Pastoral Resources for the Holidays
- As always, I or any of the St. Paul's clergy are available at your request. Please click here to make an appointment with clergy or for contact information for Father Omar, Father Tim Sean, Deacon Marilyn or Deacon Gerald;
- Our pastoral care line is staffed around the clock. Please call or text 405-445-1614;
- Jani Hill, our Pastoral Care Coordinator, and the entire Pastoral Care Team are at your service. This wonderful group of people make visits, serve as Lay Eucharistic Visitors (home communion), deliver flowers and pray without ceasing. Our own Erin Ripka has also volunteered to make pastoral care visits to share her gift of violin music to those in need. Please contact Jani at [email protected] or call the front desk at 405-235-3436 during office hours (M-Th, 9am-4pm);
- If you or someone you care about needs public or private St. Paul's prayers, please click here to add a name to the prayer list;
- If you would like to spend time at either of our columbariums, walking the labyrinth, or simply sitting quietly in the Cathedral, the Chapel or the garden, St. Paul's is open Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 4 pm, as well as Sunday mornings and evenings, and we can make arrangements for access at other times upon request.
We have a special service coming up that I would like to draw your attention to as well, Blue Christmas Compline, on Thursday, December 22. This Sunday (November 20), we will also celebrate Night Mass at 5 pm, which is also conducive to reflection. Also, on the first and third Tuesdays of each month (December 6 and 20), we will have Good Night Yoga in Dean Willey Hall, with Mary Reynolds and the Taize Choir providing music and Anne Roberts providing guidance for yoga or meditation.
It is my hope and prayer that St. Paul's can be a place of respite for you at this time, whether that be through a community event, individualized pastoral care or solitude.
Almighty God, we entrust all who are dear to us to thy never-failing care and love, for this life and the life to come, knowing that thou art doing for them better things than we can desire or pray for; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (BCP, p. 831)
