An Invitation to the Episcopal Church!!
It is not too late to join us! We began on last Sunday, Please feel free to get some food and bring to class. In preparing for this class, I did not even finish reading the Preface and Introduction of the book to see the GEM that this book is for those who would like to know more about the Episcopal Church, and then decided if they do indeed want to join as a member of St. Paul’s, AND it is an excellent REFRESHER resource for those who have either been “cradle Episcopalians” or those who joined later on. Therefore, I HIGHLY recommend you sign up for the class TODAY. The Sign up sheets are in the entrance to the church

Sunday, Oct 6th – Service of St. Francis/Blessing of Pets
Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church is offering two opportunities to have your pet blessed in the coming week. Visitors to First Friday downtown Canton will find our table near the Arcadia Grill. And on Sunday, animals are invited to accompany their families to our regular service beginning at 10:30 a.m. Saint Paul’s is it 425 Cleveland Ave. SW. in Canton and all are welcome.  

Got potatoes?
Once again, St. Paul's is playing a big role in Thanksgiving Baskets Downtown, with two signup days here on Oct. 12 (this coming Saturday) and Oct. 19. If you'd like to volunteer for those or any other opportunities to sort, shift, move and deliver, please go to  and sign up.  Also, St. Paul's is collecting boxes and bags of mashed potatoes. Please leave them in the box in the Narthex, or contribute with a check made out to Thanksgiving Baskets Downtown. Thanks, as always, for your support of a truly ecumenical (and energizing) effort that serves some 1,200 families in Stark County.
A concert featuring Erin Byrne, soprano, and Joanne Fox, dulcimer, was performed on Wednesday, followed by Compline.
