Prayer Calendar

 

 

n the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Church of South India (United).

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for all academic graduates, all educational institutions, and for the specialized chaplaincies in those institutions: remember especially ECMN’s School for Formation, Breck School, and Shattuck-Saint Mary’s and their chaplains; University Episcopal Community; and all those who work with campus ministries. We also pray for the community of La Misión El Santo Niño Jesús (Saint Paul).

Saint Paul’s weekly Parish Prayer List can be found here. If you wish to be contacted by a member of our Pastoral Care Team and/or priest, request prayers for yourself or someone else on the Parish Prayer List, or simply make someone aware of an acute or ongoing need, click the blue button below.

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.
