Welcome to the weekly update for September 8, with everything you need to know about what's happening at church and around the parish!
Coming Up at St. Paul's

2022 Pledge Drive Planning - Tonight

The Pledge Drive co-chairs (Anthony Howard Crisci, Rob Walker & Bryan McBeth) began a conversation to gather feedback  about past pledge drives as they plan for the upcoming  2022 drive scheduled to take place this October. The conversation will continue tonight, September 8th at 6 pm over Zoom.  It is not to late to weigh in! Click here for more information and the link to the meeting.  

September 12 - Regathering Sunday!

Gather for worship in person or online this Sunday at St. Paul's as the new program year gets underway! Beginning this Sunday, Holy Eucharist will  be celebrated at 9 and 11 am and  followed by Lemonade on the Lawn. Both services will be held in person in the church. The  11 am service, with music led by the St. Paul's Choir,  will be livestreamed  online. While indoors, in-person worship includes distancing and masks to ensure safety for all.

All Parish Gathering: September 18th, 9am - NOW ONLINE

In an effort to make sure every voice is heard equally, the All Parish Gathering on September 18th will now be held entirely online. The morning will include small group breakout sessions with opportunities for all to listen and share. Please plan to attend and share your  thoughts about the future of St. Paul's.  Advance sign up will be very helpful as the vestry  plans the meeting. If you have not already done so,  please let them know you are coming by emailing the parish office here

Participate in Bishop Transition Listening Sessions
Ian Douglas, the current diocesan bishop, is retiring next year. During September, the Bishop Transition Committee is holding listening sessions around the diocese to learn what matters most as preparations are made to elect the next bishop of Connecticut.  Use this link to learn more and sign up for a listening session (Norwalk is in the Southwest Region, but all sessions are open, so you may attend the one most convenient for you). Sign up today to make sure St. Paul’s voice is heard at these sessions. For ongoing information use this link to sign up to receive the Bishop Transition newsletter. Questions? Reach out to Bob Giolitto for more information. 

O God, Bless and grant the Bishop Transition Committee the gifts of wisdom, humility, and empathy as they discern your will for a new shepherd, inspirational leader, and willing advocate as we further your work in the Episcopal Church in Connecticut.
