This Sunday

All are welcome this Sunday, October 22, the Twentieth Sunday After Pentecost.

The Rev. D. Dixon Kinser will preach.

  • Holy Eucharist at 7:45 and 9:00 a.m. in the nave
  • Morning Prayer at 11:15 in the nave
  • Holy Eucharist at 5:00 p.m. in the chapel

Formation classes for all ages continue this Sunday.

Continuing through October, the Rev. D. Dixon Kinser is presenting Choosing Wisely: The Wisdom of the Proverbs for a High-Anxiety Digital Age at 10:15 a.m. in Colhoun A.

The Rev. Sara C. Ardrey-Graves and the Rev. Darby O. Everhard are continuing a six-part class, Episcopal 202, at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday, October 22, 29, November 5, 12, 19 in the chapel. All Christians struggle sometimes with knowing their own spiritual gifts and figuring out how to use them. Episcopal 202 is designed to orient us to the distinctly Anglican ways of prayer, worship, fellowship and service through the various ministries at St. Paul’s. Come learn how you might grow deeper in your faith in the coming year.

Child care for infants and toddlers is available from 8:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in rooms off the first-floor Preschool hallway, accessible through the Goodheart Entrance. Children’s Chapel is offered during the 9:00 a.m. service for children three years old and older.

All Souls and All Saints Celebrations

St. Paul’s will celebrate All Saints’ Day on Wednesday, November 1, at 10:30 a.m. at the side altar in the nave, and at 5:30 p.m. in the chapel with a service of Holy Eucharist. The names of loved ones who have died in the past year will be read at both services.

In addition, all who attend the 5:30 service will be invited to write the names of other loved ones on cards which will be blessed by the celebrant during the service. They may also bring framed photographs of departed loved ones to be displayed on a table. Those who are unable to attend the service may send names to Amy Schell at aschell@stpauls-ws.org for inclusion in the blessing.

St. Paul’s will also celebrate All Saints’ Sunday on November 5, remembering all saints, both widely known and those known to us among our friends and family. The names of loved ones who have died in the past year will be read during all the liturgies that day. At 5:00 p.m. in the nave, there will be a Choral Eucharist featuring the Requiem by Gabriel Fauré, sung by the St Paul’s Choir and the Choir of St Mary of the Hills in Blowing Rock.
