Welcome To St. Paul’s

We extend you a warm and unconditional invitation to worship with us. We come from all walks of life and welcome anyone who walks through our doors. When you visit us, you will be our respected guest. We will not single you out in an embarrassing way; you may worship God in solitude or engage us with conversation or questions.
Whoever your are, wherever you come from, whatever joys or burdens you carry, you are welcome at St. Paul’s.

More About Us

Many are feeling a sense of helplessness and despair as we learn about yesterday’s mass shooting which killed 19 elementary school children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas. We are at a loss for a response to a tragedy, which happened thousands of miles from Lynchburg and yet shakes us to the core in our shared humanity.
St. Paul’s  will open our doors today (Wednesday) through Friday from Noon to 5pm. Our sister Episcopal churches in Lynchburg will also open their doors over the next few days at various afternoon hours. We do this to offer a place of solace and prayer for anyone who walks through our doors.
Please, if you are in need of quiet and solace during this time, stop by St. Paul’s, or any of the Lynchburg Episcopal Churches.
 
Loving God, Jesus gathered your little ones in his arms and blessed them. Have pity on all who mourn for those lost to evil and senseless acts of extreme violence, innocents lost to the violence of our fallen world. As all things are possible with you, redeem this horror with the immensity of your love, and lead us to somehow love those who are responsible, filling our hearts with a spirit of forgiveness. Be with us as we struggle with the mysteries of life and death; in our pain, bring your comfort, and in our sorrow, bring your hope and your promise of new life, in the name of Jesus our Savior. Amen.

The Bicentennial Organ

For 200 years, St. Paul’s has been at the forefront of including innovative liturgical music to the worship and praise of God. Thousands of parishioners and guests have benefitted from the bold move in 1826 to include organ music in worship services. We today are recipients of those who, with vision and faith, went before us to provide an enhanced music experience. 
St. Paul’s is thrilled to partner with Parsons Organ Builders of Canandaigua, New York to install, as a part of the parish’s Bicentennial, a new organ for the church.  Please join us in our effort to “Pay it Forward.”
