The Mission of Saint Paul’s Parish is to faithfully serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in all people. We strive to live out our mission by seeking and serving Him in all who come to this parish and all who are members of our wider community.
Saint Paul’s is a part of the world-wide Anglican Communion and is affiliated with the Episcopal Church in the United States of America. Our Diocese is the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania, and our Bishop is the The Rt. Rev. Robert R. Gepert. St. Paul’s is in the Northern Tier Convocation of the Diocese.
What’s St. Paul’s like? As the parish priest here, I appreciate the eclecticism of our parish. This is reflected in our activities and opportunities for worship. Diversity is a key description for what happens at St. Paul’s: Members come from all walks of life and worship in a variety of ways.
Our Mission Focus, we have drawn upon the passage found in Ephesians 5:19: “Live like intelligent and not like senseless people. This may be a wicked age, but your lives should redeem it. Do not be thoughtless but recognize what is the will of the Lord. Be filled with the Spirit, sing the words and tunes of the psalms and hymns when you are together, and go on singing and chanting to the Lord in your hearts, so that always and everywhere you are giving thanks to God who is our Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
We are blessed to have St. Paul’s as our Spiritual Home, and you are always welcome at St. Paul’s.
The Rev. Canon Gregory P. Hinton, Rector
