Hearing Aid Donations Needed

Might you have some unused hearing aids around your house? We have seniors who desperately need them. If you have an old pair of working hearing aids please consider donating them to St Paul’s. We will ensure that they are cleaned, packaged, and presented to someone who has no insurance benefit or funds to afford them. Just put them in an envelope, or the original container, and place them in the Pastoral Care mailbox in Skardon Hall. God bless you for supporting a sister or brother in need!

Court Case Update

St. Paul’s Summerville has received a favorable opinion from the Supreme Court of SC. This opinion means that the “most likely” outcome is that we are NOW the legal owners of our local properties. We need to offer prayers over those churches who have lost their property. We need to grieve over losing diocesan properties too. The opinion from the Supreme Court is available to the public and may be found here to be read in full if you so desire.
