This Sunday at Saint Paul's

We welcome the Reverend Anna Ostenso Moore as she presides at our Sunday liturgy.

Flowers on the retable this week are given to the glory of God and in celebration of the marriage of Cecilia Donnelly and Spencer Krum (21 September).

Thank you to the Building & Grounds Commission for hosting Coffee Hour; next week, the Faith Formation Commission.

Prayer Calendar

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Church of the Province of Uganda.

In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Episcopal Homes of Minnesota, Episcopal Group Homes, Guardian Angels, all other institutions that do ministry for and with the elderly, and local senior residential facilities and care centers. We also pray for the parish of Saint Matthew (Chatfield, 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.

The courtyard will be inaccessible until the end of the month while repairs are being made to the church’s heating system. Thank you for your patience.
Are you trying to discern a faithful response to the current migrant and refugee crisis our country is facing? Read these suggestions by Father Marcus.
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.
Have you taken a Faith Formation class at Saint Paul’s? Never taken one, but have ideas or needs? Please take a moment to fill out this anonymous survey and help us create interesting, helpful, and innovative class offerings. Paper copies of the survey can be found in the Parish House.

Consider a donation of flowers to enhance the beauty of the Sunday liturgy. You may select a specific date from 16 June through 30 October, and your memorial will be printed in the announcements. Suggested donation for two vases of flowers is $45. Please speak with Kathy Kullberg of your request, then write a check to Saint Paul’s, noting Altar Guild flowers and the date.

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.

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
