There Are No Rules For This: A Conversation with novelist JJ Elliott

St. Paul’s evening with the author is fast approaching, so obtain your copy of JJ’s book, There Are No Rules For This, today and read it prior to our discussion of this story of a group of friends who are grieving the suicide of one in their circle.

From our Choir School Parents:
“St. Paul's Choir School is a very special place where kids can come to find their voices, learn about music and have fun.”
“The director has a gift for meeting kids where they are at musically, and then gently guiding them towards their full potential.”
“I'm so thrilled that they have the chance to receive such high-caliber musical training at this young age.”
“Having our younger kids observe the older kids as they advance and take on more responsibilities is inspiring.”
“It's rare to find musical training at this level for young children.”

Contact Director of Music, Dr. Susan Jane Matthews, at A parent orientation meeting will be held on August 29, and rehearsals resume after Labor Day. Membership at St. Paul’s is not required. Need-based tuition scholarships are available.

80th General Convention of the Episcopal Church 

General Convention typically convenes every three years as a hub for legislative activity, networking and fellowship. The 80th General Convention was postponed by one year, creating a four-year period since the last meeting, held in Austin, Texas, in 2018. As the church’s primary, bicameral governing body, it splits its authority between the House of Bishops and House of Deputies, with deputations from all 112 of the church’s dioceses and mission areas.

Congratulations to St. Paul’s Tongan Community Members
in Seeking Ordination

St. Paul’s Tongan Community has been on a journey over the last several years to “raise up” its own members to pursue ordination as clergy members or deacons for its community. Last month, three members of the Tongan congregation submitted their papers for what’s called “nomination.” They are Joshua Guttenbeil, Viliami Mila, and Hepeti Fifita.


The Vestry endorsed their nominations in a letter to the Bishop citing the importance of having Tongan clergy to fulfill the legacy of the Rev. Sosaia Fineanganofo who led the congregation for so many years and to be a model of inclusion of all peoples in the Episcopal Church with services offered in the primary language of the congregation. They are being supported on this journey which will include coursework, meetings, and internal discernment not only by the Tongan Congregation but also by St. Paul’s Discernment Committee comprised of Fusi Pahulu, Alexandra Subramanian and Michele Bosschart.


Their journey is expected to take 2-3 years. The Vestry, the Tongan Congregation and the Local Discernment Committee are very grateful to the leadership, support and special insight that the Rev. Beth Foote, our Transition Rector, has provided to the candidates. We are fortunate that Beth serves on the Diocesan Committee that oversees the consideration of those seeking ordination and the training provided them.

ChurchNext offers Free Course on
Systemic Racism and the Episcopal Church

For the next three months, ChurchNext, an offering of Forward Movement, will provide a new online curriculum, “Becoming Beloved Community: Understanding Systemic Racism.” The course is available for individuals at no charge. You may register for the course any time at 

Designed for study over a period of six weeks, the curriculum explores how systemic racism has been integrated into U.S. culture from the very beginning, as well as the Episcopal Church’s history of active participation in systemic racism. The curriculum offers guidance on learning from this history and building toward what the Episcopal Church’s Presiding Bishop Michael Curry describes as “the Beloved Community of God.”
