This Sunday at Saint Paul's

The Office of Morning Prayer is said each Sunday from 8:00-8:30am in the Chapel. All are welcome.

Thank you to the Ministers in Liturgy for hosting this week’s soup and stories social; we will use our Coffee Hour time during Lent to share and listen to one another’s stories through structured activity while enjoying soup, salad, bread, and community immediately after worship in the Kellogg Room. Next week, the Outreach Commission will host Coffee Hour.

WONDER Eucharist will be offered this Sunday (and each first Sunday of the month) at 3:00pm in the Chapel. Bring your littlest worshippers for a brief liturgy of stories, sacrament, and fun!

Choir Diary for 10:00am Eucharist

Make plans to join us on Friday, 19 April 2019 seven o’clock in the evening

a Scandalous Beauty: music and meditations for Good Friday

In Lessons and Carols format, this liturgy challenges us to shed our doctrinal and intellectual armor, to resist the apathy of well-worn narratives, and to risk stepping outside of our comfortable, tastefully domesticated liturgical routines to stand at the foot of the cross – neither rationalizing or recoiling, but looking Christ squarely in the eyes – as we contemplate the paradoxical beauty of his suffering and death.

Writings of B.H. Fairchild, R.S. Thomas,Flannery O’Connor, Thomas Schmidt, and Michael Coffey, with music of Edward Bairstow , Monte Mason, P .I. Tchaikovsky , Larry Fleming, Trond Kverno, and Sergei Rachmaninoff will be offered amidst incense, long shadows, and deep silence. The liturgy will last 75 minutes, and childcare will be available.

Please join us as God draws near to us through the scandalous beauty of theSon’s death.

“There are only two things that pierce the human heart. One is beauty. The other is affliction. ” – Simone Weil

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.

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
