This Sunday at Saint Paul's

A COLLECT FOR MOTHER’S DAY

All-nurturing God, from the womb of your love came forth all creation. You sustain us with your loving care always. Incarnate in Jesus, you lived as a human child under the nurturing guidance of Mary your Mother. Pour out the abundance of your grace upon all our mothers: those among us today, those who have passed away, those whose children live, and those who have lost children. Bless also, we pray, those who hope to be mothers someday, and those whose hopes for children have been frustrated. We thank you for all men and women who have mothered others in any way: substitutes, foster mothers, sage women, and caregivers. Finally, we pray for the wholeness and wellness of the Earth that bore us all and provides sustenance from you.
We ask this in your tender mercy’s sake. Amen.
 

adapted from prayers of Fr. Bryan Owen and Sherry McCameron Peyton

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
