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. 




























Rededication of St. Paul's Church and Blessing of the Rectory

On Sunday afternoon, October 27th at 4pm, we will be celebrating the renovation of St. Paul's Church and rectory with a Festival Mass. We will also be blessing our interns from NYIP and the work they do here in our community. It has been a tradition each October to renew our commitment to the Church and this year we have much for which to be thankful.

Participating in the Festival Mass this year will be The Right Reverend Andrew M. L. Dietsche, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York.

Everyone is encouraged to invite friends and family to this service. It is a very important celebration and milestone in the recent history of St. Paul's.

Flu Shots will be available to the public, free of charge, on Oct. 22 from 9am to 3pm at St. Paul's.

A New Season At St. Paul’s


















We are very happy to be able to share good news of some significant happenings at St. Paul's:



Work was completed in July to replace the roof of the church and parish hall with a Landmarks Conservancy approved 50yr. shingle that has the dimensional look of a slate roof. Copper step flashing has also been installed. It's been a long time coming and it looks beautiful. We are very grateful to all of our friends who have contributed to this project through our capital campaign. This work will help to ensure that St. Paul's will be here to serve the community as a place of worship and spiritual transformation for many years to come.



In addition, restoration work has been completed on the interior of the church in the areas that had been impacted by roof leaks. Crumbled stone, plaster and flaking paint have been removed and the damage has been repaired and painted. Our sanctuary area is particularly beautiful and to be able to have it restored in this way so that we can all experience its beauty as part of our worship is very exciting. We hope you'll visit us for worship and fellowship on a Sunday morning in the near future. We feel strongly that this physical act of restoration and transformation will permeate the spiritual life of the parish as we move forward. It's an exciting time to become a member of the St. Paul's family!



And there is more.



Significant interior work has been completed in the rectory to make the living space ready for interns from The New York Intern Program, who will be living in our rectory until August 2014, (http://www.newyorkinternprogram.org/). Both full bathrooms have been gutted and completely redone. All three bedrooms have brand new walls and ceilings, new baseboards have been installed, walls, ceilings and trim have been painted and new lighting and flooring has been installed. In addition, we have reconfigured our kitchen space and gut renovated the second floor hallway.



These young people have committed one year of their life to live here on Staten Island to work with the Episcopal Diocese of New York's Staten Island Coordinator for Disaster Response as site supervisors. They will be trained in disaster response ministry and assume leadership roles as they supervise volunteer church groups from around the country who will be rebuilding homes devastated by hurricane Sandy. They will also spend a portion of their time together engaged in spiritual formation in addition to their service to the community. We are very happy to be able to partner with NYIP as a new site for their program. Please join us as we welcome these NYIP interns to Staten Island. If you would like to contribute to this program in any way, please contact us via phone or email or send your gift of support via regular mail. If you would like to contribute directly to the New York Intern Program, please click their link above for information.

Our sincere thanks go to The Right Reverend Andrew M. L. Dietsche, Bishop of The Episcopal Diocese of New York; The Reverend Stephen Harding, the Disaster Response Coordinator for the Episcopal Diocese of New York; Darrell Hayes, Staten Island Coordinator; The Reverend Stephanie Shockley, Director of the New York Intern Program; Sarah Nazimova-Baum, Chaplain and Worksite Liaison for the New York Intern Program, The Richmond County Interparish Council, The Reverend Canon Patricia Mitchell, Canon for Christian Formation, Episcopal Diocese of New York; Episcopal Charities and The Reverend Sam Smith; Episcopal Relief and Development, Trinity Wall Street and The Wardens, Vestry, Congregation and Friends of St. Paul’s Church. Without the input, support, prayer and encouragement from everyone listed here, none of the good things mentioned above would have been possible. These projects and their successful implementation are a sure testimony to the infinite grace of God and the faithfulness of his people.
