Prayer Calendar

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Reformed Episcopal Church of Spain.

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Minnesota Commission on Indian Work (MCIW); and for the Hispanic, Hmong, Liberian, Karen, and numerous multi-cultural ministries and faith communities throughout the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. We also pray for the parish of Saint Clement (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 care@stpaulsmpls.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: barbara@stpaulsmpls.org. Your request will be shared with our pastoral care team, as well as Saint Paul’s clergy.

General Announcements

The All Parish Meeting held on 13 October was a productive gathering of people ready to engage in this period of transition. Our wardens compiled the raw data from the day, and you can read it here. If you have questions or other concerns, please feel free to contact Meredith or Beth (emails in the right sidebar).
Advent Trees and Christmas Flowers are the perfect seasonal memorial. To contribute to the beautification of the Nave and Chancel, read the details here. Deadline for inclusion in the Christmastide bulletins is 15 December.
A directory of parish resource contacts has been compiled to help you easily direct questions about parish life during this time of transition. It is linked here, and also in the Resources box in the right sidebar.
Two of our tenants outgrew their rental spaces in the Beim House and have moved elsewhere. If you know of any non-profit organizations in need of space (up to four offices), please contact Junior 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.
