Word from the Treasurer – Realizing that many parishioners are away for part of the summer, the Vestry asks that you keep up your pledge payments so that we can meet our regular monthly expenses. We are grateful for your generosity.
Community Night – Our final community night dinner and Wednesday evening service of this school year was May 23, 2012. The dinners and the Wednesday night services will resume in September.
Ordination of Rob Morris to the Transitional Diaconate - Robert Lee Morris will be ordained to the Transitional Diaconate on Saturday, June 9, 2012, at 10:30 a.m. at Holy Comforter in Richmond. Rob was sponsored for ordination by Church of Our Saviour, and we got to know him as an intern here at St. Paul's.

Men's Bible Study – School is out but the Men's Bible Study is moving into the summer continuing our discussion of the Gospel of Mark. Come join us Wednesdays, 7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m., for bagels and coffee!
Baptisms – Our next baptisms will be on Sunday, August 19, at the 10 a.m. service. If you or a family member would like to be baptized, please contact a member of the clergy.
Reel Theology: Summer films and theological reflections - Again this summer we are planning to show a series of films that work well as a basis for a theological reflection in June and July. Come join us on Wednesday nights beginning June 13. Since we don't have Community Night during the summer, eat before you come, or brown bag it - we'll provide popcorn. The movies will start promptly at 7; the discussion will follow, after a short break. If you want to come just for the movie, that's OK too. We also have one movie for kids of all ages: "Up".
Here is this summer's lineup:
June 13 - Little Miss Sunshine (2006) (101 min)
June 20 - Priest (1994) (105 min)
June 27 - Lilies of the Field (1963) (94 min)
