Good Sam Outreach

Bethany House monthly collection is back!

Bethany House updates their "wish list" monthly. They are very grateful for your support!

Please place your donations  in the collection box in the Narthex when you come for mass.  (Please enter the narthex via the door on the left and remember to wear your mask and to social distance!!!)  The Good Sam Outreach Committee will deliver our donations to Bethany House at the end of the month. Thank you very much!

2021 Lenten Food Drive  - Awesome!

Good Sam together with Fr. Paul and the entire parish staff wish to thank you for the incredible response to our Lenten Food Drive. Your response was nothing less than overwhelming and we were able to help so many of the less fortunate in our community. The St. Paul Parish is truly awesome! May God bless you for your generosity.

Winter Coat & Warm Clothing Collection

Your gently used winter coats, jackets, boots, scarves, hats, mittens, and gloves are still needed.

Please place your clean donations in the covered chest outside the church’s front doors. As the chest fills, members of Good Sam Outreach Committee will deliver them to a local ministry.

Thank you for all you do on behalf of the poor in our area. If you have any questions, please email Ellen Santora, esantora@rochester.rr.com

Giving Tree - Thank You!

Thank you to all who generously donated through our Good Sam Outreach Giving Tree. A total of $1,820 was raised as fuel money to assist needy parishioners of Our Lady of the Americas with their heating bills. Also we received the note below regarding all the wonderful gifts:

Dear Parishioners at St. Paul’s,
We were so worried this year, that because of the Covid epidemic we would have nothing to give to our poor families for Christmas. It seemed inconceivable that so many people would have nothing with which to celebrate Christ’s birthday.

Were we wrong! How wonderful you were! So many gifts and so much food. So many happy families 97 (144 adults and 295 children)! Since Christmas we have helped approximately 25 more families. What a blessing you all are! How proud of you God must be that you honored His birth with love not only of Him but also of His needy children!

May He bless you in return with the warmth of His love and keep you safe and well,

Natalia Medeso & Sr. Julia Norton
