Faith in Action / Outreach

FAITH IN ACTION AND OUTREACH

 

Our parish has a lot of spirit.  We radiate Christ's love within our church congregation through worshipping together in services, bible study groups, social activities and caring for one another during the ups and downs of life.  This is a robust parish where we put our faith in action through hosting meetings for a local Boy Scout troop, Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon and Christian Yoga in our parish hall.  We also donate food from parishioners to our local food bank and engage in local interfaith services at Thanksgiving and Easter.  We participate in the Community Services Council of Woodbury, CT. and support Camp Washington, the Episcopal summer camp in Washington, CT.  Through Community Connections, St. Paul's outreach group, we give financial support to local organizations including the Greater Waterbury Interfaith Ministries as well as the historical Glebe House in Woodbury with money generated from several St. Paul's fundraising events.  Additionally we participate in New Start Ministry, helping a Syrian family of Muslim faith to settle in Waterbury, CT., in collaboration with the Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services, a not-for-profit refugee settlement agency based in New Haven, CT.  These are some examples of our efforts as Christ's servants to share and inspire one another by radiating his love, which gives life such meaning, purpose and joy.
