Join Us for Homecoming Weekend October 14-16, 2022

Dear Friends and Family:

We invite you to join us for a Homecoming Weekend with St. Paul’s by-the-Sea church; a time to welcome back all our church members who have not been with us due to the summer chaos or COVID, and those who have been away for much longer.

St. Paul’s by-the-Sea has a rich history. Our church building and our members have stood strong while Ocean City grew up around us. We have weathered many storms. We have welcomed many locals and visitors. We have supported and participated in the life of this community.

We want to take time to reflect on the blessings of the past and look forward to the future with anticipation for what we can do as a parish family with God’s help. It’s time for those who have a history with our church family to “come home” and join us to celebrate a reconnection with our congregation.

Please join us for an evening of fellowship on Friday, October 14 , from 5-7pm, for our Parish Gathering at Windmill Creek Winery. Space is limited for this event, so please call the church office (410-289-3453) to let us know you will be attending. Then on October 16 th at 10 am we be celebrating Heritage Sunday with special Holy Eucharist service and reception following in Dewees Hall.

We are sending out this invitation to anyone and everyone who may have worshipped with us in the past, and of course the present. While we realize some people may have moved on to other churches, moved out of the area, or simply stopped going to church, we would love to have you return to be with us! Sincerely,

Tom Shuster, Senior Warden and the Vestry
