At its best, church is like a loving family, and going to church should feel like going home. That’s why times of fellowship and opportunities to foster friendships are so important—and so we make them happen as often as we can!

Fellowship happens every week on Sunday mornings after mass, with coffee and treats as an added draw. It’s one of the easiest ways to get to know one another. You can take the temperature of a church by the liveliness of children during coffee hour. And it’s safe to say: our kids are having a pretty good time.

Of course, fellowship happens beyond Sunday mornings too: by gatherings in one another’s homes; at evening meals in the parish hall; and at all-parish social events, like the annual parish picnic. Those are just a few of the ways we do life together at St. Paul’s.

When we gather together, it feels like home. And in this home, all are welcome.

Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” (Romans 15:7)
