Breakfast at St. Paul’s Operating Every Saturday

I am happy to announce that the Breakfast at St. Paul’s is now operating every Saturday on a to-go basis. John & Dia Montgomery, a very nice and enterprising couple, are running the 2nd and 4th Saturday to-go breakfasts. As a result, there are volunteer opportunities available that I am sure our St. Michael’s parishioners are hungry for. 

To sign up for a volunteer shift, please go to the Sign-Up Genius link:

To sign up for the early shift, please contact Julie Marcus, either by text: 913-461-7133 or email:

Doing the hot, to-go breakfast requires 2 shifts of volunteers just like the old breakfast did. We have the early, cooking shift (6:30 – 9am). Due to social distancing we can only have 5 or 6 volunteers in the kitchen at a time to prep and cook. The second shift (8:30 – 11:30am) sets up the outdoor tables, fills the containers and bags with food/drink and distributes to the people, distributes the St. Paul’s pantry bags, and cleans up, all of which requires about 10 – 12 volunteers.

Bishop Bascom to lead online justice-based Scripture study
Bishop Cathleen Bascom will be the leader for an online May 11 Scripture study entitled “Rethinking Justice” at 6 p.m.

It is sponsored by an interfaith group including Topeka JUMP, Douglas County Justice Matters and a new interfaith justice ministry for Johnson and Wyandotte counties.
The Zoom-based event will explore three questions:
  • What is the scriptural imperative for people of faith when it comes to issues of justice?
  • What is the difference between doing justice and providing mercy?
  • How can people of faith effectively do justice in their local community?

There will be a second study on May 13, with a different leader still to be named.
The Pastoral Care Team asks you to include in your daily prayers the names on this list:
