Might there be a place for you at St. Paul's? We think so...

Each of the current members of St. Paul's has a story to tell of a time when they wandered through the doors and found a spiritual home. Many speak of a sense of the Holy that came to heart and mind on the first visit. Some of us were surprised to be welcomed.

The Episcopal Church welcomes everyone and that can be at times work, but of a joyous kind! We are an open an affirming community. Come and see!

So, St. Paul's on the Hill was founded in 1854 and is one of the oldest Episcopal Church in Minnesota. We have founded congregations, hosted Diocesan Convention and ordinations, and had not a few parties over the years. We've seen it all! We enjoy rich worship and fun fellowship.



We relish a good debate and a great vegan meal, or a BBQ in the summer. We engage in mission with our sister congregation El Santo Niño Jesus. We are learning still, after better than ten years, what that means to be brothers and sisters in Christ. Come learn with us.

The people of St. Paul's have a strong tradition involvement in peace and social justice issues rooted in our heritage as an progressive Anglo-catholic parish in The Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota(see Justice).

We also are a people who believes in excellence in worship (see Worship). We know from our tradition that there are many ways to worship and so we offer Solemn High liturgies with chanting, incense, and full choir as well as simiple contemplative liturgies in a wide range of styles. Festive receptions often follow our liturgies as a place to meet and greet.

Our vision as a Christian community is rooted in four areas:

+ Radical Hospitality+

+Inspiring Worship+

+Spiritual Formation+

+Passionate Advocacy+

These areas are the tap roots of our life in Christ. Because life is a process, we are learning what this mission means one day at a time. Want to know more? Come and see!

Blessings & Peace,
The Rev. Mark Thompson, Vicar
