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!

Prayer Calendar

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!

Upcoming Events

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.

26 FEBRUARY:
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.

 

General Announcements

Norm Mitchell’s presentation for Saint Paul’s fourth Master Classevent was postponed because of last week’s snowstorm. Please watch the Upcoming Events calendar above for rescheduling info.
In the bleak midwinter our Sexton does his best to have the sanctuary heated for us all to be comfortable during worship. At present, our heating system is not 100% operational and, on especially cold days, it may feel less comfortable. Please be assured that work is being done to resolve the issue, and thanks in advance for your cheerfulness and patience. 
We have room in our lovely Beim House for several officing tenants. If you know of any non-profit organizations in need of space (up to four offices), contact Senior Warden Beth Carlson.
The Episcopal House of Prayer in the City invites all to join for their weekly Contemplative Prayer Practice each Monday at 6:30pm in the Auxiliary Classroom. If you are new and would like an orientation, feel free to come at 6:00pm.

Food Shelves

Have you taken the Saint Paul’s Food Shelf Challenge?

 The need for grocery assistance never wanes. Let’s fill the baskets each week!!
