As a parish, one of our strengths is education, and each year we launch a search for new teachers to help with Church School. We are recruiting parishioners of all stripes and ages to help with the education and nurture of the children of this parish. If you are interested in being a StoryTeller, Door Person or Middle School class teacher, please contact Manny: firstname.lastname@example.org .

Join us to celebrate the final concert of this Five Fridays season. Concerts are held by candlelight in the beautiful sanctuary of Saint Paul’s, typically in the intimate setting of the labyrinth at the west end of the church. Each concert is followed by a reception to greet the artists. Contributions from our generous sponsors help to defray costs, and together with ticket revenue, allow Saint Paul’s to pass on all net proceeds to Saint Paul’s outreach partners, Philadelphia Interfaith Hospitality Network and Face to Face Germantown. This is a unique opportunity to hear world-class music while supporting good work in our local community.
