Adult Confirmation Class Q&A

October 25 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Adults new to St. Paul’s or new to the Episcopal Church are invited to join our fall Confirmation class. Confirmation is a ritual in the Episcopal church for us to express our faith in Jesus Christ, reaffirm the promises given to us in baptism, and publicly join the community of faith when the bishop visits us. If you already went through a practice of confirmation in another faith tradition, you would be “received” into the Episcopal Church in a similar ritual. If…

The Station at St. Paul’s Opens

After months of construction and renovation, the clergy, staff, and vestry are excited to open the doors to the newest addition to St. Paul’s. The Station at St. Paul’s officially opened on September 8, 2019, on the 90th Anniversary of the first service in the sanctuary. The building, constructed in 1961, was built for IBM and most recently housed the WSJS 600 AM radio station.

Today, the building opens following an extensive renovation made possible by the generous parishioners of St. Paul’s and the hard work of all involved. In addition to Sunday classes for children and adults, the building also houses an extensive amount of outreach programs including READWS whose mission is to reach, teach and advocate for struggling readers by training tutors, educators and parents to use the evidence-based, best practices of a multisensory structured literacy approach. Kids Café, another vital ministry of St. Paul’s, operates Tuesday through Thursday evenings and serves dinner followed by a homework session guided by volunteers who assist students with daily assignments.

If you would like to know more information about outreach at St. Paul’s, click here >>

Hurricane Dorian

From the Diocese of North Carolina:

AS WE CONTINUE TO PRAY the effects of Hurricane Dorian will be minimal throughout North Carolina, we also need to consider those devastated by the storm so far, especially our brothers and sisters in the Bahamas.

As always, we encourage those who want to help to support Episcopal Relief & Development’s Hurricane Relief Fund. This ongoing fund is used to provide help and relief following whatever storm develops, wherever it is needed. Already, Episcopal Relief & Development is hard at work in the Bahamas.

SPECIAL NEED

This particular storm also brings the need for relief even closer to home. More than 60 students at Saint Augustine’s University, Raleigh, call the Bahamas home, and Hurricane Dorian has impacted their families in ways we cannot yet measure as news and updates from the islands are still hindered by spotty communication. We do know there has been horrific flooding along with the destruction of both family homes and commercial buildings.

The Gamma Psi chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity at Saint Augustine’s is working to raise funds specifically for the students’ families affected by the storm. To contribute to this relief effort, donations can be made by check to (make checks payable to “Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Gamma Psi Chapter” and note “Hurricane Dorian Relief” in the memo line):

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Gamma Psi Chapter
c/o Lavar Stubbs
St. Augustine’s University
1315 Oakwood Avenue
Raleigh, NC 27610

Donations to the Bahamian families of Saint Augustine’s students can also be made online via the Diocese of North Carolina.
