The need continues to be extremely high with requests coming in almost every day. Please be as generous as you are able. This is an important ministry of our Parish. Thank you, Scott

All recommendations can be given in writing to a Vestry member and a final decision will be made in September by St. Paul's Vestry. The 2017 UVIP Micah Awards Ceremony will be held November 12th at Claremont Senior Center.  Holly will be selling tickets September and October to anyone who plans to attend the event.  More details about purchasing tickets will be explained at a later date.
