St. Paul's is a family-friendly, all-in-English parish of the Orthodox Church in America, Diocese of the Midwest. We welcome visitors and inquirers, and look forward to the chance to introduce ourselves to you!
Both Church School and the Sunday Afternoon Discussion are on summer break. The new Church School year will begin on August 20. Master sign-up lists are currently on the classroom doors to register your children for next year. Several exciting things for families are happening over the summer:
- St. Paul Park Days: Every Thursday morning from 9:00 to noon, at a different park throughout the Dayton area. Email Erin Caldwell, firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
- Our parish playground: The funding drive was a great success and the playground will be installed on the parish grounds in September! Thanks to all who contributed!
- Annual Parish Picnic/Church School Kick-off Party: After Liturgy on August 27. Mark your calendars now!

O glorious Apostle Paul,
who can describe your bondage and tribulations in the cities?
You kept vigil in hunger and thirst; cold, naked and weary;
you fled Damascus for your life, let down in a basket through the wall.
Your back was torn by rods,
you were stoned, you were kept a prisoner.
You were shipwrecked, cast adrift in the open sea.
Truly you are a spectacle for Angels and for men.
You endured all these things for Jesus Christ, Who strengthened you,
that you might win the whole world for Him.
We entreat you, as we faithfully keep your memory:
"Pray unceasingly that our souls may be saved!"
from the Aposticha verses for the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, June 29
