Winter Relief 2023


St. Paul’s, along with other churches in the Crofton/Gambrills area, will participate again this year in Arundel House of Hope’s Winter Relief; February 6 -13th is our week to help.  The 25 male clients are homeless AA County residents and are physically hosted overnight at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Parish; other churches support the effort by supplying 3 meals a day for 7 days among other items.

This is how St. Paul's participates in Winter Relief:

  • St. Paul’s Quilters provide individual quilts and frequently bed pillows

  • The  Outreach Team collects new men's regular and thermal underwear along with travel toiletries.

  • The Outreach Team organizes meal support consisting of:

    • one morning's breakfasts for 25 men

    • 1 day's lunches for 25 (done this year by Sunday School and Youth Group)

    • and one evening's supper for 40 people (clients and support staff).


All youth and children are invited to help pack lunches Wednesday evening, February 8 at 7pm in the St. Paul's Fellowship Hall.  The effort should take about half an hour.  Supplies will be provided.  Please contact with any questions or if you'd like to help!
