Hands to Service

Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves joyfully receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations. Our theme for June will be BBQ/picnic accompaniments (chips, baked beans, brownie mix, etc). Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in baskets in the Narthex.

Food Shelf Challenge – bring SIX items during the sixth month!

Saint Paul’s and The Bridge for Youth are working together this summer to manage a small garden in their backyard. So far, we have done a major clean-up and planted some veggies. We are working with a youth coordinator to plan the summer, including additional plantings and a sculpture contest. If you’d like to join us, please contact Prisca Cushman

General Announcements

Father Marcus will be out of the office from 10-30 June for continuing education and vacation. Please direct pastoral care needs to Deacon Barbara or care@stpaulsmpls.org.

Saint Paul’s Parish Directories have been printed and are now available. Please pick up your labeled copy on the table in the Narthex (this will help us save on postage – thank you in advance)

Have you taken a Faith Formation class at Saint Paul’s? Never taken one, but have ideas or needs? Please take a moment to fill out this anonymous survey and help us create interesting, helpful, and innovative class offerings. Paper copies of the survey can be found in the Parish House.

Consider a donation of flowers to enhance the beauty of the liturgy this summer. You may select a specific date from 16 June through 30 October, and your memorial will be printed in the announcements. Suggested donation for two vases of flowers is $45. Please speak with Kathy Kullberg of your request, then write a check to Saint Paul’s, noting Altar Guild flowers and the date.

Two of our tenants have outgrown their rental spaces in the Beim House, and will be moving elsewhere at the end of June. If you know of any non-profit organizations in need of space, please contact Junior Warden Beth Carlson.

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
