Wonderful Wednesdays This Week
On Wednesday, you are invited to join fellow parishioners for a meal and a discussion of the book Walk in Love at 6pm, in the Parish Hall.
Bring Your Palms
If you have saved your palm branches from last years Palm Sunday Mass, please bring them to church and place them in the basket in the Narthex. Palms will be burned (and the Alleluia will be buried) following the 10am mass on Sunday, February 23rd.
Join your fellow parishioners as we celebrate Shrove Tuesday mass and dinner, hosted by the Men’s Club, on February 25th at 6:00 p.m. Parishioner Dan Porter, chef extraordinaire, will prepare a delicious Cajun chicken meal. What does Shrove mean? The word shrove is a form of the English word shrive, which means to obtain absolution for one’s sins by way of Confession and doing penance. Thus Shrove Tuesday was named after the custom of Christians to be “shriven” before the start of Lent.
Ash Wednesday Masses
Mass and ash distribution will be held on Wednesday, February 26th, at 7am, 12:15pm and 6pm.
Stations of the Cross
Join your fellow parishioners as we pray the Stations of the Cross, every Friday during Lent at 6:00pm in the church.
Quiet Day of Reflection
All parishioners are invited to attend a day of reflection on Saturday, March 7, from 8:30 am-1:00pm. Our presenter this year will be the Rev. Lauren Flowers Byrd.
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, four 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 167 years to live into the sacramental and evangelistic implications of the 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.
