This Sunday at Saint Paul's
Your Weekly E-pistle for Sunday 16 September 2018
Please join your Vestry downstairs after the liturgy for a special round-table discussion about our ministry partnership! (If you missed the announcement sent out earlier this week, read it here.)
Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves joyfully receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations of personal care products and non-perishable food. Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in the baskets at the Narthex doors.
Upcoming Events and General Announcements
Our next volunteer opportunity at Open Arms is 15 September at 10:00 am. Join the Outreach Commission and help cook and package food for people living with chronic illness. It’s a lot of fun, and no experience is necessary! Please sign-up on the bulletin board outside the Rector’s office.
All newcomers are invited to attend our Fall Newcomer Social on Thursday, 27 September at 6:00pm. You can find more information by visiting any of our Information Centers (underneath the announcement monitors at church) or by contacting our Rector
The Gregorian Singers, our ensemble-in-residence, will be offering a concert on 29 September at the Basilica of Saint Mary, with a newly completed work by Monte Mason. Read about it here.
The Sanctuary Renewal has begun with plaster repairs; painting commences in October! Read the latest update from your liaisons.
Gift Cards for God: Bring your unused gift cards to the church over the next few week and help us listen to our neighbors. The New Vision Committee is ready to send out our community survey to our neighbors, and your gift cards will help entice our neighbors to provide feedback. Any gift card will do, so long as it can be used locally or online.
Grow your faith and sign up for The Path, Youth Confirmation, The Apostle Paul Class, and more! Sign-up sheets for Faith Formation classes can be found at any information center around the church (underneath the announcement monitors).
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 at Saint Mark’s Cathedral. Whether you are looking for a way to revitalize your prayer life or just searching for space and quiet, pray-ers of all abilities are welcome. If you are new and would like an orientation, feel free to come at 6:00 pm. More details and directions are here.
In the Diocesan Cycle of Prayer, we pray for the Episcopal Homes of Minnesota, Episcopal Group Homes, Guardian Angels, all other institutions that do ministry for and with the elderly, as well as local senior residential facilities and care centers. We pray for the 161st Convention of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota to be held September 14-15 in Mankato. We also pray for the Bishop Whipple Mission (Morton).
Our Parish Prayer List in its entirety can be found here.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request will be shared with our pastoral care team, as well as Saint Paul’s clergy.
