This Sunday at Saint Paul's
We welcome The Reverend Tom Eklo back to Saint Paul’s pulpit and table. Thank you for leading our liturgy!
Deforestation of the Chancel will occur after Eucharist, and many hands make light (about 10 minutes) work of removing trees, gravel, and debris as we prepare our worship space for the start of Lent. Please gather swiftly in the choir stalls after the postlude to lend a hand.
Thank you to the Ministers in Liturgy for hosting Coffee Hour this week; next week begins our Lenten practice of soup and fellowship after the liturgy (see below).
An all-parish meeting will be held in the Kellogg Room after the liturgy and deforestation to learn more about the creative visioning work being done with the Reverend Susan Moss. Grab your Coffee Hour nosh and beverage, and please make every effort to join us!
In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for La Iglesia Anglicana de la Región Central de América.
In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for Province VI of The Episcopal Church. We pray for those who serve on the Council as Mission Area Team members, the Trustees, the Standing Committee, the Commission on Ministry, the Chancellors, and for the Treasurer of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. We also pray for the parish of Saints Martha and Mary (Eagan).
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.
Our weekly 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, click the blue button below.
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.

Faith in Action
Joyce Uptown Food Shelf joyfully receives Saint Paul’s weekly donations. We will continue our Advent/Christmas practice of using the blue Advent Calendar bag (available in the Narthex) through Epiphany as well. Following the guide sheet inside, collect and bless one item each day. Drop off your donations in the bins at Saint Paul’s as needed.
We URGENTLY need drivers: It’s just a one-month commitment (once a week!) to deliver food shelf contributions to the Joyce Uptown Food Shelf. The 2020 sign-up sheet is posted on the bulletin board next to the nursery. Because drop-off hours are limited (M-F 1:00-3:45pm, Th 5:00-6:45pm), this is a perfect opportunity for those who live close to church and have daytime availability. Contact Laurie Larsen with questions: 612-849-1348. Let’s fill the calendar!
22 FEBRUARY: It’s not too late to volunteer at Open Arms from 10am-12noon THIS SATURDAY! Contact Mary Neal to add your name to the roster and get details.
Ash Wednesday: We will begin the observance of a holy Lent with two Chapel Eucharists and the Imposition of Ashes, to be offered at noon and 7:00pm. Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.
1 MARCH: Join us each Sunday in Lent throughout March for a special Soup and Fellowship meal following the liturgy; more details to come. Sign up to contribute a container of soup or a loaf of bread on the list outside the Kellogg Room.
Have you taken the Saint Paul’s Food Shelf Challenge?
The need for grocery assistance never wanes. Let’s fill the baskets each week!!

IN THE NAME OF THE GREAT ONE…WHO CREATED THE SUN AND THE MOON AND THE EARTH AND THE STARS…AMEN I firmly believe that this deep story of Lazarus is a gift to us today. Wouldn’t we all right now want an experience to ‘just take all of this Coronavirus away’?...

"I am the resurrection and the life."
