As part of our common effort to keep everyone in our communities safe and healthy, all public services and events at St. Paul’s will be suspended until further notice.
Although there will not be large public gatherings for prayer, our church building will remain open as a resource to the community unless we are otherwise directed by local health officials. We do not make this decision lightly, but, as people of faith we are called to protect and support one another, particularly the most vulnerable among us.
On Sunday mornings we will be joining together for Morning Prayer beginning at 9:45 AM via Zoom, an easy-to-use program which allows you to participate by computer, handheld device (smartphone or tablet), or ordinary telephone.
To join the service on your computer or smartphone, just click on this link: https://zoom.us/j/8228158956
If you have not used Zoom before, you will be prompted to download a simple, trustworthy application to access the service. After you do so, you will be asked to give permission to use your device’s camera and microphone. We hope you will do so, as we want to see and talk to each other! However, one important point of video conference etiquette: Please mute your microphone at all times, unless you are speaking!This will help minimize background noise for all worshippers.
To join the service by telephone, call 1-646-558-8656.
When prompted enter our meeting ID:822 815 8956, followed by the # sign.
We won’t be able to see you, but you’ll be able to hear and speak.
If you have any problems signing on to the call, please feel free to call Matt Fillio at 413-822-3759. He will be standing by ready to help!
St. Paul’s Church will continue to be open at all times for individual prayer and meditation. You will find special prayers for this time available on the back table.
Usual Fall-Spring Worship Schedule
Holy Eucharist with Sermon, a simple “Rite I” service
Holy Eucharist with Sermon and Music — a “Rite II” service.
Also at 10:00 A.M. – Godly Play
During the school year, all children are invited to come to the second floor of our Parish House for Godly Play, Montessori-based method of experiencing the mystery of God allows children to enter into parables, silence, sacred stories and sacred liturgy in order to discover God, themselves, one another and the world around us.
Children will enjoy a story and creative response time, followed by a feast and prayers. On most Sundays they will remain in Godly Play throughout the service time, but will join us for communion at least once a month. (We are still experimenting with the best schedule; your input is appreciated!)
Questions? Speak to our children’s and youth ministry coordinator Anne Skakel (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Father Sam.
A time of hospitality and fellowship for all follows the 10:00 service.
Please Note: It is our usual custom to have one service only when there is a fifth Sunday of the month. As a reminder, these occasions will be highlighted on the home page of this website.
The church is open daily. You are always welcome.
