Believing that beauty attunes us to God, St. Paul’s invites congregants into an aesthetic experience of worship—through hymns, incense, ritual, poetry, and the space of the church itself—awakening us to Christ’s invitation of love.
St. Paul’s maintains a “program year” which starts at the end of September and continues through June. During the program year, there is a solemn Rite I Mass on Sunday at 11 am, which lasts for about 70 minutes. The Mass entails a sung liturgy, an anthem (short musical composition) sung by the choir, and congregational hymns.
During the summer, a shorter Low Mass with hymns is held on Sunday at 10 am. Parishioner Willie Martinez and fellow performers also offer a series of Jazz Masses.
Morning prayer is said in the Lady Chapel on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 am. On Friday mornings at 9 am, a Low Mass is held in the Lady Chapel.
The church is normally open for prayer and meditation Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 pm to 8 pm, and Saturdays from 2 pm to 4 pm. Please sign up for our newsletter for the current week’s schedule.
Confessions are by appointment. Please contact Father William Ogburn at 718-625-4126 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
