Special Services & Events

An Easter Liturgy for Young Children and Their Parents
Holy Saturday: APRIL 15 at 10:00am

A celebration of Easter that touches upon elements of Holy Week (Maundy Thursday and the Last Supper) but with its primary focus on the Resurrection. This is a somewhat less formal and more interactive service designed especially for young children with their parents. It will be followed by a reception and Easter Egg hunt.

Easter Dinner: Sunday, April 16 at 3:00pm
A St. Paul’s tradition! Sign-up at St. Paul’s Central or by calling the Parish Office – 203 847-2806.
Bring an hors d’oeuvres, entrée or side dish to share (6-8 people) and something for the beverage

can help. Audrey Cozzarin & Serafino Carri are coordinating the event. Sign up here to indicate that you’ll attend.
