The Parish Blood Drive was originally established by the St. Paul Catholic School Service Council as a school service project. It has developed into a parish-wide service project in which parishioners are given the opportunity to donate blood to the parish account held at the Northwest Florida Blood Center. Parishioners may participate in the quarterly blood drives held at St. Paul Parish or they may give blood at the Northwest Florida Blood Center. All parishioners and their families are eligible to access the St. Paul Parish Blood Center account. They would need to contact the coordinator of the St. Paul Blood Drives listed on the parish website ministries page for information on making a withdrawal.

In an effort to provide personal and neighborly help, this group of parishioners meets at 6:30 PM on the second and fourth Monday of each month. Volunteer hours are flexible and varied according to one’s schedule.
