Bishop installs fifth rector of St. Paul's

Wardens Dick Breithaupt and Don Anderson present the keys to the chuch to our new rector with the words, "Receive these keys, and let the doors of this place be open to all people" (top). The Rev. Dr. Thomas A. Thoeni kneels in the midst of his parish, praying to God to "be always with me in carrying out the duties of my ministry..." as Bishop Dabney Smith observes.

Presiding bishop celebrates diocese

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry spoke and preached at the 2018 annual convention of our diocese. In addition to our delegates, pictured above, a busload of St. Paul's folks got to hear the bishop, best known for his sermon at the royal wedding and for branding our church as "the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement." Click below to see a recording of his talk and the worship service.

Supporters of these children

Episcopalians of the Naples Deanery have been supporting the children at a shelter in the Dominican Republic for the last 17 years. The Albergue el Buen Samaritano in San Francisco de Macoris, serves about a hundred children who would be on the street were it not for the shelter. The kids arrive for breakfast, learn their abcs and social skills and get lots of love that may otherwise be missing in their young lives. It is a ministry of love and affection, above all.

Supporters of Tumaini Fund

Dr. Susan Wilson, an English family physician, is full of energy and zeal for the Lord. She founded Tumaini (the word means "hope") Fund to put her faith to work in the AIDS-ravaged Kagera region of Northwest Tanzania. There she established an orphanage for thousands of children who lost their moms and dads to AIDS. In addition to monitary contributions, the ladies of our church, the ECW (Episcopal Church Women) have sewn numerous dresses for Dr. Wilson to distribute.

Parishioners Mike Moore and Roger Conant are directors for the fund in the United States.
