Manna Bags: Congregation-wide ministry that assembles bags filled with nonperishable food and care items for our neighbors experiencing homelessness. Bags are available in the marked baskets near the front door. Please take a bag or two to hand to a neighbor in need as you move throughout your week.
"One More Can" Collection at St. Julian's: Our Outreach Committee is sponsoring a year round collection of non-perishable food items for food insecure children in Round Rock schools. 1 in 4 children in our surrounding area are food insecure and at risk of weekend hunger. More than 20% of students in the RRISD are on meal assisted lunches, 10% of those children do not have steady access to food at home. By adding one more can to your grocery list while shopping and placing it in St. Julian's One More Can Barrel you are helping to provide a meal for a young person who goes hungry after the school day ends. These donations go to The Backpack Coalition, a collaboration of community partners working together to meet the needs of hungry children in Williamson County by providing them with nutritious and easily prepared food to take home on the weekends. See their website here. (The One More Can Barrel is always located near the front door of the church.)
Our Meals on Wheels Service Group could use your help! Our current deliveries are on Fridays to individuals living in Round Rock around St. Julian's. We are in need of a few more drivers. The deliveries take about an hour on Friday, and you are welcome to bring your young people with you. Your help is only needed about once every 4 - 6 weeks. The more people delivering the less often you will need to deliver. Please see Laura Tomaszewski or Judy Allen for more information. Or complete this form to request more info by clicking here.
Navajoland Annual Pilgrimage: Join your St. Julian family as we travel to the Episcopal Church of Navjoland in Farmington, NM where we will work on a community project together, worship, and visit with our Navajo friends and family. We are currently discerning dates for 2020's Pilgrimage and collecting donations through our ongoing "Change Lives Here, Change Lives Here" program. Stay tuned for updates. Please contact Paige Suffredini at firstname.lastname@example.org or Laura Tomaszewski at email@example.com for more information.
