This Sunday at Saint Paul's

We welcome The Reverend Cynthia Bronson Sweigert to Saint Paul’s pulpit and table for Candelmas. Thank you for leading our worship!

Bring Your Candles to Church Day: The Feast of the Presentation of our Lord in the Temple is also known as Candlemas, when the prophet Simeon proclaims: “Master, now you are dismissing your servant in peace, according to your word; for my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.” Our liturgy will begin with prayers to bless the candles to be used in worship for the coming year(presence lamp lights, baptismal tapers, candle oil, votives, pew torch tapers, etc.), as well as your own candles, brought from home, and placed on the table at the back of the church, near the Baptismal font.

Thank you to the Parish Choir for hosting Coffee Hour this week; next week, the Altar Guild.

Our exploration of the Gospel of Johncontinues in the Bishop Thurston Room alongside Coffee Hour. Grab your nosh and beverage, greet your friends, and join us for spirit-led (and spirited) discussion.

Prayer Calendar

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

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for Province VI of The Episcopal Church. We pray for those who serve on the Council as Mission Area Team members, the Trustees, the Standing Committee, the Commission on Ministry, the Chancellors, and for the treasurer of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. We also pray for the parish of Holy Trinity/Saint Anskar (Minneapolis).

Pray for migrants, refugees, and displaced people throughout the world. Pray also for those in our country who have been taught to fear or hate people different than they are.

We are asked to reflect and devote prayers in honor and appreciation of 400 years of African American history and culture. Read more about this anniversary request from our Presiding Bishop.

Our Parish Prayer List can be found here.
If you wish to be visited by a member of our Pastoral Care Team (including our rector 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, please e-mail care@stpaulsmpls.org.

This list is maintained to assist you in praying for the parish and the larger community throughout the week. To add your friend or loved one to this list, e-mail Deacon Barbara with your request and any additional details: barbara@stpaulsmpls.org. Your request will be shared with our pastoral care team, as well as Saint Paul’s clergy.

Our votive candle stand is a beautiful symbol of our collective prayers coming into the light of Christ. When you light a votive, please consider leaving a contribution to help fund this amenity.

Faith in Action

Joyce Uptown Food Shelf joyfully receives Saint Paul’s weekly donations. We will continue our Advent/Christmas practice of using the blue Advent Calendar bag (available in the Narthex) through Epiphany as well. Following the guide sheet inside, collect and bless one item each day. Drop off your donations in the bins at Saint Paul’s as needed.

22 FEBRUARY: A team is being assembled to volunteer at Open Arms from 10am-12noon next month. Look for the sign-up shet on the bulletin board. Contact Mary Neal with questions, or to add your name to the roster.

Upcoming Events

9 FEBRUARY: Norm Mitchell will be the featured speakerat Saint Paul’s fourth Master Class event. Join him in the Kellogg Room after the liturgy for “Defeat the Tyranny of the Blank Page”, and hear some snippets of international intrigue as he shares highlights from The Prisoner of Hope, the soon-to-be-released second novel in his People of the Blood trilogy.

16 FEBRUARY: Want to read a really Good Book? Consider joining the group of curious minds meeting to explore the Gospel of John. The conversation continues after Coffee Hour on most Sundays in February and into March. Contact Deacon Barbara  to add your name to the roster.

General Announcements

In the bleak midwinter our Sexton does his best to have the sanctuary heated for us all to be comfortable during worship. At present, our heating system is not 100% operational and, on especially cold days, it may feel less comfortable. Please be assured that work is being done to resolve the issue, and thanks in advance for your cheerfulness and patience. 
We have room in our lovely Beim House for several officing tenants. If you know of any non-profit organizations in need of space (up to four offices), contact Senior Warden Beth Carlson.
The Episcopal House of Prayer in the City invites all to join for their weekly Contemplative Prayer Practice each Monday at 6:30pm in the Auxiliary Classroom. If you are new and would like an orientation, feel free to come at 6:00pm.
