Robert Kennedy, and the Nicene Creed from Christine Kvam.

This Wednesday, April 6th, St. Paul’s Lenten Reflection series will conclude with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament followed by Stations of the Cross being led by Deacon Mark and Barb Robbins. Please join us in the worship space at 6:30 as we reflect upon the last moments of Christ’s life on earth.
