Christian Formation at St. Paul's

 Almighty God, the fountain of all wisdom: Enlighten by your
Holy Spirit those who teach and those who learn, that,
rejoicing in the knowledge of your truth, they may worship
you and serve you from generation to generation; through
Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the
Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
.(BCP p.261)

Being formed in the way of Jesus is forever an on-going process at St. Paul's that provides a multi-level Christian experience for everyone to engage in unique ways. There are learning opportunities for children, teens, and adults on Sunday mornings as well throughout the week.  There are also seasonal events, lectures and series at All Saint's Day, Advent and Lent, for example.  Scholarships for lay theological education are also available for parishioners through the generosity of the Thorpe Scholarship Fund.
