Welcome to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Exton, a community of faith that has served God’s mission in Jesus Christ for over 185 years. We are a worshipping family with open doors and open arms. Through worship, prayer, giving and forgiving, learning, sharing and serving, we proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.
NATIONAL WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA DAY
Wreaths Across America is an organization that provides wreaths to place at veterans’ graves. The wreaths are a symbol of honor, respect and victory for those who served their country. St. Paul’s has approximately 50 graves of veterans laid to rest in our cemetery. On the morning of Saturday, December 15th, the Brandywine Squadron, Delaware Wing of the Civil Air Patrol will once again conduct a short ceremony and place a wreath on each one of the graves here. We are taking donations to cover the cost of the 50 wreaths, which are $15 each, and handmade of balsam fir with a red bow. If you’d like to donate or sponsor a wreath for one of the veteran’s graves in our cemetery, please clearly mark your gift and place it in the alms basins or send it to the Church Office. Donations must be received at the church by Dec. 1st.
SPECIAL HOLIDAY DINER
The Bridge Academy and Community Center (thebridgeacademy.org) is working alongside partner churches and organizations to host a traditional, family-style dinner for 50 Coatesville-area families on Saturday, December 15th. If you would like to volunteer, provide a monetary donation to offset expenses, or donate Walmart gift cards as Christmas presents for the guests, please contact Joe and Deedee McPeak (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
