Believing that beauty attunes us to God, St. Paul’s seeks to worship God in the beauty of holiness, engaging all the senses—through the poetry of hymns, incense, ritual, movement, and the marvel 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 High 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.
However, due to Covid-19, St. Paul’s is currently unable to allow congregational singing. Our Liturgy is spoken for the time being. We will continue to have organ music, as well as a Cantor who sings some parts of the Mass on our behalf.
On Wednesdays at 9 am, Low Mass is said in the Lady Chapel (entrance on Carroll Street).
The Daily Office (Morning and Evening Prayer) is said throughout the week in the Lady Chapel (entrance on Carroll Street).

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.
The church is normally open for prayer and self-guided walk-abouts on Tuesdays from 5:00-7:00 pm and on Saturdays from 1:00 – 3:00 pm.
