Convocation Sunday

Sunday, September 4 at 10 a.m.

St. Paul’s Memorial Church is pleased to continue our tradition of welcoming back the students, faculty, staff and alumni of the University of Virginia at our 10 am worship on September 4.

This year’s guest preacher will be Dr. Marcus Martin, UVa Vice-President and Chief Diversity Officer. Dr. Martin has served in a variety of roles in support of diversity and equity at the University of Virginia, including as assistant dean in the School of Medicine, and as assistant and associate vice president in the UVA Office of Diversity. In 2011, Dr. Martin was appointed Vice President and Chief Officer for Diversity and Equity at UVA.

Following the service we will have a reception, and a forum honoring this year’s UVA student recipients of the Skinner Scholarship for the advancement of ministry in the Episcopal Church.



Parish Potluck Picnic and Ministries Fair

Sunday, September 11

Parish Picnic – On Sunday, September 11, following the 10 a.m. service, we will gather in the meditation garden outside the church for food and fellowship. Fried chicken and drinks will be provided; other main dishes, sides, and desserts are potluck.  Please bring a dish to share and a blanket to sit on, and join us!

St. Paul’s Ministries Fair – The Ministries Fair will be on Sunday, September 11, coinciding with the Parish Picnic. This marks an opportunity for everyone to learn more about the different ministries at St. Paul's and to join where they feel so called.  Members of these ministries will be available to tell about what they do for St. Paul's and the community, as well as to answer questions. So, grab a plate of food, and come check out the many different ways that you can serve.


Summer Choir

Attention, lovers of singing—now is your chance!  The Chancel Choir warmly extends an invitation to everyone who enjoys singing in choirs to join us as you are able all summer long.  During the months of June through August, we sing a variety of relaxed repertoire, designed to be low-stress but beautiful and worshipful.  Whether you are visiting town, or too busy during the year to commit the rehearsal time, or former members of the choir—any and all are welcome to join us!

Rehearsals are Sundays at 9:00 a.m., when we prepare for that day’s 10:00 service and take a look at the next week’s anthem.  Grab a cup of coffee from the Parish Hall and come join a fun-loving and friendly bunch.  Questions? Feel free to email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or simply show up at 9 any given Sunday.  We will be delighted to have you join us, be it once or all summer!
