This Sunday at Saint Paul's

The Office of Morning Prayer is said each Sunday from 8:00-8:30am in the Chapel. All are welcome.

Thank you to the Worship Committee for hosting this week’s soup and stories social; we will use our Coffee Hour time during Lent to share and listen to one another’s stories through structured activity while enjoying soup, salad, bread, and community immediately after worship in the Kellogg Room. Next week, the Altar Guild will host.

Hands to Service

Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves joyfully receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations. March’s theme is MEATLESS MEALS (for Lenten observance). Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in baskets in the Narthex.

The Winter Goods Drive, the first donation campaign for 2019 by Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness (DCEH), is a collection for warm winter outerwear to support our neighbors experiencing homelessness. Now through the end of February you can bring new/gently-used winter items such as hats, gloves, scarves, and coats to Saint Paul’s; look for a bin in the narthex/lobby. Thank you so much for your support!

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 this year’s General Convention, the Episcopal Church took steps to bring justice and accountability to the Church at large with regard to how they address charges of clergy misconduct. A letter from the Episcopal Church in Minnesota states, “It is requested that this letter is posted and shared widely within each faith community to ensure that everyone in ECMN knows about this provision and can utilize it in order to see that justice is done.” You may read the email here, and use links within to learn more.

It’s the third month, so the challenge is to bring three items to place in the baskets in the Narthex. Only three items spread across the whole month of March – you can do it!

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
