Choir this Sunday
This Sunday at the 10:30 service, the St. Paul's Choir will be singing the Missa brevis of William Mathias (1934-92), which includes the Kyrie, Gloria , Sanctus, Benedictus, and Agnus Dei. Born in Wales, Mathias was a child prodigy who began studying piano at age three and was composing by age five. He composed a significant amount of music for the Anglican Church, and the Hymnal 1982 features his canticle settings.


Sunday, June 3, after the 10:30 A.M. service, the Acolytes will be having a pizza party in the Guild Room to celebrate this year of service. Parents are encouraged to stay as Mike Smith the Verger will be presenting his thoughts on the Acolyte program and discussing training in the upcoming months.


This year’s Parish Picnic will be held at White Bank Park located in Colonial Heights. We will have the last pavilion on the right (close to the restrooms). St. Paul’s will be providing Fried Chicken. We will be trying something new this year for the sides and desserts. We are asking you to PLEASE SIGN UP for the picnic. At the time you sign up we will let you know if a side or a dessert is needed. It seems in years past we have either had too many desserts or too many sides. We hope by emphasizing the need to sign up beforehand we can be more likely to have an even number of sides and desserts. The picnic will start as close to Noon as possible. Shorts and casual clothing are encouraged for the Sunday worship before the picnic. Please call or email the Church Office to sign up.


We want to honor our children here at St. Paul’s by celebrating their academic, athletic, and community oriented achievements for the past school year, along with any graduations from Elementary, Middle School, High School, or College. We will be celebrating their achievements at the 10:30 A.M. Fathers Day celebration on Sunday, June 17th. Please email your child’s achievements and awards to the Church Office no later than Tuesday, June 12th by 3:00 P.M. Information needed: Child’s name, grade level, awards, and certificates, any graduation information, or information regarding further education. If you have any questions, please contact the Church Office.
