In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Church of Ceylon.
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 parish of the Redeemer (Cannon Falls).
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 firstname.lastname@example.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: email@example.com. Your request will be shared with our pastoral care team, as well as Saint Paul’s clergy.

Faith in Action
Joyce Uptown Food Shelf joyfully receives Saint Paul’s weekly donations. Our theme for September will be foods from other lands. Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in baskets in the Narthex.
Step up to the Food Shelf Challenge: Bring TEN items in over the course of the tenth month – let’s fill the baskets each week!!
29 OCTOBER:What Would Whipple Do?is a grassroots organization of people of faith whose goal is to dissociate the name of Minnesota’s first Episcopal Bishop with the five-state region’s I.C.E. headquarters. WWWD? will hold a protest, prayer vigil, and press conference at the Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building at 8am. Details here or on the event’s FB page; to join Saint Paul’s contingent, contact Angie Paulson or Deacon Babs.
3 NOVEMBER: Be ready to set your clocks back next weekend for Daylight Saving Time. You’re always welcome to come to church an hour early, but wouldn’t you rather catch a few more zees?
16 NOVEMBER: Mark your calendars for Saint Paul’s annual Fall Clean-Up Day. Come wield a rake or trimmers (indoor jobs can be found as well) between 9am-noon to ready the property for the coming w—– season. Coffee and donuts will be provided. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, clean-up will move to the 23rd.
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. —>
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!
Have you taken the Saint Paul’s Food Shelf Challenge?
Step up to the Food Shelf Challenge: Bring NINE items in over the course of the ninth month – let’s fill the baskets each week!!
