Welcome TO OUR WARM & LOVING cOMMUNITY  

 

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

The evening hosts serve the evening meals and eat and visit with the families.


It’s a very important and rewarding ministry that we participate in 4 times a year. We’d love to see some new faces this year!


It’s easy to sign up, just put the below link into your browser (or click the link) and pick your day and time. There are more detailed instructions on the signup form. 


If you have any questions please let me know.

Fish Fry! Sunday, February 19! Dine In or Carry Out!


Fellow Parishioners,


The Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast will resume its construction mission work in the Dominican Republic in March. This will be our first trip to the Dominican Republic since 2019. The 2020 mission was canceled due to the Covid Pandemic. Four St. Paul's members (Marty Ollinger, J.J. Walker, Coleman Wood, Howard Wilson) are among the 14 volunteers from throughout the diocese taking part in this mission. 


The Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic includes about 60 parishes and maintains a companion relationship with our diocese. Many of the parishes have schools. Our construction team has made 15 trips to the DR starting in 2007. Our primary task has been to build church furniture for their worship spaces. This has included altars, pews, chairs and baptismal fonts, but we have also built doors and bookshelves. Our team has its own tools and generators in storage at San Andres church in Santo Domingo that have been   sitting idle for four years. We are eager to return and get back to work there.  


We are holding a fish fry fundraiser for the mission in Malone Hall on Sunday, February 19 following the 10:30 service. This is the Sunday before Mardi Gras. We will serve fried catfish, baked beans, coleslaw, french fries, fried pickles and cake. Take out boxes will be available. Please come!

Thank you.

Howard Wilson
