Living Faith in Action

  Posted on   by   No comments

During her sermon this past Sunday, the Reverend Tracy Russell-Johnson urged us to “live our lives in faith in action.” But what does that look like? One way is exploring opportunities to serve within the parish of St. Paul’s. Here are two ways from the Justice Ministry to get more deeply involved:

The St Paul ‘s Justice Ministry is made up of several groups which tackle various social and justice issues. They vary from Sacred Ground Circles which aim at educating our community through this “sensitive, prayerful resource that creates space for difficult but respectful and transformative dialogue on race and racism,” to the St. Paul’s History Project which looks at our parish history and our complicity in slavery, to our activism in teaching immigrant children and giving marginalized communities a safe space to do their laundry. We have also begun to have newer focus on creation care and the environment. To do the work that God has called us to do we need more volunteers. There is a lot to be done and we are looking for your help. If you feel called to serve in any of these areas place call the parish office or email Gail Bindley-Taylor at or Father Paul Carling at

As we close out Black History Month, St Paul’s Justice Ministry is looking forward to its Juneteenth celebration at St. Paul’s. Put the date of Sunday June 16th on your calendar. Juneteenth is becoming a major celebration at St. Paul’s, and the Justice Ministry needs everyone’s help to make it a success. A planning team is forming now and would love your help with planning, organizing or (and) hospitality. Please email Gail Bindley-Taylor at or Father Carling at or give a call to the parish office 203 847 2806 to help.
