St. Paul is proud to announce its 2017 Circle of Honor Recipients,
  Sister Sandra Shaw, CSJ  
and Mrs. Elaine Lewandoski.
 
  The spirit of St. Paul lives within these individuals and was proudly displayed through their combined 40 plus years of dedicated service in our early years through the late eighty's. Their continued support of our mission, values and dreams for the future truly make them  Forever Falcons and we invite you to join us for this spectacular evening recognizing these outstanding individuals and celebrating St. Paul.

  • Place an ad in our evening's program book for your business or to congratulate a Circle of Honor recipient.
