Early on Sundays, St. Paul's gathers for a simple Eucharistic Liturgy with no music. This service runs about 35 minutes long.
10:00 a.m. In-person & Live-Streamed Service:
Join with the community of St. Paul's Natick as we gather later each Sunday morning for a Eucharistic Liturgy with our choir and music minister. This service runs a little over an hour long and is most often the Rite 2 service from the Book of Common Prayer.
Our in-person service is available to attend virtually as a Zoom webinar and is also live-streamed to both our YouTube and Facebook pages so that you have a choice of platforms!
We also suggest that if you have been a Covid-19 close contact, have any cold symptoms, or have been traveling during the week leading up to a Sunday morning, you would consider masking for the sake of others.
We encourage each parishioner and visitor to St. Paul’s to do what feels right to them, for their own health and for the health of others around them.
We recognize many people are comfortable without a mask, and others prefer or need to continue to wear a mask, and we support and welcome people to make their own choices on wearing a mask right now.

You’ll find kindred spirits here and people who think differently and still love you. We’re here for your spiritual shelter to help you on your journey. There is forgiveness here. And Grace. And Joy. And Love. And God.
You are welcome here. Come as you are.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is a dynamic and growing community located in Natick, a western suburb of Boston (also known as Metrowest).

Baptism. Communion. Marriage. Funerals. At these special times, we celebrate them as sacraments. According to the Book of Common Prayer, sacraments are "outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as sure and certain means by which we receive that grace." We look forward to sharing with you in these special sacramental moments.Learn More
Our clergy and staff love and serve the people of our parish and our community. They help all to Welcome in Love, Worship with Joy, Grow in Faith, Work for Justice, Seek and Serve Christ in All Persons.
The vestry is comprised of nine members, three of whom are elected every three years to three-year terms. Additionally, there is a junior and senior warden, a treasurer and assistant treasurer, and a clerk. Vestry members provide leadership and guidance for all of our ministries.
We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world. We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.
We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.Learn More

Stewardship is about more than money. It’s about giving our time, talent and treasure to take care of the world that God has created for us. As God’s people we are stewards of creation. St. Paul’s receives no financial support from the Diocese. Our rector, staff and programming would not be possible without contributions from you.
Consider Stewardship as giving back to God that which God has already given to us.
Our campaign theme is More than Enough, and it comes from the end of Luke’s version of the feeding of the five-thousand. Responding to Jesus’ call, the gathered crowd turns their pockets inside out, shakes out their blankets, rummages through their parcels to find enough to take care of the needs of the community. And what do they realize? That by the miracle of faith and the action on Love, there was more than enough, an abundance of leftovers!
Every gift of wealth, works and wisdom goes toward our ministry and mission, and your gift is essential to us.Find out more about our 2023 Stewardship campaign
