What to expect at St. Paul's
All are welcome here - to worship, to learn, to grow, to rest.
On Sunday at 10:00 a.m. Morning Eucharist, you can expect a traditional Rite II Eucharist, with traditional hymns accompanied by beautiful music from our historic organ, familiar words that nourish the heart, and a place where people of every age are welcome. Be sure to come by for Coffee Hour after the service!
On Sunday at 5:00 p.m. Evening Eucharist, you can expect a contemplative Eucharistic service in the Celtic tradition, with moving contemporary music in blended styles, a meaningful homily rooted in Scripture and progressive theology, and time for prayer and connection.
On Sundays at 9:00 a.m. Rector's Forum, you can expect to share a morning coffee Rev. Tuesday as we learn more about the Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement through multi-media resources, where questions are encouraged! Join us afterwards for the 10:00 a.m. Morning Eucharist.
Every day you can expect to find a place of beauty and contemplation in our 19th century sanctuary, where illuminated clear glass windows look out to the beauty of creation, and clerestory stained glass windows add color to our prayers. Our doors are always open.
Most of all, you can expect the love and support of our clergy, our staff, and our parish leaders as you explore all that St. Paul's has to offer.
We look forward to meeting you.
The Rev. Tuesday Rupp & the Rev. Deacon David Rhodes
The Episcopal Church
From www.episcopalchurch.org: “We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world. We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.
We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of race, culture, gender identity or sexual orientation. We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.”
We are part of a larger body
St. Paul's is a member of the Northwest Region of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut. We are part of the wider Episcopal Church and the global Anglican Communion.
