Welcome to St. Paulís Episcopal Church, Beloit WI!
Join the people of St. Paul's as we seek to grow in our love of God and for each other. We celebrate the Eucharist on Sundays at 10 a.m., and on Wednesdays at 12:05 p.m. You can join the MP's for Morning Prayer on Tuesdays at 8 a.m. - the coffee pot is always on. And the church is now air-conditioned so we can worship in comfort year round.
Please join us in praying this prayer for St. Paul's everyday: Lord God, thank you for our parish family at St. Paul's.† Let your Holy Spirit work within our parish so we may do your will in this community and the world.† Through your Son Jesus Christ.† Amen.
Deacon Gregg is leading a Sunday morning adult education class. The class begins at 9 and continues until about 9:30.
The Contemplative Prayer group will be meeting at 6 pm on Thursday evenings for 20 minutes of prayer followed by a sharing of readings and other materials.
Who are we?
St. Paul's is the oldest house of worship in Beloit, Wisconsin, having been built in 1850.† We are located in downtown Beloit, close to the Rock River, at 212 W. Grand Avenue.
We are a diverse parish, of young and old, "cradle" Episcopalians and converts, white, Asian, and African-American, blue collar and white collar,straight and gay - all are welcome.† What we share is a love of the Lord, and a conviction that we can grow in our faith and make a difference in the greater Beloit community.† "We follow Christ's teachings. We grow spiritually. We serve the needs of our neighbors. " (St. Paul's mission statement).
Trinity Sunday is Coming!
On Sunday the 19th we celebrated Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit who lives with us. Tongues of fire, a rushing wind - these figure into the story of the arrival of the Holy Spirit among the frightened and confused disciples. Jesus had promised to send them the "Comforter" but they didn't know what that meant!
The Sunday School's "big kids" helped out today as they "flew" red ribbons above the pews as a symbol of the coming of the Holy Spirit, and all the children handed out "flames" of fire to the parish, too.
Next Sunday, the 26th of May we will celebrate Trinity Sunday, when we talk about the oneness of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Join us for this great celebration.
