The Lobster Boil at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church has been a DeKalb tradition since 1967. This fundraiser supports both church activities and social service agencies in the community.

As a part of the tradition, half of the proceeds of the Lobster Boil are donated to local organizations that directly help people in need.

On April 9, the Episcopal Church Women distributed checks to 10 local charities and organizations including: DeKalb County Hospice, Voluntary Action Center, Family Service Agency, Community Coordinated Child Care, Hope Haven, Safe Passage, Habitat for Humanity, Children’s Waiting Room in the Courthouse, Love in the Name of Christ and the DeKalb County Nursing and Rehab Center Auxiliary.

This year’s boil will be May 17. The deadline for ordering live or cooked lobsters is May 10. To order online, visit
