At St. Paul's we're proud of the fact that we're getting better and better all the time at our mission: "Welcoming and serving all in Christ's Name."

As a result, there is no such thing as your "average" St. Paul's parishioner. Some of us have been worshiping at St. Paul's for over 60 years. More and more of us are thirtysomethings and under. We come from diverse cultures; we’re carnivores, locavores, vegans, blue-collar, white-collar, straight, gay and lesbian, married, single, left, right, and center – all supporting each other in our quest to know and love God, our neighbors, and ourselves better.

Many persons alienated by the faith traditions in which they were raised have found St. Paul's a place where they are affirmed as full members of the Body of Christ. This has been especially true for the growing LGBTQ+ community at St. Paul's. In addition, those who seek to worship in the Catholic tradition – and who find The Episcopal Church's commitment to inclusivity liberating and its respect for critical thinking refreshing – increasingly seek out St. Paul's.

It's easy to see, then, why we say at St. Paul's, "It takes all kinds!"
Welcome to Saint Paul’s!
If you’re new to Saint Paul’s or Malden, so am I! I hope you will enjoy exploring our website and consider joining us in person. We are trying some new ways of being church at Saint Paul’s as we seek to honor and elevate the voices and ministries of all God’s people. Sometimes you’ll find me leading worship, other times members of the congregation, and other times guests who have special gifts and perspectives to offer. None of us has full access to God’s truth, but together we learn and laugh as we seek to serve God and neighbor faithfully.
We bring our full selves to church. I’m an Episcopal priest. I’m also a mother, spouse, neighbor, and a child of God who cares deeply about our shared earth and seeks to live simply amidst the many distractions of our modern world. You bring who you are – I look forward to discovering who that is, and who we will all become together in this community of Saint Paul’s in the City of Malden. Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.
