About Saint Paul’s


We are an active, Christ-centered worshiping community of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, deeply committed to loving God and loving our neighbor. Founded in 1880 in what is now downtown Minneapolis, we are currently located on the north bank of Lake of the Isles in the Kenwood and Lowry Hill neighborhoods of the city. We are committed to being good neighbors and following the way of love pioneered by Jesus Christ.

Our community is made up of old and young; black, Native, brown, and white; gay, lesbian, and straight; rich and poor; lifelong Episcopalians and newer spiritual seekers; native Minnesotans and people from across the world. All of these identities, experiences, and perspectives are affirmed and celebrated. We celebrate our diversity as a gift from God and as a witness to the Beloved Community. As a diverse community, we lovingly serve those around us in the name of Christ. We believe that every person is unique and adds to the richness of our community and that we are transformed by relating to one another with openness and honesty.

Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, please know that you are welcome to worship, fellowship, grow, learn, and be among us.
