We believe that we are called to live out the values and teachings of Jesus by standing with the poor and the marginalized. Our outreach philosophy is to engage in hands-on, face-to-face works of compassion that further our mission of peacemaking and love.
FOOD DRIVE & HUNGER RELIEF
We also raise money for, and/or participate in, the drives for food items for the Inland Valley Hope Partners, and diapers for the family program at Epiphany Episcopal Church of Los Angeles.
On the third and fifth Tuesday afternoon's of each month, we prepare food at St. Paul's and feed the hungry at a local park. We usually serve between 60 – 80 people. There are many ways to participate, either by donating food, utensils and supplies, or by coming to help cook and serve. A sign-up sheet for the various foods needed will be posted each month at the coffee hour.
If you are interested in helping, please contact Jill Fulton at 909-621-3424 or email email@example.com
In the mid-2000s, following a renovation of the school facilities at St. Paul’s, the W.M. Keck Foundation created Options Preschool Pomona. This preschool serves 96 three and four year olds who would otherwise not be able to attend due to the severe lack of financial resources.
To help build the future for hundreds of our children, St. Paul's started the Children's Walkway Campaign. With a donation, a commemorative brick with your name will be placed on the special wall leading to the preschool classrooms. To find out more, please contact us or visit optionscc.org.
St. Paul's, alongside St. Ambrose in Claremont, St. John's in La Verne, and St. Mark's in Upland, is excited to be a part of Laundry Love Pomona. People from each of our parishes join together once a month at a laundromat in Pomona to be a loving presence and help those who are poor or homeless to do their laundry.
This is a wonderful new ministry that everyone can be a part of, even children.
Clergy and/or parishioners are involved in numerous interfaith coalitions such as Progressive Christians Uniting, Process and Faith, Uncommon Good, PUSD Superintendent’s Interfaith Roundtable, and the Anti-Bullying Crusade among others.
Due to our beautiful facilities and large meeting spaces, we host a number of non-profit groups such as Champion Youth, YWCA, the Lions’ Club, Generation HER, the local Neighborhood Watch, Immigration and Community Engagement, Parents of Murdered Children, and various twelve-step programs.
