Serving through St. Paul's
As members of the Body of Christ, we are called to share his love with the world in real and tangible ways. Our members are very active in the shared ministries of our town, as well as in the ministries of our parish.
Seasonal efforts, such as the Connecticut Diaper Bank Diaper Drive and the September School Supply Drive, will be posted while these events are taking place.
New Start Ministry
New Start Ministry is an interfaith group headquartered in Woodbury, CT. We work in conjunction with IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services, New Haven) to co-sponsor refugee families for local resettlement.
Please let us know if you are interested in volunteer opportunities by visiting our website or contacting us using the email link below!
Financial donations can be sent to:
New Start Ministry

P.O. Box 5002
Woodbury, CT 06798.
Please make checks out to St. Paul's Episcopal Church,
with New Start Ministry on the memo line.
Woodbury Food Bank
The Community Services Council of Woodbury supports the Woodbury Food Bank, which provides weekly access for all authorized clients to shop for staple goods. This program serves both to support proper nutrition and to enable client families to conserve scarce financial resources for other household necessities.
The Community Services Council also provides limited emergency support on a case by case basis.
St. Paul's is proud to be an active part of the CSC, providing volunteer teams for the months of January and August. We are also a drop-off location for shelf-stable food items.
To learn more about volunteering or becoming a client,
contact CSC Director Bob Taylor using the link below.
Rector's Discretionary Fund
Our parish provides the rector with a limited fund to help members of the St. Paul's and Woodbury community in need. Support is offered once per calendar year per family at the discretion of our rector, and does not replicate other services provided by the town.
For more information, please contact our Rector, the Rev. Tuesday Rupp, using the link below.
Come back soon to learn more about the internal ministries of our church
