Merry Christmas!
Important Information About Christmas Services
There will be no regular Epistle this week. The Epistle will return next week.

Christmas Services on Facebook

  • 7:45PM Christmas Eve - Musical introduction and the 8:00PM Christmas Eve Service broadcast. (The program starts at 7:45PM.)
  • 10:00PM "Premier" (first time re-broadcast of the 5:30PM service.) This will be shown to all for the first time at 10:00PM. Viewers can comment and interact in real time as they view it together. This broadcast will also include a musical introduction. This is a great way to approximate the feeling of a midnight mass safely at home. (The program starts on Facebook at 10:00PM and includes the musical introduction.)

  • 9:45AM Christmas Day - Morning Prayer with Christmas Music

To join any of the above services via Facebook, go to the church Facebook page at the appropriate time and look for the window showing that "St. Paul's Key West is now live". (Or at 10:00PM Christmas Eve look for the "Premier" button.) Click on the window. (You may need to refresh the page a few times if the "live" or "premier" window does not appear promptly at the appointed time.)

Sunday, December 27th

Don't forget that Sunday is the first Sunday of the Christmas season that lasts until the first Sunday of Epiphany.
