COVID-19 Updates

Worship

At the direction of Bishop Rowe, we are suspending all in-person worship and parish events, until further notice.  We are continuing to broadcast Morning Prayer at 10 am on Sunday on our Facebook page and posting the video on our Vimeo channel later in the day.  We are continuing to host many events on Zoom for all ages – subscribe to our e-newsletter for information and links.

Holy Week

Holy Week is, as the name suggests, the holiest week of the Christian year.  We are offering two ways to celebrate Holy Week and Easter at home this year.

Holy Week at home is activities for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and an at home Easter Vigil for your household.  You can sign up to get a Holy Week at Home packet here.

On the Day before Easter, April 3, we will be dropping off stuffed Easter Eggs so that you can have your own, socially distanced, Easter Egg Hunt.  You can sign up for the drop-off Easter Egg Hunt here.

Puzzle Exchange

We have a puzzle exchange located in the garden area in front of our building.  It works like the little free libraries. Bring the puzzles that you have finished and pick up a new one or two.  We are suggesting that you leave the puzzles in your trunk or garage for a day or two (Johns Hopkins says the virus might live up to 24 hours on cardboard).

During the winter the path to the box is cleared from the north side of the building (closer to Main St.) – so drive around, park on that side & walk past the red doors to the box.

Worship

At the direction of Bishop Rowe, in-person worship is currently suspended.

We are continuing digital worship at 10 am on Sunday. The service consists of Morning Prayer, and is broadcast on our Facebook page & posted on our Vimeo channel.  You can download a booklet with worship for the month of March here.  The worship for this coming Sunday can be found here.

We are doing Sunday School In A Bag this school year.  Bags are distributed the first week of the month and there is an activity we will incorporate in worship on the last Sunday of the month. Here are the lessons for March for download.

In addition, you can download a brochure that includes a number of different prayers you can use with your family.

What to Expect When You Visit

At the direction of Bishop Rowe, in-person worship is currently suspended.

Our Digital Worship is at 10 am on our Facebook page.  It is a Morning Prayer service. Morning Prayer is a service of the Episcopal Church that is based on Scripture.  The service starts with a confession of sin.  It then moves to two psalms that you can join in reciting.  Those are followed by a reading from the Gospel and a brief sermon.  After the sermon there is a Canticle (which is a portion of scripture said together), the Apostles’ Creed and prayers, including the Lord’s Prayer.  The service lasts around 20-25 minutes.

Connect With Us

You can connect with St. Paul’s on Social media.  Our Facebook page has events, pictures, videos and reflections through the week.

Our Instagram & Twitter are mostly used for inspirational thoughts.

You can find videos of worship services, Christmas pageants and Brown Bag sermons on our Vimeo channel.

We have launched a YouTube channel for St. Paul’s. Our first offering is a series of stories called the Jesse Tree. The Jesse Tree tells the story of the relationship of God with human beings from Creation through the birth of Jesus.
The stories are told by a variety of people. Each story is about 5 minutes long. We are posting new stories through the year.
