Ways to Serve
There are always many ways to serve both our St. Paul's community and the community around us! You can find all current opportunities below. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Andrea if you have any questions at all.
St. John's Food Program
Each week, parishioners from St. Paul's purchase grocery items and assemble weekend bags of groceries that are delivered to senior low-income housing complexes in Carnegie. We average about 20 bags a week. You can participate in this ministry by either purchasing the items (you will be reimbursed), or helping to assemble the bags. The sign-up sheet can be found here.
Neighborhood Resilience Project
Neighborhood Resilience Project is a new partner ministry of St. Paul's, whose focus is on trauma-informed community development in Pittsburgh. We are just beginning our partnership with them, and made a monthly commitment to provide 120 brown-bag lunches for kids on the first Saturday of every month in 2022, as well as two Saturdays this fall. You can sign up as an individual, a family, or a small group of people. If you would like to participate in this new ministry, email Andrea. We are working on having more service opportunities with Neighborhood Resilience Project in the near future!
St. Paul's Greeter Ministry
Come join the fun of the greeter ministry at St. Paul's! The role of the greeter is primarily to welcome people into each of our Sunday morning services, give them a bulletin, and reiterate any COVID protocols currently in place. Andrea will provide all instructions for those that sign up. Check out the sign-up form here.
Meal Train for Quinteros Family
This link was created by the families of Kara Leo and Jared Quinteros. Kara and Jared were the couple involved in a tragic hiking accident in USC in June. Kara died in the accident and Jared is now paralyzed and in a wheelchair. Kara owned the bakery on Beverly Rd, Kara Kakes, and she graduated from Mt Lebanon in 1999. She leaves behind her husband, Jared and their two boys, Oliver and Owen. This link will continue to be added to, but for now it has opportunities to help with preparing meals for the family. Please consider signing up and helping.
