SUMMER CAMP FOR YOUTH
The Diocese of Washington summer camp program (EDOW) at Lions Camp Merrick, Nanjemoy, MD exists to promote the spiritual and emotional development of children, youth, and young adults through the fostering of a safe and positive environment for all. It is the goal of this program to encourage the growth of relationships with self, others, and God. Junior Camp (Rising 4th -6th graders) is July 20-25, 2014 and Middle Camp (Rising 7th- 9th graders) is July 27- August 1, 2014. Registration is open now at www.edow.org/camp.

Service and Outreach
SAINT PAUL'S CARES! Did you know that we have three designated handicapped parking places in the auxiliary lot behind Carwithen House? Please do not park in these places unless you are actually handicapped. If you need assistance getting to and from your car, the St. Paul’s Pastoral Care Team can try to find a helper on Sundays and Holy Days. Please contact us at 202-337-2020 ext. 31, or at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by filling out a blue pastoral care card found on the visitors' table in the Atrium.
YOU ARE NEEDED – CAN YOU HELP?
St. Paul’s strives to apply our talent, time, and treasure to reach out and uplift those in need both in our neighborhood and across the world. We welcome your involvement in:
Grate Patrol – Delivery of breakfast to Washington’s homeless population
• Food Delivery: 5:30 a.m. each Saturday & Sunday; Contact Glenn Marsh: Marsh_Glenn@emc.com.
• Bag Set-up: Any time before 3:00 p.m. Friday; Contact Tina Mallett at 202-965-9324 or email@example.com.
You Give Them Something to Eat
Foggy Bottom Food Pantry: Cuts in the federal food stamp program mean that those in need will be even more reliant on food pantries to meet their families' basic nutritional needs. Won't you share with those who need your help by bringing non-perishable, non-breakable (no glass jars) food items to St. Paul’s and placing them in the Commission on Mission basket at the rear of the nave. Canned fruits and vegetables are especially welcome. Your generosity can make a real difference.
