Saint Paul’s is an historic parish, formed more than 150 years ago.  We are proud of our roots and heritage; we are also excited about who we are now and who we are becoming.  We are focused on being instruments of God’s compassion and reconciliation in the world.  The Book of Common Prayer describes that mission of the Church in this way: “The mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ… The Church pursues its mission as it prays and worships, proclaims the Gospel, and promotes justice, peace, and love… The Church carries out its mission through the ministry of all its members.” BCP 1979 p. 855

Our worship and Christian education, our ministry in the larger community and our fellowship events all help us to be equipped for the ministry God calls us to as our mission.  We draw on the strength and encouragement we together find in God to be able to offer loving and compassionate care for those outside our doors. Inviting new people into our parish family to share our hopes and their dreams is a pleasure and a delight.

You have honored us with your visit to our website. You will find that you are always welcome at Saint Paul’s.  If you are looking for a church home we would encourage you to join us for worship.

God’s peace be with you,

Fr. Richard

Welcome: Rev. Kate Wilson

In August the Rev. Kate Wilson will arrive in Evansville from the diocese of El Camino Real in California for a year-long chaplaincy residency at Deaconess Hospital.  It is being arranged through Bishop Waynick to have Rev. Kate attached to St. Paul’s alter while she is here.  St. Paul’s will be her spiritual, liturgical, and ministry home-away-from-home.  We hope all will welcome her when she arrives.

Eastside Dinner Cub

Indeed, St. Paul’s Eastside Dinner Club followed the “yellow brick road” to a wonderful evening.  The first stop along the way was at the Keeney’s in South Broadview Estates, Newburgh for a delicious pork loin dinner with a wonderful variety of vegetables, salads and deserts.  Then the road led to the Newburgh First Christian Church, who hosted the staging of “The Wizard of Oz.”  Warrick’s Castle High School Auditorium is under construction, so for the second consecutive year First Christian has hosted the annual summer musical.  All were treated to a well staged, a well performed and a well produced show.  We were especially proud that Ben Boyer (St. Paul’s Choirmaster) was the show’s Vocal Director.  Also, we were very proud to have Amanda Jones and  Chris Jones in the orchestra.  The Eastside Dinner Club gathers monthly.  Please watch for the announcement of their next event.

Order of St. Andrew Outing

Dor Doty & Evan Otter

Cool, refreshing tall drinks and tall stories were shared by the men of the Order of St. Andrew as they gathered at Turoni’s on Monday, June 21st to share pizza and beverages.  After everyone was sufficiently fed, it was off to Bosse field for the Otters’ game.  Chris Peters, the Otters’ starting pitcher, did well, but he was followed by a bullpen disaster as the Grizzlies defeated the Otters 8 – 2.  Great plays were seen during the game —  diving catches by both outfielders and infielders for both teams, great double plays, and a home run to right field  A few celebrities were in the crowd. Dor Doty had his picture taken with Evan.  To a person, the men tell how they enjoyed themselves and hope more will join them at future events.  Contact Fred Mulfnger for more information (fred.mulfinger@gmail.com).
