Join Pastor Lorrel Strom-Jensen on a Lenten Journey: Biblical Stations of the Cross. Through scripture, hymns and prayers we will follow the way of the cross and ponder the connections to this path that we experience daily in our own lives.
On this date, volunteers will gather at St. Paul's to help
package more than 10,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger.
We will begin at 10:00 am and finish by 1:00 pm.
Other congregations as well as Duke Lutherans are invited
to take part in this wonderful and productive activity.
This is a family friendly event; children over the age of four
are welcome. Visit their website at

Join Marilyn Bell-Hawley as she takes you on a short journey of her trip to Vietnam through Habitat for Humanity International. She was part of a team of eight volunteers from throughout the US, including Hawaii. They comprised a Habitat Big Build Team, which included several other teams from various countries such as Germany, Japan, and Kenya, that totaled more than 200 volunteers. Together they built more than 20 homes in the Province of Dong Thap, in the Mekong Delta, bordering CAmbodia. There will be a light lunch served. All are welcome!
