Catechumenate or (katəˈkyoōmənate) or κατηχούμενος
- Catechumenate comes from a Greek word meaning “to learn and explore.” The Catechumenate is a place where we explore what it means to be a human being and a person of faith within our community. Catechumenate provides a place to slow down, a space to truly listen to other people, and a time to honestly speak about what they believe. The small groups are the key. As one “catechumen” put it, “The Catechumenate provides that balance between chaos and structure that is sometimes lacking in our daily lives, but is so key in helping to learn about oneself.”
- Here at St. Paul’s we will be having a five session Catechumenate, beginning on Sunday, February 12, in preparation for reception into the Episcopal Church which will be held on March 19. Please call the office or email Rev. Sarah if you are interested.
For the month of February St. Paul’s will be collecting the following personal care items for the People’s Pantry.:
—Please note that all items should be regular sized items—not sample or jumbo sized—
We would like to focus specifically on these items so that there will be enough of each of them for all guests to receive. The People’s Pantry is open to anyone in need and is run 100 percent by volunteers. Donations may be left in the church vestibule in the bin marked “The People’s Pantry.”
If you would prefer to make a monetary donation checks are also accepted and should be made payable to: People’s Pantry.
Should you have any questions please contact Stacey Cameron at 978-374-7057.
The Cor Unum Meal Center
The Cor Unum Meal Center welcomes hungry visitors for breakfast and dinner every day. To date, it has provided over 1 million free meals to thousands of men, women and children who suffer from hunger in Lawrence and the surrounding area. Additionally, it offers a warm, safe place for people to socialize.
The facility has only two employees yet typically serves about 700 meals a day. Therefore, it relies on “an army of generous volunteers” to fulfill its mission. People help by serving meals, bussing tables or cleaning in the kitchen.
Our next volunteer opportunity is scheduled for Friday, March 17 from 4-7 pm.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to our Outreach Ministry~
