Good day St. Paul's,

To comply with provincial restrictions, we will continue to physically distance for Sunday services. Please maintain a one pew buffer between yourself and other parishioners and, if in the same row, please keep at least 2 metres from those from other households. Passing the peace will once again be done as visually passing of the peace from your seats but we will continue to serve communion as we were the last few weeks. Masking will also continue. Masks continue to be available for those without one.

Our 10AM Sunday service will also continue to be available online as a live-stream and Sunday's bulletin is attached here. To find our live-stream service, please visit our website and visit the Events tab and click on the “St. Paul’s Sunday Service” event to find links to our YouTube Channel.

As always, please read on for more announcements.

Community Corner for Sunday, October 10
  • Happy Thanksgiving! Please consider pledging financial support to any of the organizations who assist with Thanksgiving meals or food security in Edmonton, including Hope Mission, The Mustard Seed, Bissell Centre, the West End Seniors centre and the Food Bank, to name a few.
  • Please plan to join us for a screening of the movie “The Secret Path” after church on Sunday, October 17. This movie acknowledges a dark part of Canada’s history with the hope of starting our country on a road to reconciliation. It features Gord Downie’s music and the graphic novel by Jeff Lemire, telling the story of Chanie Wenjack, a twelve-year-old boy who died in 1966 after running away from Cecilia Jeffrey Indian Residential School to return to his family over 400 miles away. You can also watch the movie at
  • What do you think of when we talk about “Outreach?” Do you think of serving the community? Addressing a need? Consultation? Idea exchange? It’s any of these options, all of these options, and more. Watch the Community Corner Blog in the coming weeks as we have posts on what outreach means to different people in St Paul’s.
