40 Minutes Logo

Forty Minutes, a between-the-services adult educational program, is taking a new look at the Old Testament. The featured lecturer for the series is Amy-Jill Levine, Professor of New Testament Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School. If you haven't really thought much about the Hebrew Scriptures since your days at Sunday School, you are in for a few surprises in this series.

These lectures are scholarly but presented in a way that is approachable; no academic rigors are expected of participants at Forty Minutes. All are welcome to join us in a quest to discover new insights into the scriptures that Jesus embraced. Sessions are from 9:40 to 10:30 a.m.


A Christmas Pageant

Children of St. Paul's enacted the nativity as part of the Haitian liturgy Sunday evening, Dec. 21. The pageant was revived after a two-year absence, many thanks to all the volunteers who helped coach and dress the children, and to the cast and crew!

Home of The Farmers' Market

The market is open from 8 a.m. to noon every Saturday through next April. Join your neighbors for a fun outing in a dog-friendly (leashed, of course) block party, and support our farmers and bagel makers and book sellers, etc. etc. etc.


Ned Bastow returns from mission trip

Ned and four others from the Naples Deanery met last week with the new priest in charge of the albergue that we support in the Dominican Republic. That's Ned above, standing outside the playground that was built with St. Paul's funds.

While there the team took a couple dozen of the older children and their teachers on a field trip to a nearby cacao plantation and chocolate factory.

Such an outing is a rare event for these kids, and the kids were thoroughly engaged in the experience and the tour was very well presented, said Ned.

Fr. Moises replaced Fr. Hippolito earlier this year.

Ned will be addressing the congregation shortly after the new year, and will kick off the annual sponsorship drive that raises the money to keep this important outreach ministry going.

It's 'Season' at St. Paul's

And that means the activities are ramped up. The Farmers' Market, Gift Shop, Unique Boutique, men's group, ECW, God's Gardeners, yoga and t'ai chi are in full swing. As to Sunday worship, we're back to three services. Everyone's busy getting ready for holidays and entertaining guests from the cold north. If you are wondering what to with your time, ask your neighbor at mass this Sunday. Perhaps he or she will invite you to participate in one of our many activities.
