This Sunday at Saint Paul's

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.  Romans 12:21

Feast of the Holy Family

Celebrate the Eucharist with us at 10:00AM. Since this week’s service is displaced to the Undercroft (see details below in Announcements), it will be offered in-person only; Zoom will resume next week.

Join us for Coffee Hour fellowship following the liturgy.

Prayer Calendar

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Church of the Province of the Indian Ocean.

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Episcopal Homes of Minnesota; Episcopal Group Homes; Guardian Angels; and all other institutions which do ministry for and with the elderly, especially our local senior residential facilities and care centers. We also pray for the parish of the Good Samaritan (Sauk Centre).

Saint Paul’s Parish Prayer List can be found here.

Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care Team has a request for all: as we practice our social distancing, do not let that extend to social isolation. Take a few minutes every day to call someone to see how they are doing – to reach out and say a prayer with them and/or find out if they need anything. One of the things that is so important right now is to connect with our community. If there are those who need help, please let us know and we will figure out how to assist; if you are that person, please reach out to Deacon Janet or Pat Trumbull. As Jesus said: Love one another.
