From the Rector
9th July 2020

In the continued face of the COVID-19 pandemic, Saint Paul’s will continue to facilitate worship online through our YouTube Channel. To have our YouTube link automatically sent to you weekly, subscribe to our mailing list. For the time-being, and in the interest of public safety, we will remain closed on Sundays for in-person worship. However, we hope to resume our Open Door ministry in mid July so that parishioners and visitors can use Saint Paul’s as a public place to pray. Safety protocols will be in place and we ask that everyone who comes to wear a mask. If you don’t have a face-covering, one will be provided.

Please know that while our building is closed, Saint Paul’s remains active in worship, prayer, and study. The Morning or Evening Prayer is offered Monday-Friday via Zoom (links provided to subscribers to our newsletter); we share time together with Coffee Hour via Zoom on Sundays at 11 am; and we have been reading James Cone’s The Cross and the Lynching Tree together in our book group. Projects to beautify Saint Paul’s are unfolding, including new flower boxes for the front steps of the Church, the design of a new sign for the Church, new doors for the Parish Hall, fresh coats of pain here and there, and a renovation of my office. Additionally, we are launching fundraising efforts with the production of a new parish cookbook! Saint Paul’s ministries have been altered by our present realities, but we are still seeking to discern God’s will for us as a parish. Please pray for Saint Paul’s that we may do this work faithfully and in the service of and for the love of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer and Lord.

You can help us in our efforts by making a donation here on our website.

A Prayer for a Time of Great Sickness and Mortality 

O most mighty and merciful God, in this time of grievous sickness, we flee unto thee for succour.  Deliver us, we beseech thee, from our peril; give strength and skill to all those who minister to the sick; prosper the means made use of for their cure; and grant that, perceiving how frail and uncertain our life is, we may apply our hearts unto that heavenly wisdom which leadeth to eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. The Book of Common Prayer, 1928 (p. 45)
