Welcome to St. Pauls Episcopal Church

St Paul's Episcopal Church is a warm and loving community of approximately 800 baptized members. Located on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay, it is situated in one of the most scenic and fastest growing counties in Alabama. In this place we try to follow the teachings and examples of Jesus Christ, not so much by speculating "What would Jesus do?," but rather attempting to emulate what Jesus did do. This theology for ministry is captured in our Mission Statement: "We worship together as we seek God, serve God, and share God with love and acceptance for all." You are cordially invited to join us in worship. It is my prayer that you will find your time with us a blessing.

God bless you, Thack Dyson, Rector

Ecumenical Ministries Chili for Charity
It is time again to mark your calendars for the 17th Annual Chili for Charity event for Ecumenical Ministries Inc. This year's cook-off will again be held at Oak Hollow Farm in Fairhope on, Saturday, February 25, 2017.
The fabulous fun-filled festival has something for everyone.  Besides being able to sample some of the best chili that Baldwin County has to offer, music lovers can enjoy  the pleasing tunes by local favorite, Blind Dog Mike and the Howlers and a performance by the Fairhope High School Encore Group.  Add a bake sale with out-of-this- world homemade baked goods, a hay ride, inflatables for the kids, balloon artistry by  Dr. Gee, antique tractors on display, and a mechanical bull ride for all ages.  It's the perfect recipe for a great afternoon of family fun that supports EMI's many worthwhile service programs.
 
This cook-off is still one of the best bargains around.  Adult admission is $12.50 in advance,  or $15 at the gate. Children 12 and under are free.  We also have handmade chili bowls made exclusively for the event by local potters, organized through The Kiln in Fairhope, just $20.00 each.

St. Paul's has a team participating in the chili cook-off.   Join them at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 25th.

The University of Virginia Glee Club 
The University of Virginia Glee Club will be making its first-ever formal appearance in Mobile as part of its 2017 Spring Tour of Southern States.  The performance will be on Monday, March 6, 2017, at 7:00 pm at Trinity Episcopal Church at 1900 Dauphin Street in Midtown Mobile. Parking is available adjacent to the church. The concert is free and open to the public.  The UVA Mobile Alumni Club is delighted to sponsor this event with the help of Trinity Church, whose historic building has recently been totally restored and renovated after the Christmas Day  tornado of 2012.
Founded in 1871, the Virginia Glee Club is the oldest musical organization at the University of Virginia. The Club's members, primarily undergraduate students, come from every school and college within the University. Members consider the group a "fraternity of talent," committed to performing at a professional level, promoting fellowship, and preserving longstanding tradition. Throughout its history, the Virginia Glee Club has been consistently recognized as a leader among American men's choruses, performing a variety of sacred and secular music in the classical tradition.
