Thank you to the Evangelism Commissionfor hosting Coffee Hour; next week, the Building & Grounds Commission.

Upcoming Preachers and Presiders:

Prayer Calendar

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

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 All Saints (Minneapolis, Northfield).

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

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.
This year’s Coffee Hour hosting schedule is now linked in the right sidebar. A new feature this year: four All-Parish dates for those not sitting on a commission – now everyone can share sweets and savoires after the liturgy! Contact Ruth Mary Gens with questions, or to participate.
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!
Are you trying to discern a faithful response to the current migrant and refugee crisis in our country? Read these suggestions.
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.
