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 Altar Guild 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 Ministers in Liturgy will host.
