The holiday season is upon us. Our congregation has been so generous over the years and we have brought so much joy to so many people. The giving tree will be set up in the church from November 30th through December 15th with gift tags for SStarbirth and Crossroad's Rhode Island's Domestic Violence Program. Both of these organizations have been so appreciative of our generosity. It is truly a blessing to be involved in this outreach, knowing that what we do at St. David's has touched the hearts of all these people. Gift tags for SStarbirth will have a name along with their Christmas wish. The gift tags for the shelter will be anonymous and will only have the gift item on them in order to maintain the safety of these women.
Please have all presents wrapped or in a decorative gift bag with the original gift tag attached and placed under the tree or in the appropriate bin by Sunday, December 15th so that all presents can be delivered on time.
Thank you so much for your generosity and have a blessed holiday season!!! - Cheryl Boscia
What's happening at St. David's
Meet Rev. Andrea
Church Beyond the Walls is a weekly ministry that turns Burnside Park in Providence into a church for the homeless and disenfranchised. St. David's goes there every other month to feed those hungry in body and spirit. Call our office for information.
Well into her second year with us, our Pastor has resonated with her flock with a style that is both engaging and challenging. Incremental changes both big and small: This is the future of our little home-on-the-hill. With a scriptural account of Jesus, and a message for our time, meet Rev. Andrea here.

I want to remind everyone here at St. David's, that you are all welcome to attend the worship service with me once a month, at the Hope Alzheimer's Center. Call our office for information.
