This Sunday at Saint Paul's
We will celebrate the sacrament of Holy Baptism as Zoe Lou Walker, daughter ofLauren and Spencer, is welcomed into the household of faith at the 10:00am liturgy.
Flowers on the retable are given to the glory of God in loving memory of Dolores Champ’s birthday (20 July) by the Champ family; the font wreathing is given in celebration of Zoe’s baptism by her parents.
