Worship at St. Paul’s

St. Paul’s seeks worship that touches the heart and mind through word and sacrament for the sake of the kingdom. In a typical week, we offer four services on Sunday (three services on Sunday during the summer) as well as a midweek Eucharist; daily Morning Prayer services; and Faith@5, a Saturday evening service of Holy Eucharist.
