Joyfully celebrating Easter together online AND in-person! The bishop has updated the guidelines for in-person, indoor worship, and we are now able to offer reduced capacity seating (approx. 50-60 persons) for an in-person Easter service inside the Church (registration is required). We will also offer Holy Communion of one kind (bread only) both during and following the service.

Join Us Online for a Special Christmas Eve/Christmas Celebration!
You can find our Service Bulletin with the order of service HERE.
We wanted to capture the spirit of Christmas in a meaningful way during this season when we are unable to all gather together in person. We know it is hard not to gather in person but hope this offering will invite you and your family into the holiness and joy of this season, as we celebrate the birth of Jesus and his message of hope, peace, and love for our world.
Join us as we usher in the Christmas Season with the premiere of our Christmas Eve/Christmas film. Below are a couple of ways you can watch the service:
- Participate with the St. Paul’s family! We will host a viewing or “Watch” party on Facebook. This option is similar to Facebook Live and allows you to watch this pre-recorded video in real-time with others from St. Paul’s at the appointed times below. (Note: this is the same service just viewed at different times) – www.facebook.com/stpaulsrva.
- Christmas Eve, December 24th @ 4:00 p.m. on Facebook
- Christmas Eve, December 24th @ 9:00 p.m. on Facebook
- Christmas Day, December 25th @ 10:00 a.m. on Facebook
- Watch anytime! The Christmas video will be accessible on our YouTube Channel, on Facebook, and above on our website starting at 3:55 p.m. on Christmas Eve through the entire Christmas Season. Pop popcorn, mull some cider or make a little hot cocoa and gather around the Christmas tree to watch at a time that is convenient for you or re-watch whenever you want.
Liturgy of the Longest Night, Live-streamed Holy Eucharist | Monday, December 21st @ 7 p.m.
This year, we will experience the Advent-Christmas season like no other as the covid-19 pandemic continues, disrupting our traditions and limiting our ability to travel and gather with our families and loved ones. For those for whom Christmas is already a painful, difficult and lonely time of year, this will be an especially hard Christmas. The Liturgy of the Longest Night, also known as “Blue Christmas,” is symbolically held on the Winter Solstice (December 21st or thereabouts), coinciding with the Feast Day for St. Thomas the Apostle (“Doubting Thomas”). This service creates a space to recognize and hold space for our own Thomist-like struggles of doubt during the darkness before Christmas faced by those living with loss and grief as we together wait in hope and longing for the Eternal Word Made Flesh to be born anew in our weary hearts and world. Please join us for this special live-streamed service (link to the video and live stream will be posted here on the day of service).Read More
