The Epistle is the monthly newsletter of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.  Published for the members of the parish, the intent is to provide information on the ministries, events, and important activities of the parish.  It is distributed widely by email, and on a limited basis by US mail to those who do not have access to the internet.  Printed copies are available on request, or can be picked up in the lobby of the church.  Please let Father Don Davidson, or the Senior Warden, Barbara Mannor, know if you have any comments or suggestions for inclusion in the Epistle.
