The St. Paul’s community is celebrating St. Francis’ Feast Day with a creation care outdoor worship service that includes the Blessing of the Animals and Holy Eucharist followed by a parish potluck picnic at Bryan Park, Picnic Shelter #1.

St. Franci of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, the poor and the environment, expressed his devotion to God through his love for all of God’s creation, praising all creatures as sisters and brothers under God, the custom of offering blessings of animals around or on his Feast day.

Please bring your well-behaved pets, a lawn chair/blanket, and a dish to share for this specially designed, family-friendly service to worship God our Creator, give thanks and bless God’s creatures (especially those who are part of our families), and pray for healing and restoration of God’s good creation.

Registration is required. CLICK HERE to register.

Join our Rector for an exploration of Expansive/Inclusive Language and the Episcopal Church. Conversations about language are happening everywhere, even in the church. During three sessions in August, we’ll learn more about how St. Paul’s and the Episcopal Church are thinking and making decisions about the language we use during our principal worship services. Our time together will include current materials, as well as discussing our own experiences of worship and language.

The Windhover | Rev. Charlie Dupree

Around this time of year, I like to notice birds . . . soaring. As the weather warms up, I like to imagine the birds, literally, stretching their wings as they ride the warm thermals that keep them afloat. How good it must feel to bend and stretch on the wings of the wind. Whenever […]
