Resurrection

The proclamation, "Christ is risen!" is at the heart of our faith - it was the experience of Jesus as the risen Lord that changed the lives of the disciples and propelled them to proclaim this good news. What does it mean to affirm that Jesus is risen? What does the Anglican tradition teach about the Resurrection? What does it mean to us and how does it change our lives? Join us at 9 am on these five Sundays in Easter to explore these questions and more.

Help Create Peaceful Communities

There have been many good reasons to march, walk, and run in greater Boston lately!  In just a few weeks, on Sunday, May 13, we can devote our walking energy to creating more peaceful communities.The 22nd Annual Mother's Day Walk for Peace is sponsored by the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute, an organization that offers support to the families of victims of violence in greater Boston.

You can support this important effort in two ways: join the walk or sponsor the St. Paul's walkers by visiting our team page:  https://lbdpeace.z2systems.com/stpaul 

The walk begins at 8:30 am in Town Field Park, in Dorchester, and ends at Boston City Hall (6.8 miles). You can also register to walk a shorter route that begins at 9:45 a.m. (estimated to join the walkers) at Madison Park High School in Roxbury (3 miles).

40P Flea Market: Future Fellows Fundraising Effort for Life Together

Dear members of the St. Paul's Community:
As many of you may know, Emily and I are part of a fellowship called Life Together that Eliza Marth was in last year. We would like to invite you to our collective future fellows fundraising effort for Life Together, the 40P Flea Market! Each year Life Together fellows and staff raise funds toward the goal of $600 for the organization. As an intentional community that bonded early and is still going strong, we wanted to work on something together which could both collectively showcase our gifts, talents, and hopes for this program. If you've already heard about Love Matters house parties, this is not that! This is designed to help the residents of 40P meet our future fellows fundraising goal.Our year in 40P has come with its challenges: drafty windows, leaking ceilings, Wifi that is ironically strongest in the prayer/meditation room; but it has also gifted us with a warm, tenacious, and hilarious family. Help us reach each of our future fellows fundraising goals: here's a link with more information on how to help.

Where?  40 Prescott Street, Brookline, MA 02446
When?   Saturday, April 14 from 12-5PM
Suggested Entry Donation:  $5-20
What to Expect?  Open mic poetry; snacks, the unveiling of the 40P zine, various donated
                            goods (kimchi, wardrobe castoffs, zines and poetry)
Where will my money go?  All of us at 40P (the profits from the individual purchases you make will go to that fellow's own fundraising goal).
What if I can't be there?  You can still donate to support our goal! If interested, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. You may also purchase a set of notecards that showcase photos of 40P, our lovely home. To view notecards and access the order form, please click here. We will ship them to you for $2/each or $10/set of 6.With love,
Emily, Jocelin, Lily, Melee, Mer C., and Mer W., aka Wholesome House aka 40Peeps
