Grateful that our parish

was awarded a diocesan grant to support social justice endeavors, especially during this time of hardship for so many families, we will reopen the St. Clare lower level to pantry clients starting Friday, August 21, and continuing weekly as conditions permit.

To protect volunteers, clients, and, of course, school children (who are NOT on the premises during pantry service), we will require extensive precautions, including temperature checks, masking which covers both nose and mouth, social distancing, limited entry, sanitizing doors, carts, and other touched surfaces between clients, and no restroom access.


Donations needed and appreciated for pantry reopening!

Thanks to very generous donations in early 2020, and the subsequent COVID19 pantry closing, we have good supplies of some items, such as canned vegetables and  soups, so we DO NOT NEED these for late August. 

But, in contrast, we COULD USE cereal, tuna, canned pasta, pasta sauce, baking mixes, peanut butter, jelly, and, of course, especially in these times, any and all paper products and cleaning supplies, for which clients are unfailingly grateful.

Thank you for your support of 

St. Paul’s Food Pantry!




Prayer for Spiritual Communion

When participating in the Mass at home through media, consider offering this prayer attributed to St. Alphonsus Ligouri during Holy Communion: My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there, and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
