MONDAY MORNING ROSARY GROUP

All are welcome to join in prayer Monday mornings after preschool drop off (any time after 8 am)! We currently meet in the Gathering Space where we share our prayer intentions to pray for one another, our St. Paul's community and our community as a whole. If you are not familiar with praying the rosary, we have guided handouts to help you along each decade and each Hail Mary! This is a great opportunity to meet other people and pray alongside them. All are welcome!

ST. PAUL’S NTT (NAVIGATING TECHNOLOGY TOGETHER)

St. Paul's NTT is a group of parents who united in 2018 to discuss and help educate families about making safe technology choices for our children.  With COVID restrictions, we can't have our regular meetings but we do want all St. Paul's parents to know we are still here!!!  If you like our Facebook page, you will find a wealth of information with links to great books, articles and websites that help parents make informed decisions that will benefit their children.  We also have a blog that houses all of the research we have compiled and shared at past meetings.  And if you ever need support or information, you can email us!  We are forever dedicated to this cause and are always eager to help families navigate the digital world!
