Sundays at 9:00 am: Adult Formation
May 15th
Have you ever wondered about all those memorial plaques on the walls of St. Paul's? Wayne Mori, cathedral archivist, will present three informal talks entitled “Saint Paul’s Famous, Near-Famous, and Infamous,” with slides on those individuals and many more who, over the last 200 years, have been connected with St. Paul's Cathedral. These Sunday morning presentations will cover a wide variety of interesting people and events involving St. Paul's. Some of the topics will include Buffalo's early Episcopalian settlers, the burning of the village in 1813, a vestryman who served five years of hard labor, nineteenth century ritual controversies, a visiting faith healer, a former rector who fell from grace, and much more.

May 22nd - Exploring a Zero Waste Church
Bob Ludwig will lead a discussion on a Zero Waste Church. He recently went to Washington, D.C. where he visited St. Columba Episcopal Church because he had learned St. Columba’s had endorsed the goal of zero waste. Does that sound like a goal which promises more than it can deliver? Or is it an aspiration which may fit St. Paul's? Join us Sunday, May 22nd and help explore a possible future.
