St. Paul’s hosted its fourth monthly “free laundry” event at Holdgates Laundromat on February 14. Providing each patron tickets good for four loads of laundry, StP assisted 18 families at a cost of $471 in washer and dryer fees.

St. Paul’s will fund its fifth free laundry event at Holdgates Laundromat on Wednesday, March 14, between 2:30 pm and 4:30 pm. Since two of our Outreach Committee members will be in Cuba on that date, we would appreciate having additional volunteers. If you can help, please advise the church office.
Further, if you know someone who would benefit from being able to wash and dry their laundry without cost, please advise them of the March 14 date and time.
We Need Eggs
The Annual St. Paul’s Easter Egg Hunt Easter Sunday, April 1st following the service. We need a lot of eggs so that all the children who participate can find some! Please consider donating a dozen or more plastic eggs each filled with individually wrapped candy. You can leave them in the back of the Church or in the Parish House on the bench. Please contact ChristineBorneman at office@stpaulschurchnantucket.org  and let her know how you can help.
