This Sunday at Saint Paul's

Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens,
and I will give you rest.  Matthew 11:28

Feast of the Holy Family

The Blessing of the Animals will be held in the Nave as we celebrate the Feast of Saint Francis at 10:00AM, in person and via Zoom; you may find the bulletin here. Bring your beasties–furry or feathered, scaly or stuffed–for a blessing on leash or in carrier. Rev. Ramona is happy to bless photos of not-so-social companions as well.
With the forecast of rain and cold temperatures through the weekend, the front lawn will be suitable for neither person nor beast.

Join us for Coffee Hour fellowship immediately following the liturgy.

Prayer Calendar


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

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Anglican Communion throughout the world, and for the Most Rev. and Rt. Hon. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury; for The Episcopal Church USA, and the Most Rev. Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop. We also pray for the parishes of Saint Edward (Wayzata) and Saint Luke (Detroit Lakes, Hastings, Rochester).

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.
