Clergy Discretionary Fund

4th Sunday of Each Month:

Contributions to the

Clergy Discretionary Fund


Next Sunday, along with every other 4th Sunday of the month, all “loose plate” (i.e. non-pledged) money in the offering is deposited in the Clergy Discretionary Fund.  According to the canons of the Episcopal Church, these funds are to be used for “such pious and charitable uses as the Rector or Priest-in-Charge shall determine.”  


Over the past year, your donations have enabled the Rector to assist people in-need make their rent or utility payments, to purchase food needed by those who come to the St. Paul United Methodist Church Food Pantry, and to help fellow parishioners meet unexpected expenses. 


Thank you for your generous contributions.
