St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is an inclusive worshipping community of believers and seekers who prays for, welcomes, and nourishes all who search for God, in order to promote wholeness and growth.

“ Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.”
