Ways to Serve
Gun Safety Bills pass PA HouseTHANK YOU! Your advocacy helped make history as the PA House of Representatives passed two pillars of the Common Agenda to End Gun Violence! With bipartisan support, they sent the Extreme Risk Protection Order and universal background checks bills over to the PA Senate. We will keep you updated about the continuing progress of this legislation, and opportunities for advocacy with your State Senator. For more information, contact the Rev. Erin Morey [email protected] 412-531-7153 ext. 13.

You can also donate financially to support the Food Pantry by clicking here. Contributions can be placed in the food box in the Undercroft at any time.
The flowers on the altar of St. Paul's are given in memory of loved ones, in celebration for an anniversary or a birth, or for any occasion for which we give thanks to God. The flowers are funded weekly and during festive seasons such as Christmas and Easter. After the last service they are distributed to the ill, the shut-ins, those in need, and parishioners who deserve recognition in the life and work of St. Paul’s. The proceeds from the flowers are used to fund all the Altar Guild expenses including wafers, wine, linens, candles, and seasonal decorations.For more information about how to donate flowers, email the church office or (412)531-7153x10. To volunteer to deliver flowers, contact the Rev. Erin Morey [email protected] 412-531-7153 ext. 13.
