In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand, and Polynesia.
In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for youth ministries within the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, especially for those who are involved with Teens Encounter Christ; for Circle of the Beloved; and all those in our faith community who are involved with faith formation ministries with children, youth, and young adults. Please also pray for the Convention to Elect the X Bishop of Minnesota on 25 January. We also pray for the parishes of the Epiphany (Plymouth, Saint Paul).
Pray for migrants, refugees, and displaced people throughout the world. Pray also for those in our country who have been taught to fear or hate people different than they are.
We are asked to reflect and devote prayers in honor and appreciation of 400 years of African American history and culture. Read more about this anniversary request from our Presiding Bishop.
Our Parish Prayer List can be found here.
If you wish to be visited by a member of our Pastoral Care Team (including our rector or deacon), request prayers for yourself or someone else on the Parish Prayer List, or simply make someone aware of an acute or ongoing need, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
This list is maintained to assist you in praying for the parish and the larger community throughout the week. To add your friend or loved one to this list, e-mail Deacon Barbara with your request and any additional details: email@example.com. Your request will be shared with our pastoral care team, as well as Saint Paul’s clergy.
Our votive candle stand is a beautiful symbol of our collective prayers coming into the light of Christ. When you light a votive, please consider leaving a contribution to help fund this amenity.
