This Sunday at Saint Paul's

How dear to me is your dwelling,
O Lord of hosts!  Psalm 84:1

Ninteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Celebrate the Eucharist with us at 10:00AM from Saint Paul’s altar; the service will also be livestreamed on Zoom (see instructions above). You may view or download this week’s bulletin here.
A special offering will be taken for the procurement of Blessing Bag items for next week’s Outreach activity (see Upcoming Events below – please note new date). You may also donate online via Realm.

Join us for coffee hour in the back of the Nave following the service.

Our new high-efficiency boilers will be ready for service after a bit more electrical work (hopefully by mid-October). In the interim, you may wish to bring a jacket to church on especially crisp mornings.

Prayer Calendar

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for Le Province de L’Eglise Anglicane du Congo.

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Anglican Communion throughout the world and the Most Rev. and Rt. Hon. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury; and for The Episcopal Church USA and the Most Rev. Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop. Pray also for the 165th Convention of the ECMN to be held 27-29 October in Rochester MN. We also pray for the parish of the Redeemer (Cannon Falls).

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.
