Worship

Worship is at the center of the life of Saint Paul’s Church. Liturgies (worship services) are held either in the nave (main church) of Saint Paul’s or in Saint Paul’s Chapel. Whether you are a lifetime Episcopalian, a Christian exploring the Episcopal tradition, an inquirer and spiritual wanderer, or somewhere in between, please know that you are always welcome to worship at Saint Paul’s Church on Lake of the Isles.

As an Episcopal Church, liturgies at Saint Paul’s follow the forms for worship outlined in the Book of Common Prayer. Our worship lasts anywhere from 30 minutes (Morning Prayer) to a little over an hour (Holy Eucharist).

Families and children as always invited to attend worship, especially our monthly WONDER Eucharist which takes place on 1st Sundays in Saint Paul’s Chapel. Nursery care is available for our Sunday morning 10:00 am Holy Eucharist, but children are encouraged to worship alongside their parents. For our more wiggly worshipers, we have Worship Bags equipped with books, manipulatives, coloring pages that correspond with the scripture, and opportunities for children to offer their prayers.

Morning Prayer, Rite I – Sundays at 8:00 am in Saint Paul’s Chapel

Morning Prayer is a special part of our Anglican and Benedictine heritage. Just as monks and nuns who are called to the religious life mark the passage of time during the day with prayer and devotion, all Christians are invited to this practice as well. Marking the passage of day into night (evening) and then night into day (morning) through prayer and devotion is older than Christianity itself.

This is a simple, spoken service of Word and prayer that takes place in Saint Paul’s Chapel.

Holy Eucharist, Rite II – Sundays at 10:00 am in Saint Paul’s Church

The Celebration of Holy Eucharist is the primary way Christians have worshipped since the very earliest days of the Church. As we gather each week as a community around the Risen Christ, we continue to participate in the work of Jesus Christ. His continued presence among us animates and empowers of work of service and compassion in the world.

This is a joyous, musical celebration of Word and Sacrament that incorporates Anglican chant, traditional hymnody, ancient and modern texts, and meditative 21st century music. This service blends ancient and modern and includes a sermon that occurs each Sunday at 10:00 am. Nursery care is provided for this service.

WONDER Eucharist – 1st Sundays at 3:00 pm in Saint Paul’s Chapel

The WONDER Eucharist is meant to support the spirituality of young children and their families who often find attending a larger, more formal worship service intimidating or alienating.

This is a new opportunity to worship at Saint Paul’s Church on Lake of the Isles. This service of song, play, story, and sharing takes place on the 1st Sunday of every month at 3:00 pm in Saint Paul’s Chapel (beginning on October 7).

August 29, 2019
Dear Saint Paul’s Parish Family,

We are sorry to share so early in our journey with Father Marcus that he has submitted his resignation and will be leaving us October 6, 2019. He has accepted a position at the Diocese of Connecticut. In his new position, he will be the Dean of Formation and will also be working as a Missional Priest-in-Charge of a faith community. This is a wonderful opportunity for him allowing him to continue to strengthen his gifts. The Diocese of Connecticut will benefit as we have from Father Marcus’s passion. Although it is hard to see him go, we have learned and done wonderful things as a parish with his leadership and guidance over the past 2-1/2 years. It will be exciting to watch his continued growth from afar knowing we were blessed to have been part of his early career. Father Marcus’s letter to the parish is included in this email.

So now we begin to look forward. Beth and I will be in contact with ECMN and Bishop Prior to plan for an interim priest and to look at putting together a search committee. We will gather together and consider what we have learned about ourselves during our time with Father Marcus. This is a chance for us to evaluate where we are and to make plans for moving forward: what we want to be sure to carry forward, what things we might want back that have changed, and yes, what might not have been tackled yet that we want to explore? We ask that each of you give prayerful consideration to these questions. They will be foundational to our Rector search.

We know the amazing strength of this parish and are confident we will become even stronger from the challenge that has been put in front of us. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

Blessings,
Meredith Johnson, Senior Warden (meredithvj@gmail.com) Beth Carlson, Junior Warden (pbcarlson@comcast.net)


Dear Saint Paul’s,

It is with a mix of sadness and joy that I inform you that I offered my resignation to the Vestry on Monday, August 19. My last day as your priest will be Sunday, October 6, 2019. I have accepted a call to serve as the Dean of Formation for the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, a position that will also include serving as a Missional Priest-in- Charge of a faith community there.

Throughout my time as your Rector, I’ve tried to preach, teach, and exemplify a consistent message: each of us is called to grow in Christian maturity to meet the challenges and opportunities of being the Church in this new missional age. Our patron, Saint Paul the Apostle, calls this the “full stature of Christ” (Eph. 4:13). This means taking seriously our individual and collective calls to be leaders, not only within the walls of our parish but also in the wider community. Leading, especially in times of great change, means taking risks, being open to failure that leads to learning, collaborating with others, and standing firmly in our identity and purpose.

People across Saint Paul’s Church have heard this message, stepped up, and stepped forward. Together, we have faced down a major challenge head-on –tackling our budget deficit– and as a result are experiencing a renewal of energy and spirit. We have new ministries popping up all around, a greater capacity for innovation, and deeper commitment to Christ and the mission of God he invites us into. There are others who are still afraid to step forward or unsure where they fit, and that’s okay. Saint Paul’s moves forward together.

My new role will give me the opportunity to help form other ordained leaders in what we’ve done together: translating an age-old faith to a contemporary context. I am excited and honored to be asked by Bishop Ian Douglas to serve the Church in this role.

None of this takes away the anxiety, sadness, or grief that many will feel at this time. Transitions are always hard, especially when it comes when things are going well. I have not served as your Rector for long, but we’ve done a lot together. I will pray for you as you discern what leadership model God might be inviting you to try and who might best step into that role to walk alongside you as you continue engaging God’s mission. Your wardens are two of the most capable people I’ve ever met and together with your vestry and the entire community, as it has for the last 139 years, your journey continues.

There will be time to say goodbye, and I will continue to serve faithfully until my final day. In the meantime, the mission of God calls us onward. There are individuals and communities in need of the Gospel – and it is our job as followers of Jesus Christ to proclaim it, in word and example.

Faithfully, Marcus+
