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 hospitality and generosity of Kevin Lonabaugh, who prepared dinner for our students last Sunday, and for Erika Viccellio and her team of helpers, who prepared our Lenten Wednesday dinner this week.
for the hospitality extended to PACEM guests at St. Paul's last week by Julie Lautenschlager, Anne Ribble, and dozens of volunteers, including members of Mt. Zion First African Baptist Church who provided dinner on Thursday.
