This Sunday at Saint Paul's

We welcome The Reverend Lindsay Hardin Freeman back to Saint Paul’s table. Thank you for guiding our liturgy this week!

Join us after the liturgy this Sunday and throughout Lent for Sustenance: Soup and Scripture, and explore The Way of Love with fellow parishioners. Sign up to contribute a container of soup or a loaf of bread on the list outside the Bishop Kellogg Room.

Church and house tour: Have you ever really seen our church and the Beim Parish House from top to bottom? The Building Research Committee invites you to a guided tour of Saint Paul’s immediately following the 10am liturgy and Soup and Scripture. Help us gather information and ideas on possibilities for the future. The committee, co-chaired by Paul Carlson and Gene Tierney, includes Deb Jones, Julie L’Enfant, Monte Mason, and the Reverend Susan Moss. They welcome your input and creative ideas.

Prayer Calendar

 

n the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Province de L’Eglise Anglicane du Congo.

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for those involved in specialized licensed ministries throughout the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, including lay preachers, Eucharistic ministers and visitors, and lay readers; and for our musicians and worship committees. We also pray for the parishes of Emmanuel (Alexandria, Rushford).

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 and/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

19 MARCH: LIVE from Saint Paul’s Church on the shores of beautiful Lake of the Isles, it’s your monthly Vestry meeting! The business meeting of the parish will transpire from 7:00-9:00pm in the Bishop Thurston Room. All are welcome to attend.

How Can We Help?

Senior Warden Message – COVID-19 Update

“Church is not cancelled; it has changed.” This was the message shared in the bulletin and in the opening message of our first online Eucharist. In these challenging times of COVID-19 we need to find new ways to connect, new ways to gather, and new ways to replenish our spirit.

Last Sunday’s online liturgy and a new Wednesday night online Compline, which will start next week, are just two ways we have started to adjust to what will be our new temporary normal. Besides our services going online, we are also sending notes, making calls, and having time together on various social media platforms. Keeping connected is so important to our Saint Paul’s community. We are all in this together supporting each other. God is making his presence known in all these wonderful interactions.

Two weeks ago, when we suspended our in-church services and closed the doors of the church, we hoped to reopen our doors April 1. Unfortunately, with the Stay-at-Home orders from Governor Walz and recommendations from Bishop Prior, we continue to be closed to holding any kind of in-person or public gatherings. The current recommendation from the Bishop is through mid-May. Although disappointing, this is necessary to keep all of us and our neighbors healthy. Please understand that the church will be locked and closed to all church-related activities.

Although disappointing, this is necessary to keep all of us and our neighbors healthy. Please understand that the church will be locked and closed to all church-related activities.

Earlier this month we formed a COVID-19 response team. This team, made up of staff and Vestry members, is supporting and helping us live into this new temporary normal. This group will continue to watch for new ways for us to keep connected. They will watch for guidance from Episcopal Church of Minnesota (ECMN), the Minnesota Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO). I am so proud of the work they are doing and the amazing amount of love and care they have for our members.

Continue to watch for updates in your email, on Saint Paul’s Facebook page, or on our website. And don’t forget you too can help us keep connected – use our Realm online directory to reach out to your church family.

Stay healthy and know that God is with us, Beth
