E-pistle for Easter 2018

Saint Paul's ChurchChurch News, E-PISTLE

Easter Sunday 2018

This Sunday at Saint Paul’s:

Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations of personal care and non-perishable food. Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in the baskets at the Narthex doors.

Ready, set, EGG HUNT! Join us in the Narthex immediately following the liturgy for the annual Easter Egg Hunt, to be held in the Biem Neighborhood House. All young people (and those young at heart) are welcome!!

Are you new to Saint Paul’s Church? You are invited to get to know us better over good food and good fellowship at our Newcomer Social on Thursday, 26 April at 7:00pm, at the home of Errik and Whitney-Lehr Koening (3404 Bryant Avenue South, Minneapolis), To RSVP, please send an email to Father Marcus.

Father Marcus’s Open Office hours for this week are cancelled, what with the busyness of Holy Week; they will resume in April at Common Roots Cafe (2558 Lyndale Ave South), where you are invited to join him from 10:00 am-1:00 pm for coffee and conversation – no appointment, just drop in. For a more confidential meeting, schedule a private appointment by using Calendly.

If you missed any of Father Marcus’s sermons (or wish to revisit one that spoke to you), you can find them here on our website as well as his podcasts.

Prayer Calendar:

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we rejoice in the Resurrection of our Lord. Alleluia!

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the work of the House of Prayer, and all spiritual directors serving in the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. We also pray for the Breck Memorial Mission (Ponsford).

Thank you to the Parish Life Commission for hosting the Easter gathering in the Undercroft. Next week, everyone is invited to bring a treat to share!

Coffee Hour will be an opportunity for faith formation for all generations throughout Lent. We will journal, play games, dance, plant gardens in the Undercroft – all while reflecting on what it means to be a Christian. You are invited to bring your whole family each week to share in this experience with us.
