PACEM 2017 time is drawing near! Please join in the tradition of St. Paul’s hospitality by helping us welcome guests from the ladies’ shelter starting on Saturday, March 4, and ending on the morning of Saturday, March 11. Here are some of the ways you can help:
*Help with set up the morning of Saturday, March 4, or help with take down on the morning of Saturday, March 11 (approximately 2 hour time commitment)
*Bring just one part of one night’s dinner, or deliver juice or milk one day
*Help serve dinner and clean up afterward one night (approx. 2 hour time commitment)
* Serve as evening coordinator: check the sleeping areas and smoke alarms, greet guests and PACEM staff as they arrive, record number of guests and any comments, lock exterior doors and kitchen at appropriate times. (approx. 2.5 hour time commitment)
*Enjoy a tasty dinner with our guests and help to make them feel accepted and welcome (approx. 2 hour time commitment)
*Spend one night at St. Paul’s in comfy quarters, serving as an emergency contact (you will be briefed on whom to contact in case of emergency). This can be done by singles or couples. Ladies and gentlemen welcome. A PACEM employee will stay with our guests at all times. You are not responsible for the guests by staying the night.
Look for sign up in the Parish Hall beginning on Sunday, February 5.
*If you have questions or concerns or are just interested in learning more about PACEM, please attend an information session presented by Jayson Whitehead, PACEM Program Director, on Wednesday, February 8, at 6:15 p.m., immediately following the Evening Prayer service.
