This Sunday at Saint Paul's

Your Weekly E-pistle for Sunday 4 November 2018

The Feast of All Saints liturgy* will celebrate the ministry of those who have come before and whose faith points us to the loving presence of Jesus Christ. During this liturgy we will also enroll our four candidates for Confirmation and offer prayers for the dead and for those who mourn. 
*note: Hypoallergenic incense will be used at this service.

This Sunday also marks the 20th anniversary of our Dobson organ. Join us in the Chancel after the liturgy for remarks by Norm Mitchell, demonstration by Jacob Manier, and the opportunity to climb inside the organ (up two levels of ladders, if you’re brave; for safety, please wear athletic shoes if you intend to explore.)

Thank you to the Ministers in Liturgy for hosting Coffee Hour this week; next week, the Parish Choir.

WONDER Eucharist will be offered this Sunday (and each first Sunday of the month) at 3:00pm. Bring your littlest worshippers for a brief liturgy of stories, sacrament, and fun!

Bigger Hearts Philanthropy Party: Come to our celebration of mission this Sunday at 4:00pm. Click here to read the details.

Groveland and Joyce Uptown Food Shelves joyfully receive Saint Paul’s weekly donations. November’s theme is grab-and-go snacks (granola bars, fruit snacks, nuts, etc.); they also have need of personal care products. Please bring items to church as part of your weekly offering, and place in the baskets in the Narthex.
