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 162 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.
“How to Talk to Your Children About God”
In his article in the June 28th issue of The Living Church “Google or God? Both”, Jake Dell states that “We all do it. When looking for information, we use Google. It is no wonder then, that when people have questions about God, many no longer turn to a priest, but instead search for answers online.” The problem is that more often than not, the answers one finds may have little or nothing to do with the teachings of The Episcopal Church. One resource is a free, downloadable guide called “How to Talk to Your Children About God”. We encourage parents, and anyone else who is interested, to download the guide as a helpful resource.
