Fall 2014 Events at St. Paul's

Healing Prayer with Anointing
On the last Sunday of each month, anyone wishing to receive anointing with Holy Oil for healing of body, mind, and spirit, is invited to come to the side chapel immediately after receiving communion. This is an important ministry at St. Paul's, and we are happy to be able to begin once again to pray for one another in this way. If there is someone in your life who feel might benefit from this special ministry, please invite them to come for prayer and anointing.

Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed.  -James 5: 13-16

Church Rededication and Blessing the Rectory

Here are some pictures of the rededication of our church and blessing of our rectory which took place on the afternoon of Sunday, October 27, 2013. It is truly a new season of blessings at St. Paul's. We would like to express our gratitude to everyone in attendance and to all who participated in making this such a wonderful occasion. And a very special thanks go to The Right Reverend Andrew M. L. Dietsche, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, for his inspiring words of support and his blessings. We warmly invite everyone to join us for worship and fellowship on Sunday mornings at 10:15 and to share in this new beginning in the life of our parish.
