This Sunday at Saint Paul’s:
Thank you to the Parish Life Commission for hosting coffee hour. Next week: the Finance/Administration Commission.
Joyce Uptown Food Shelf receives Saint Paul’s weekly food and personal care donations. September’s theme is CANNED MEAT (chicken, ham, roast beef hash, Spam, etc.), but other non-perishable items are always welcome. Please bring items to church and place them in the baskets at the Narthex doors.
Our Sunday offering of the Angelus and Evensong continues this week in the Chapel at 6pm. Please consider joining us for this reflective service, the sung version of Evening Prayer.
In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Church in the Seychelles.
In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Episcopal Homes of Minnesota, Episcopal Group Homes, Guardian Angels, and all other institutions that do ministry for and with the elderly; for local senior residential facilities and care centers; and for the 160th Annual Convention of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota to be held 15-16 September in Duluth. We also pray for the Bishop Whipple Mission (Morton).
On our Parish Prayer List, we pray for Alex, Bea, Bob, Gary and Sue, Harvey, Jimmy and Kim, Joan, John, Krista, Mary, Nancy, Natalia, Rita, Ruth, Sue, Susan, Thomas, Weldon, and the Coopergard and Paulson families.

A call for confirmands: The time has come for Saint Paul’s to consider Youth Confirmation for some of our younger parishioners. If you have a youth age 12+ who might be interested in Confirmation, please use the following link to fill out an online information form. This will help us to create the most accessible Confirmation preparation process for all involved. If you have questions, please e-mail the Rector.
Help spread our digital footprint: Social media is an awesome tool for Evangelism, and we would like your help in reaching our full potential. “Like” us on Facebook (Saint Paul’s Church on Lake of the Isles – Minneapolis) and rate/review us. Let us know what you like about being a part of Saint Paul’s; who knows, your words might resonate with someone looking for a church to call home. The same is true for Google. Did you know the majority of people visiting Saint Paul’s are finding us by googling us online? If you have a Google account, you can become an e-vangelist by Ggogling us and then rating and reviewing us. Your words of welcome might convince someone to visit.
An invitation from Father Marcus: I want to set aside intentional time each week for us to get to know one another. My office door (which is open most of the time anyway) will be open from 1:00-4:00pm for you to stop in, say hi, ask for prayer, or just to hang out. If you want to bring lunch, we can share! No agenda at all. I just want to facilitate the building of relationships. I hope you’ll come see me. If you can’t come in person, you can call the church (612-377-1273) and we can chat.
