Fall Family Dinner - October 17
Three times this year we are inviting the whole parish family to come for dinner.  There will be a simple meal served. We will sit, eat, talk & pray together. 

The dinner will start at 5:30 pm.  You are invited to arrive as you can and get your dinner and join the conversation.  We will end at 6:30 pm with some prayer.  You don’t need to sign up and you don’t need to bring anything.  Just come and enjoy.

The Fall Family Dinner is Wednesday October 17.

Tourist in Our Hometown: Theodore Roosevelt Historical Site - October 21
The next destination for our Tourist in our Hometown trip is the Theodore Roosevelt Inaugural Site on Delaware Avenue. 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.

We are adding an optional tourist event of lunch at the original Anchor Bar, home of the Buffalo Wing.

The tour is October 21. We will be meeting at the Anchor Bar at noon for lunch.  The tour at the T.R. Inaugural Site is at 2 pm.  We need sign ups by October 7 so we can let the TR Site know how many of us to expect.  The sign-up sheet is in the parish hall.

All Saints' - November 1
St. Paul’s will celebrate All Saints’ Day on Sunday November 4.

As a part of our celebration we will remember in the prayers of the people family and friends who have died and are now in the nearer presence of Christ.  If there are people that you would like to have remembered during the prayers, please email our parish administrator Liz Brauza-Hughes at paulspals@gmail.com or leave a note in her box in the office by Sunday October 28.

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.
