Parish Events

Clarence Hollow Farmer's Market - August 26
St. Paul’s is the featured non-profit at the Clarence Hollow Farmers Market on Saturday August 25.  We will be handing out our church tote bags, as well as flyers on Sunday School and some resources for prayer and Bible Study at home. 

This year we will also have a cut out of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry (the preacher at the Royal Wedding) for people to take their pictures with.

This is a great chance to get our name out in the Clarence community and meet some of our neighbors.  We need a few workers.  The Farmers Market is from 8 – 1.  We need two or three people to help staff the table.  The sign up sheet will be in the Parish Hall in August.

Fall Clean-up Day - September 8
As we get ready for the Fall Kick-Off it is also time for a clean up day.  We will be doing our Fall Clean Up Day on Saturday September 8 from 9 to noon.  There will be indoor and outdoor work and tasks for people of every age and ability.

This is our chance to get ready to welcome visitors and new comers to St. Paul’s and to welcome our children back to Sunday School.  Coffee, juice and donuts will be provided.

Tourist in Our Hometown: Maid of the Mist - September 16
This year we are playing tourist in our hometown.  The next event is a trip to ride the Maid of the Mist.  The Maid of the Mist is the iconic boat that takes riders into Niagara Falls.

We will leave St. Paul’s after the 10 am service on September 16 (leaving around 11:30).  We will go to Niagara Falls, grab some lunch and then take a ride on the Maid of the Mist.  No need to sign up ahead of time, we will buy tickets when we get there.

Hot Dog Sunday - September 23
Hot Dog Sunday is a St. Paul’s tradition.  For Coffee Hour after the 10 am service we will have hot dogs, chips and juice.

It is just a chance to hang out, have fun and eat – basically our three favorite things.

Hot Dog Sunday will be September 23.

There is a sign up sheet in the parish hall for grillers and servers.

Pastor Vicki may bring down the cotton candy machine to add to the fun.

Tourist in Our Hometown: Theodore Roosevelt Historical Site - October 21
It's the place where one of the most amazing and improbable moments in American history took place.  This historic site showcases the story of a man thrust into national prominence following great tragedy.  A man who went on to become one of the most influential U.S. Presidents of all time.  And you can experience it for yourself, at the house where Theodore Roosevelt was sworn into office, where the modern presidency began, and where a legend was introduced to the world. 

On October 21, our Tourist in Our Hometown adventures will bring us to the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Historic Site (641 Delaware Ave. in Buffalo).  We’ll have lunch together first (location TBA), and then we’ll tour the TR site from 2—3:30 p.m.

Tickets are $9.  Sign up on the poster in the parish hall before October 7, so we know how many tickets to order.

Tourist in Our Hometown: Forest Lawn "It WAS a Wonderful Life" - December 2
On December 2, Tourist in Our Hometown will visit Forest Lawn Cemetery for their acclaimed show “It WAS a Wonderful Life”.

Come with our group as we visit the historic and festively decorated Forest Lawn chapel when it is transformed into a live theater of the original critically acclaimed production of It WAS a Wonderful Life.  The narrator, John Lay – the first person to take up permanent residence at Forest Lawn, in 1850 – will introduce several of the new friends he’s made over the last 168 years at Forest Lawn.  They, in turn, will create musical, comical and poignant glimpses of Christmases past, when they enjoyed life on this side of the lawn. In the past, the season’s show has featured some key historic figures, including Shirley Chisholm, the first African-American woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives (where she served from 1969 to 1982) and the first woman from a major party to run for President of the United States; Robert Adams from the famed Adam, Meldrum and Anderson department store, Sir Frederick Cook, the arctic explorer who discovered the North Pole, and John Dover, a private who served in the Union Army during the Civil War as a member of the 54th Massachusetts Infantry, the first exclusively African American unit to fight in the war, Martha Williams, one of the founders of Children’s Hospital, and Dorothy Goetz Berlin, the first wife of famed composer Irving Berlin, who wrote the lyrics to White Christmas.  

The show takes place from 2-4 p.m. in the Chapel at Forest Lawn Cemetery.  Tickets will be $27-30 (exact amount to be determined).  Sign up on the poster in the parish hall by September 30, as this show sells out quickly every year.
