Holding each other's joys, sorrows and concerns before God in prayer is a spiritual practice that characterizes our life together at St. Paul's. In our worship services we pray each other's prayers together. Outside of our time together many parishioners make it part of their daily lives to pray the prayers of the parish community. You are invited to participate in your own way.
Thanks be to God
for the work of International Neighbors and the leadership of Jeannie Long in our ongoing school-supplies drive benefiting refugee children.
for the new life in Christ of Samantha Caroline Baggett, baptized here last Sunday.
for the faithful witness last Saturday of parishioners, friends, neighbors, our Bishops, and others, against hatred and violence.
for the generosity of all who have made 2017 pledges, and all the members and friends of St. Paul's who support our ministries.
Godspeed and blessings
to long-serving acolyte Katherine Webber as she prepares for her first year as a UVA student and Skinner scholar.
