St. Paul's has some new icons! This weekend saw the installation and blessing of a group of 24 smaller icons on the side walls of the sanctuary. The icons are primarily from Russia and Greece, of 18th and 19th century origin. We're happy to be their new permanent home. A gallery of photos Fr. Ted took of the icons can be found here.

Wednesday Morning 11 AM Discussion Group meets on March 22. We will be reading Henry Cloud's book Changes that Heal throughout Great Lent - it offers us a chance to look at ourselves and our relationships to see if there are changes that we need to make in order to find healing from God. New copies are available online for about $11, used copies are abundant and cheap and there is also a Kindle version ($1.99) The study is open to everyone - please join us as we seek out God's healing and make godly changes in our thinking and behavior.
