So, you’re curious. Maybe you have driven by and wondered what's inside that big, beautiful stone building. Maybe you are looking for a place to worship. Maybe you want your child to be raised in a church community. Maybe you are tired of all the negativity, fear and hate in the world. Maybe you have a heart for social justice. Maybe you've been hurt by churches before. Maybe you think Christians are hypocritical. Maybe.....
Just maybe one of these might sound familiar; if so, know that St. Paul's is a place for EVERYONE. That's our mission statement; it's that simple. St. Paul's is a place for everyone, a ministry for everyone. Whether you are black, white, brown, gay, straight, young, old, come from a faith background or have no faith at all; there is a place for you here. For everyone; because we believe God loves everyone and we have come to realize that living in community is more life giving than living in isolation.
Poke around these pages. Read a sermon. Email the priest and ask for a cup of coffee sometime. And come to church to give us a try. Decide for yourself.
Our mission statement is simple; A place for everyone, a ministry for everyone. It gets at the core of who we are; a church family that includes EVERYONE!
Our History: The original St. Paul's was a wooden structure on Lake Avenue that opened in 1869. The present St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is one of four beautiful buildings in Duluth designed by the prominent New York City Architectural firm.. Construction began in April of 1912 and the first service held in it in May of 1913. It is patterned on a smaller scale after Canterbury Cathedral in England.
St. Paul's is proud of it's long history of serving the community in many ways, The women of St. Paul's saw a need for a hospital in the wake of a typhoid outbreak and founded St. Luke's Hospital in 1881; what began as a room above a blacksmith's shop is now a regional heath care system.
The church family continues to reach out to those in need and carry on the work of those who came before us.
