This Sunday at Saint Paul's
Flowers on the retable this Sunday are given to the glory of God and in thanksgiving for their children and grandchildren by Cass and Jim Huismann, and in honor of their 38th wedding anniversary.
We welcome The Reverend Penny Warrenback to Saint Paul’s pulpit and table. Thank you for leading our worship this week!
Thank you to the Worship Committee for hosting Coffee Hour; next week, the Ministers in Liturgy.
A parish-wide meeting will be held after the liturgy where the Wardens will share information on the process to call a new rector and our status in that process. Most importantly, the Wardens and Vestry want input from parishioners on what attributes and skills we should be seeking in a new rector and what we want prospective rectors to understand about who we are. If you are unable to attend but wish to share your thoughts, please feel free to email Senior Warden Meredith Johnson.
In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Church of the Province of West Africa.
In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Anglican Communion throughout the world and for the Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury; and for the Episcopal Church USA and the Most Reverend Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop. We also pray for the parishes of Saint Luke (Detroit Lakes, Hastings, Minneapolis, Rochester).
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 email@example.com.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request will be shared with our pastoral care team, as well as Saint Paul’s clergy.

20 OCTOBER: The first Master Class will be held after Coffee Hour featuring author J.J. Austrian.

Use our Facebook Event to invite your friends, and join us to waken your inner writer just in time for NaNoWriMo!
21 OCTOBER: 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.
It only takes a spark (and 32¢) to get a fire going: 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. Each four-hour candle costs Saint Paul’s $0.32 and recent donations have covered only 1/3 of the actual costs. Thank you!
