The Outreach Council provides financial support on behalf St. Paul's Church for a wide variety of community needs both locally and beyond. These gifts can be a one-time application, or renewed annually to assist the needs of individual requesters.
The Council designated funding in 2020 for "St Paul's Responds," which provided financial resources and donations of PPE to local organizations and gifts of meals to first responders and frontline workers.
The Council is reviewing its practices and procedures. More information will be available in June 2021.
On hold due to COVID, St. Paul's volunteers provide regular one-on-one reading and academic skill building for Kindergarten children at Rochester's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. School #9.
St. JoSeph's House of hospitality
As part of a community-wide ecumenical effort, St. Paul's volunteers prepare and serve a hot meal for up to 96 people who are among the working poor, unemployed, and homeless. On the first Saturday of each month from September to June, we gather at St. Joseph's House of Hospitality on South Avenue to heed our Lord's command to "Feed my lambs."
St. Paul’s Child Care Center, a separate and distinct 501(C)3 not for profit organization, and St. Paul’s Church share common values around the care and growth of young children. STPCCC provides care for children from 8 weeks to 5 years and is proud to offer full day Universal Pre-Kindergarten. The Center is a Pathways accredited, non-denominational center that values the uniqueness of each child, honors the preferences and customs that families bring with them, and seeks ways to share family traditions.
St. Paul's works with Family Promise of Greater Rochester (formerly RAIHN) to provide shelter, meals and a caring environment to families that have been temporarily displaced while they seek housing and employment.
