Yoga Ministry at St. Paul's: Wednesday mornings at 7am
A Yoga practice at St. Paul's is in full swing! For the summer, classes will be at 7:00 am on Wednesday mornings in the Lichtenberger Room. 
This class is an opportunity to experience an embodied spiritual practice. Our very own Martha Curtis is an experienced Kripalu trained Hath yoga teacher and is offering this meditative yoga class for both beginning and more experienced yoga practitioners. Classes are free, and the focus will be on meditation and simple yoga postures. We have extra yoga mats and bolsters, so all you need to bring is your body, mind and spirit! All are invited to drop in for some early morning peacefulness. 
If you have questions, please email Martha Curtis at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Hope to see you there!
Summer Hymn Sing
During our summer Sunday services (now through Labor Day weekend), we have an ongoing "hymn-sing," where we sing hymns selected by members of the congregation. If you have a favorite hymn or two (or more), please let us know by submitting them in the hymn box located at the rear door of the church on the ushers table (there are slips of paper there for you to write on).We can't promise that all suggested hymns will make it into a service, but we will do our best to include all of your suggestions.
Staff Summer Leave and Vacation Time
As the program year winds down, several staff members will begin periods of time away from the parish.

Beginning July 1, Megan will be taking 8 weeks of time away as part of her compensation for covering Jeff's sabbatical last summer.  She will return in early September. 

Hazel will be out of the office this summer; she returns on August 30.

Eliza has completed her first year as our Life Together Fellow; she will return full time in September.

Jeff will be on vacation June 25 - July 2.
James will be on vacation July 8 - July 15.Beginning the week of July 3, our summer parish office hours will be Monday through Thursday, and closed on Fridays.

We wish everyone a restful time over the summer.
