Welcome to St. Paul’s!
We invite you to come and worship with us! Our community continually strives to provide a holy place of worship that is inviting to all.
We sincerely hope that your worship experience with us will bring you closer to our Lord, God, and Savior, Jesus Christ. Please take the time
to sign our guest book at the entrance to the Church. And please accept our invitation to join us after Divine Liturgy next door in the
Parish Center for Coffee Hour. If you are not familiar with Orthodox worship, please ask one of our Welcome Committee members or one of the
Ushers for assistance. Are you a Christian? If you are seeking spiritual direction or would like to know how to become a Christian, please
