Women of St. Paul’s

Logo Women of St. Paul'sAll women who attend St. Paul’s are part of WSP and are welcome and encouraged to join us for our bi-monthly meetings – otherwise known as “Socials” – held in members’ homes throughout the year. It’s a great way to get to know each other.

We also host several events throughout the year – the English Tea in December, the HeArt and Soul Women’s Retreat in the first quarter of the year, a pie sale held during the annual summer BBQ sponsored by the Men of St. Paul’s (MoSP), and WSP Bazaar in the Fall. Funds raised are primarily directed at supporting historic preservation, mission work and scholarships for St. Paul’s and our parishioners, as well as for community outreach.

Please contact Sarah Karpie at 585-506-7625 or mkarpie@gmail.com if you have questions or would like more information.

Women of St. Paul’s Events

English Tea

The English Tea is an annual tradition and held in conjunction with the Heritage Foundation’s Dickens of a Christmas in Historic Downtown Franklin. Scones, tarts, dainty sandwiches, fruit, tea and many other goodies are served on fine china with beautiful linens and festive centerpieces. It is a warm and wonderful time to enjoy time with friends.

The tea is one of the biggest annual fundraisers for the Women of St. Paul’s. With the money raised, the women do various things for the church and the community.

We always welcome new volunteers, and equally important are those who attend, many of whom come every year.
