This Sunday at Saint Paul's

Your Weekly E-pistle for Sunday 21 October 2018

This week begins the “Generous Grace” sermon series and our annual Stewardship Drive. You are invited to worship each week in October to learn and experience how God’s generosity towards us invites us to do the same for others. We are also collecting names to be included in our All Saints prayers; they may be added to the list near the Baptismal Font.

Thank you to the Altar Guild for hosting Coffee Hour this week; next week, the Vestry.
