This past week ended on some incredible “high notes.”  On Thursday, I had the joy of joining the children, staff, and volunteers of Paul’s Place Afterschool Program for our annual Thanksgiving Feast.  On Friday, our Day School children, their families and friends, our faculty members, and our Board members gathered for our annual Thanksgiving program “The 1st Thanksgiving”.  What a wonderful way to enter this special time of the year!  

This Thursday, many of us will gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Our tradition at St. Paul’s is to celebrate our Thanksgiving service with St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church and Blessed James Holly Haitian Episcopal Mission, our neighbor congregations here in Delray Beach.  This year, our Thanksgiving service will take place at St. Matthew’s (404 SW 3rd St.) on Thanksgiving Eve, November 22nd at 7 pm.  Dr. Paul Cienniwa, our director of music ministries, will be joined by choir members from all three congregations as they lead us in song. 

Speaking of giving thanks, I want to thank the many people of our parish family who worked so hard to make our annual Treasures and Trinkets Flea Market a great success.  This annual Fall event helps to fund the many ministries of St. Paul’s.  On behalf of our Vestry, church members, and clergy, THANK YOU!
