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. 

The Kindness Campaign

Because that's what kindness is. It's not doing something for someone because they can't, but because you can.

Mission Sunday
Boston's Walk For Hunger: Sunday, May 6

Mission Sundays are an opportunity for anyone and everyone at St Paul's to work together to address a need in the local community.  Save the date for our next Mission Sunday, which is the Walk for Hunger.  This year's Walk for Hunger is Project Bread's 50th anniversary of this walk, which raises money to help those who need food in Massachusetts.  For more information on the walk and Project Bread, click on this link.  Our fundraising goal this year is $3000 and our goal is to have a team of at least 10 people participating.  Participation can be one of the following: running the 5k at 7am, walking from the start line at 8am to church for the 10am service, or walking from the start line at 8am and ending at the finish line 20 miles later.  If you would like to participate, sign up on the website with team "St. Paul's Church, Brookline" .  For help, call or email Melissa Dulla at 650-743-6745 or  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Join the Mother's Day Walk for Peace: May 13

Who is walking in the Mother's Day Walk for Peace?  Bishop Alan Gates, for one.  Join Bishop Gates, civic leaders, and thousands of others who will be making a public witness against gun violence by walking together through the streets of Boston on Sunday, May 13.
This annual pledge walk is sponsored by the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute and is a fundraiser for the institute's work in support of families and more peaceful communities. 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 

St Paul's walkers will meet at 8:15 am and start off together at 8:30 am from Town Field Park (1520 Dorchester Avenue) in Dorchester, or join the walk at the second entry point at 9:45 am at Madison Park High School (75 Malcolm X Boulevard, Roxbury Crossing).  The walk will conclude with a peace rally at Boston City Hall Plaza at 11 am.
