Common Book of Prayer

Prayer Calendar

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Church of Ceylon.

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Minnesota Commission on Indian Work (MCIW), and for the Hispanic, Hmong, Liberian, Karen, and numerous multi-cultural ministries and faith communities throughout the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. We also pray for the parish of Saint Clement (Saint Paul).

Saint Paul’s weekly Parish Prayer List can be found here. If you wish to be contacted by a member of our Pastoral Care Team and/or deacon, request prayers for yourself or someone else on the Parish Prayer List, or simply make someone aware of an acute or ongoing need, click the blue button below.

A Season of Prayer: for an Election is a novena offered by Forward Movement. A novena is an ancient tradition of nine days of devotional prayers, often with a specific intention. In this case, we pray for discernment in voting and for the well-being of our nation, starting October 27 and continuing through the day after the election. You may download it here;  copies will be available at Collection Saturday. If you would like to pray them with another parishioner over the phone, reach out to a friend or email Angie to be paired with someone.

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 do that. If you are that person, please inform Deacon Barbara or Pat Trumbull. As Jesus said: Love one another.

Faith in Action

Outreach Update for October:

The willing hands of Saint Paul’s members continue to be busy helping others during the pandemic. Read the latest Outreach Commission update here with the introduction of our Little Free Library!


A message from Lorrie Sandelin at Joyce Uptown Food Shelf:

“Monetary donations are welcome! Right now we are doing a prepackaged food model, and so have a need for specific items. We can purchase food at our food banks much cheaper than you can purchase food right now: for every $1.00 donated we can purchase about $2.20 worth of food.”

Please visit their website and look for the yellow DONATE button on the home page or click the DONATE button below.
