This Sunday at Saint Paul's

Your Weekly E-pistle for Sunday 23 September 2018

Thank you to the Building & Grounds Commission for hosting Coffee Hour; next week, the Faith Formation Commission.

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

Phase I of the Sanctuary Renewal is nearly reached; painting commences in October! Read the latest update from your liaisons

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.

Socialize with your pewmates! This year’s Cottage Groups are now forming, and will start meeting in October. Up to eight people will meet at a residence to share a meal and get to know one another better; by the end of the night, the next meeting is scheduled with the goal that everyone will take a turn hosting over the next nine months. Cost is minimal, but the experience is priceless! Sign up during Coffee Hour in the next two weeks, or contact Kathy Kullberg (612-374-4456).

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.


Community Coffice™ Hours

In September will be held at Common Roots Cafe on Lyndale Avenue every Wednesday from 10am-3pm. Feel free to drop in or make an appointment.

Books for Africa

The annual Books for Africa community book drive is approaching! Collection dates are 12-13 October (details can be found here). Help spread the word by sharing our Facebook event to your wall, and sign up in the Narthex to lend a hand. Contact Steve Clarke with further questions.

Prayer Calendar

In the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, we pray for The Anglican Church of Tanzania.

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 which was held in Mankato. We also pray for the parishes of Saint Matthew (Chatfield, Saint Paul).

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: barbara@stpaulsmpls.org.
