St. Paul's is a welcoming community which gathers as the "Body
of Christ" to listen to the Gospel and share the gifts of the Spirit. An
inscription on our door proclaims: "In this church there will be no outcasts."
This statement of a presiding bishop of the Church has been embraced by the
community of St. Paul's as a commitment and challenge.
We welcome all who seek a community in which to worship. We welcome people by
sharing the sacraments of Baptism, Holy Eucharist, Marriage and Burial. As a
community, we gather to hear the word of God and do it in service to one another
and in ministry to the community and the world.
St. Paul's is people more than property or program. It is in the lives of its
members that the reason for St. Paul's is made visible-as the presence of God is
made more visible in families, schools, places of work and play.
The image of church as the Body of Christ comes to us from St. Paul, our patron
saint. This image presents the church as a living, dynamic and interconnected
group of people. It also expresses the importance of each individual whose gifts
are needed to nurture the life of the community.
We want you to know that we let visitors remain visitors as long as they wish,
but we also encourage you to grow into the life of our community and ministry
when you are prepared.
