A Message from Our Rector

Rev. Ramona

Summer on the Lake 2024

A note about our summer liturgies from Rev. Ramona…

Saint Paul’s continues to offer beautiful and meaningful Sunday morning worship all summer long, right up to fall’s Homecoming Sunday. Join us in person, bring a family member or friend,
or join us online from where you are!

We will be using three different liturgy sources over the summer:

  • June 2-30: Isle of Iona (Celtic)
  • July 7 – August 4: Church of England (Anglican)
  • August 11 – September 8: Book of Common Prayer (TEC)

As part of our ongoing commitment to creation care and being good stewards of the environment, we ask that you return your bulletin to an usher after worship ends, as we will
reuse them throughout each five-week immersion. And as always, please stay and join us for coffee hour in the Undercroft following each service: tasty treats, a bit of jigsaw, and good fellowship!

Reverend Ramona Scarpace, Rector - Saint Paul's Church Lake of the Isles

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.
