Below are a few notable event descriptions. Please note that during this time of transition, as we search for a new priest, many of these events are not taking place.

Blessing of the Animals
On the Sunday nearest St. Francis’ Day in October we welcome all pets to either of our Sunday morning services (8 and 10:00am) where they will receive a blessing… and maybe a treat at coffee hour!

Advent Quiet Day
A time of prayer and reflection during this season of anticipation and preparation that often gets overlooked in the rush to Christmas.

N.O.E.L. Dinner
On Christmas day, the church fellowship hall bustles with activity for the annual “Nothing Other than Eating and Loving” Dinner. Volunteers serve over 1000 home-cooked Christmas dinners (about 400 guests gather in the hall and 600 meals are delivered to homes and to working EMTs, Firefighters and Police Officers) and distribute winter clothes and toys for kids. This festive holiday tradition is attended, and supported by, people from across Worcester County and beyond.

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
A traditional dinner of pancakes and sausage is served parishioners and the community on the evening before the beginning of Lent. Most recently, we have joined forces with Atlantic Methodist Church to present this event. 

Lenten Quiet Day
A time of prayer and reflection to prepare to enter the season of Lent along with a scrumptious lunch and a chance to walk our labyrinth.

Holy Week
We mark this most sacred time of the year with the ‘Three Parish Pilgrimage’ with our friends from St. Paul’s Berlin and Church of the Holy Spirit in north Ocean City on Wednesday, and the Maundy Thursday and Good Friday liturgies.

Ocean Cluster Picnic
This fun gathering of parishioners from St. Paul’s by-the-Sea, St. Paul’s Berlin and Church of the Holy Spirit, Ocean City is usually held on a Sunday afternoon in August. It begins with a prayer service and then a pot luck supper.

Fundraising Dinners
Themed dinners held to support for a specific need of the church. Our most notably has been the Authentic Italian Dinner.

Parish Fellowship Dinner
Dinners held throughout the year in both DeWees Hall at out Third Street Campus and MacMullin Hall at our West Campus, for the sole purpose of fellowship.

Speakers Series
The parish invites speakers to talk on varied topics of interest to the parish and community.
