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 ministry of Christ the King church and school in the Diocese of Haiti, and for their hospitality last week during the exploratory visit of parishioners Michele Claibourn, Lachlan Hassman, and Mary Preston, rector Will Peyton, and their guide Roger Bowen.
for the ministry of the Schoolhouse Thrift Shop, a shared ministry of Charlottesville-area Episcopal churches, and for St. Paul's participation through the leadership of manager Leah Wise and board members Sheila Haughey and Ed Tourangeau.
