What is St. Paul’s?
St. Paul’s is a parish serving Savannah and the Episcopal Diocese of Georgia in the fullness of the Catholic and Reformed faith of the Anglican Communion since 1852. As a Collegiate Church, we are a parish that maintains a cooperative model of ministry which employs the many capabilities of the baptized in the pursuit of God’s mission.
In particular, we are home to a community of priests and religious that maintains the classic round of worship commended by the Book of Common Prayer. This includes the public recitation of the daily offices of Morning and Evening Prayer and the complete round of Eucharistic celebrations, recommended by the Prayer Book Calendar and Lesser Feasts and Fasts. Furthermore, we provide extra opportunities for the celebration of the Eucharist in the observance of Feast Days of our Lord.
Besides the College of Priests that serve our Altars and call St. Paul’s home, six members of the Parish belong to three religious communities; including the Oratory of the Good Shepherd and two Benedictine Fellowships: the Community of St. Joseph and the Episcopal Community of St. Benedict.
Established as the first Free Pew Parish in Savannah, St. Paul’s has attempted for 164 years to live into the sacramental and evangelistic implications of the recovery and continuing formation of Catholic tradition in the Episcopal Church.
We are Children of God committed to deepening our discipleship, adopting the Episcopal Church as the spiritual home where we live into the challenges of the Christian faith. We see the diversity of our religious histories, interests, and cultures as one of our strengths as a parish family. Primarily we are here because we find Jesus Christ in our worship, in our fellowship and in our ministry and service to others.
