Please consider making a gift to support our parish ministry.
We invite everyone to join in mass with music and a sermon. A pdf of each week’s Order of Service will be posted here for those joining us in-person or online. The Online Worship is not live, so you can watch it at any time.
From the Rector
It is a joy to announce that public worship has resumed again at St Paul’s as of Sunday 18th October. For everyone’s safety, seating will be limited to ensure physical distancing, and face-coverings/masks that cover your nose and mouth are required. (If you do not have a mask, one will be provided.) The Holy Eucharist will be administered in one kind (the host only) and we will be in compliance with all safety measures prescribed by the Diocese of Long Island and New York City.
We recognize that not everyone will be ready to return, which is why we will continue to facilitate worship online through ourYouTube Channel. To have our YouTube link automatically sent to you weekly,subscribe to our mailing list on our website: www.stpaulscarrollst.org
Our Open Door ministry continues for parishioners and visitors to come to Saint Paul’s to pray and walk around on Tuesday evenings from 5 -7 pm, on Saturdays from 1-3 pm, and other unspecified times, as able. Safety protocols are fully in place and face-coverings are required (if you don’t have one, we will provide a mask).
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 our community and for the love and glory of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer and Lord.

If there is any way that I can be of service to you or someone you know, I hope you will be in touch.
Faithfully, Fr William Ogburn+ Rector
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)
The people of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church welcome you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Whoever you are and wherever you have come from, we are glad you have joined us today. At the heart of our common life is the worship of God in the beauty of holiness, using our traditional Anglican liturgy coupled with choral music in our uniquely beautiful and historic Church. Drawing on ancient spiritual practices and engaging all our senses, worship draws our bodies and souls towards God. We worship so that we might grow in the love of God, and through the joy we find in our life in Christ, to share this new life with the world around us.
