Join Our 'Mini-Camino' Walks
We invite you to join us on a local ‘Mini-Camino’ here in Thunder Bay
~ 8 weekly walks around Boulevard Lake on Monday evenings at 7:00 pm.
We’ll meet in the main parking lot to begin our 5 km around the Lake.
(There will also be shorter walks.)
We encourage each walker to raise $100 over the 8 walks. The money is given online directly to the Anglican Foundation for their ‘Say Yes! To Kids’ campaign. With an online fundraiser, people can join our team and walk the route of their choice from wherever they are.”
All proceeds raised by St. Paul’s Mini-Camino will fund 5 post-secondary education bursaries for 5 graduating Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School students going to college or university.
8 Weekly Boulevard Lake Walks:
Monday April 25 ~ Daniel, Jouni, & I will be there for this
Monday May 2, 9, 16, *23, & 30 (*optional, ‘Victoria Day’)
Monday June 6
Monday June 13 ~ Jouni & I will be back for this final walk
Children, dogs, and family are all welcome!
If you’re busy Mondays, you may also walk whenever you’re free.
Blessings in Christ,
May The ‘Blessing Box’ Be a Blessing ~
I am sorry that we live in a world where we need Blessing Boxes to provide much-needed products to people in need. I am thankful for the positive support from St. Paul’s for the Blessing Box program.
My prayer is that when people open the door of the Blessing Box, they will not only select items they need but will be blessed by the healing light of God.
Please bring in your products and leave them in the large blue bin that is on the floor in the entrance way (the narthex) of the church.
The blessing box is stocked twice-daily from the bin.

Sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported the Men’s Breakfast Group’s 14th annual Charity Fish Fry. It was our most successful to date, raising more than $5,300 in proceeds from ticket sales, donations, and community sponsorship. Combined with the proceeds with our annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, we raised $6,000 to split between the Underground Gym and Grace Place. The Underground Gym that provides an after school program for at-risk youth is so grateful for our support each year, and it is with great gratification we are able to support Grace Place and their street ministries serving the poor, the homeless, and the marginalized. It is a real pleasure and privilege to be able to raise these funds and help towards the outstanding work these two organizations do in our community. And you all have made this possible!
POSTPONED - DATE TBA
BLESSINGS TO ALL
