Welcome in Love

In this place, there is room for your questions, your stories, your laughter, your doubt, your grief, and your most authentic self.
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).

What is the Episcopal Church?
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.Read More »

Vestry & Delegates
In the Episcopal Church, and thus at St. Paul’s, we depend on the leadership of our laity (non-ordained folks) in all aspects of our life together. The vestry is the governing body of our church and operates much like a board of a non-profit organization, but with more prayer! The vestry is chaired by two “Wardens” and comprised of nine members, three of whom are elected every three years to three-year terms. Additionally, there is a treasurer and assistant treasurer, and a clerk. Vestry members provide leadership and guidance for all of our ministries.Meet Our Vestry »

All are welcome to join us in the various ministries of the …Read More »
