Saint Paul's ChurchChurch News, E-PISTLE


This Sunday at Saint Paul’s:

Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations of personal care and non-perishable food. Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in the baskets at the Narthex doors. Thank you!

Mission Area Gatherings are your chance to connect with Episcopalians in other nearby faith communities. The Central Metro Mission Area of ECMN will gather on Saturday, 28 April, at Saint James on the Parkway from 5-7pm for snacks, sharing, and trivia. We’d love to see you there!

Our inaugural Commission Saturday is scheduled for 19 May. Please click this link to read more about it.

Father Marcus’s Open Office hours are suspended for two weeks, but will resume on 9 May at Common Roots Cafe (2558 Lyndale Ave South). You are invited to join him Wednesdays from 10am-1pm for coffee and conversation. A more confidential meeting can be scheduled by calling the church, or using Calendly.

If you missed any of Father Marcus’s sermons (or wish to revisit one that spoke to you), you can find them on his Word Made FRESH podcast on your Apple device, or Pocketcasts on Android; print versions are accessible on his blog of the same name, and in the Sermons section of this website.

Coffee Hour will be an opportunity for faith formation for all generations throughout Lent. We will journal, play games, dance, plant gardens in the Undercroft – all while reflecting on what it means to be a Christian. You are invited to bring your whole family each week to share in this experience with us.
