Search Committee for New Dean
The Vestry is looking to form the search committee for a new dean! The search committee will be made up of 2 Vestry members and several congregants. It will be time-intensive, but it is a very rewarding process. We would like to have the search committee formed as soon as possible because we hope to publish the position before the end of the year and have a new dean in place before the end of 2022! If possible, we hope to appoint the search committee at our next vestry meeting on September 21. The search committee will set its own schedule, and meetings can be in-person, online, or a hybrid, at the committees discretion. If you are interested, or you would like to recommend someone else in the congregation, please email the senior warden, Peter Snodgrass, at a.peter.snodgrass@gmail.com

Social Justice Action Team Begins Fall Study Program, Sunday, Sept. 19th
It’s September! Bringing thoughts of back-to-school activities. Students (and parents) are happy to be returning to a more normal school year after a long hiatus. For many of us, our interest in education is important. A good public school system is the cornerstone of our vision for the future of our community. However, what do we know about how successful our schools
are? How are they administered? Are the needs of all students provided? It turns out these are rather complicated questions with social justice implications. In various programs and discussions throughout the fall, we’ll tackle questions that both reflect
and create unfairness and exclusions, beginning this Sunday! We invite everyone to join us in this pursuit, especially those with current or past involvement in our local schools - teachers, students, parents, and taxpayers. Please add your voice! We’d like to hear from all of you! Please join us in person or on Zoom. (Clip art: Twinkl)
Registration for 10:15 am Worship on September 19th
The deadline to sign up is September 17th at 9:00 am. 
St. Paul’s is pleased to resume in-person worship inside our sacred space where generations of the faithful have gathered in the context of community to be formed by God’s Word and the sacraments! It will be a joy to welcome everyone back. For those unable to physically be present, the service will be live streamed – please go to SPCBuffalo.org for more information. If you'd like to register by phone, please call the Cathedral office at 855-0900 or click on the link below.

Formation for Children - SPC Kids!
During our Sunday 10:15 service, all children pre-K-6th grade can participate in a forty-five minute SPCKids gathering including fellowship, prayer, an interactive lesson and an activity. Parents, please bring your kids, who would like to participate, to the Walker Room at 10:00 am before the service. The kids will then join the service for communion. Most Sundays there will also be a children’s sermon after communion. There is also staff available for babies and toddlers to play in our nursery space. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Lily Lane (lily@spcbuffalo.org) or (716) 860-1569.

With updates to the Partnership Dioceses' precautionary measures in response
to COVID-19, our kids program will require kids 2 years and older to wear a mask and
social distancing will be used as much as possible with more individualized activity for
the kids.
