This Sunday at Saint Paul's
Join us this Sunday to share our last Eucharist with the Reverend Marcus Halley before he leaves for his new call in Connecticut. There will be bread and wine and music and PIE. Yes, PIE! At Coffee Hour after the liturgy we will send Father Marcus off with our love and best wishes and PIE!
Thank you to the Outreach Commission for hosting Sunday’s Coffee Hour, with pie contributions from all commissions; next week, the Worship Commission.
Participants in this year’s Cottage Groups are invited to break bread with Father Marcus and one another at 5:30pm in the Kellogg Room. Please bring a dish to pass; beverages will be provided. Click here for more information, or contact Kathy Kullberg.
In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Church in Wales.
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 church of Gethsemane (Minneapolis).
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.

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!!
13 OCTOBER: A parish-wide meeting will be held after the liturgy where the Wardens will share information on the process to call a new rector and our status in that process. Most importantly, the Wardens and Vestry want input from parishioners on what attributes and skills we should be seeking in a new rector and what we want prospective rectors to understand about who we are. If you are unable to attend but wish to share your thoughts, please feel free to email Senior Warden Meredith Johnson.
20 OCTOBER: The first Master Class will be held after Coffee Hour featuring author J.J. Austrian. Other community members will be leading discussions throughout the year related to their areas of expertise. Use our Facebook Event to invite your friends, and join us to waken your inner writer just in time for NaNoWriMo!
