Blue Christmas

Modeled after other Blue Christmas services around the country, this service provides a special time for reflection. The holiday season brings pressure on many of us to be upbeat and festive, while we may really be feeling loss, uncertainty, or simply the need to slow down. As we anticipate the celebration of the Christ child, this is one way for us to prepare a way for God in our hearts.

Please join us for this service on Tuesday, December 19, 2023,

at 6:00 p.m. in the Little Church

Confirmation Sunday

Each year in early November, Bishop Russell Kendrick makes his pastoral visit to St. Paul's and confirms the youth and adults who have been preparing in the months ahead. This is a special day for confirmands and their families as well as for the parish. Seen here are some of the Sunday School students sporting their own mitres, or bishop's hats.
