WindowJesus Christ came to serve and set an example for us to follow!. We know that when we serve others we are honoring Jesus. Further, we know that God created all of us as unique individuals, with unique talents. The Bible instructs us to use these talents for God's purpose. Many of the programs at St. Paul are designed to serve others. To list them all would require more space than this web page allows.
