This Sunday at Saint Paul's

Search me out, O God, and know my heart;
try me and know my restless thoughts.  Psalm 139:22

Feast of the Holy Family

Celebrate the Eucharist with us at 10:00AM, either in the pews or via Zoom (see instructions above); the bulletin may be viewed or downloaded. 

Each Sunday in July is an opportunity to donate funds toward our Harvest Pack event on 30 July (see details below in Upcoming Events) through a second collection; you may also donate online via Realm. We are so close to our target!

Prayer Calendar


In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Church of the Province of Central Africa.

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for all who will go to the Episcopal Youth Event (EYE) in Baltimore; for all ECMN camps and campers; and all embarking on mission projects during the summer. We also pray for the parishes of Saint James (Fergus Falls, Hibing, Marshall) and Saint Christopher (Roseville).

Upcoming Events

30 JULY: Lend a hand for Harvest Pack!
Join us after the morning liturgy to assemble meals for those experiencing food insecurity. We are looking for 15 more volunteers… continue reading

Our Harvest Pack Event is scheduled for Sunday, July 30, 2023, following our 10:00 am worship service. Harvest Pack provides nutritious meals to people experiencing hunger. Harvest Pack seeks to make healthy food accessible to all those in need. Harvest Pack meals reach people in Minnesota, nationally, and internationally. To date, 7 million meals have been packed and donated.

Our goal here at Saint Paul’s is to pack 12,000 to 15,000 meals. We need about 35 to 40 volunteers to pack meals. The time commitment is about two hours. We also need assistance with set-up and take-down. Please use the sign-up sheets in the back of the church or in the undercroft to be part of this community event. Feel free to invite family members and friends to help. Children and teens are welcome. (Kids under 7 need an adult to participate with them.) Everyone can help with the pack event! Snacks and beverages will be served to participants.

Our fundraising goal is $3000-3700. Currently we’re halfway there with donations of approximately $1800! Please consider donating to this ministry: cash donations can be made on Realm or placed in the Sunday collection plates. Please designate “Harvest Pack” in the memo.

Thank you for your generosity!

16 AUG: … and the dinner is easy! Join us for the final “Wings and a Prayer” supper from 6:00-7:15PM. Saint Paul’s will provide the main course (wings/brats/burger/etc) for the monthly gathering; you can bring a side dish, salad, or dessert to share.  

Faith in Action

July’s food shelf donation theme is CONDIMENTS: ketchup, mustard, hot sauce, etc. Each week place your items in the bins outside the Undercroft. p.s. General donations are always welome!

Email Laurie (or call 612-849-1348) to assist with delivery; thanks to Don, Peter, and Liz for their willingness to help!

From Joyce Uptown Foodshelf:
“Monetary donations are the most helpful and can be made through the PayPal link here or sent to Joyce Uptown at 3041 Fremont Ave S, Minneapolis 55408. For every $1.00 donated we can purchase $2.20 of food from our foodbanks.”

Saint Paul’s Little Library can always use more recent adult fictionand children’s picture books.
Your continued generosity helps make this neighborhood outreach possible – thank you.

The Ukraine Crisis Response Fund is still accepting donations to aid those displaced by the Russian invasion. Donate here.

And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
Matthew 25:40
