From the Vestry:
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
- Romans 8:38-39

At this very challenging time, the Rector and Vestry, want to let our St Paul’s family know that we hold you close in our hearts. We miss seeing all of you and want to stay connected.
Please consider volunteering or donating to:
Your Rector and Vestry are concerned for those who are isolated, or may be challenged to access food, medication, etc., and those whose financial circumstances have drastically changed. The Vestry is considering ways that we can be more intentional in our connection with you, our parish, as we face weeks, and possibly months, of social distancing.
Please reach out to any one of us, with ideas, questions, the need for information, or for help to any of the following email addresses email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please donate to St. Paul’s:
In our 150-year history, we have weathered earthquakes, fires, storms, times of war, and previous epidemics. Our St. Paul’s community is resilient, and together we will get through this!
We are praying for you, continue to pray for each other and the world.
Your Rector and Vestry: Allison Sass—Sr. Warden, Bill Davis—Jr. Warden, Erica Terry-Derryck—Clerk, Ann Gregory—Treasurer, Dylan Versteeg, Sergio Prieto, Lisa Strait, Will Cowart and Sharon Pilmer
