This Sunday at Saint Paul's
We welcome back The Reverend Nancy Brantingham to Saint Paul’s as presider this week. Thank you for celebrating with us!
Join us downstairs following the liturgy for our Gratitude Sunday luncheon and PIE event, where we will share the bounty in our lives with each other and our parish, and maybe -just maybe- come away with a tasty pie for Thanksgiving…
Thank you to EVERYONE for providing our all-parish luncheon; next week the Outreach Commission hosts the first Coffee Hour of Advent.
Upcoming Preachers and Presiders:
Advent 1-4: The Revs. Leonard and Lindsay Hardin Freeman
n the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Falkland Islands.
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 parishes of Christ (Albert Lea, Austin, Frontenac, Grand Rapids, Red Wing, Woodbury) and Saint Andrew (Duluth, Minneapolis, Waterville).
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.
