We team up with other churches in our community to assist the hungry and give various types of aid to those in need.

Our parish is one of four parishes formed into a cluster of parishes. This has broaden our outreach into the Catholic community. The “St. Brendan the Navigator” is the name that was chosen. The following parishes in addition to St. Paul are: St. Joseph in New London, St. Mary Star of the Sea in New London and Our Lady of Grace on Fishers Island, NY.  As of July 1, 2021 our three churches (St. Paul, St. Joseph and St. Mary Star of the Sea) are now one church called St. Brendan the Navigator Catholic Community. We are in the process of developing other educational and social ministries that will benefit our communities.
