Your Picture Requested Since we recently combined services, we thought it would be helpful to have a picture board available with the regular attendees of St. Paul’s and we will be devoting a couple of our bulletin boards for this purpose. Please send in a copy of your favourite photo to the office (in person or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org). Feel free to include pets in your photos. If you do not have a photo but would like to have a photo included, please talk to RJ in the coming weeks and he will take your photo before or after the service.
