Welcome to St. Paulís Episcopal Church, Beloit WI!
Join the people of St. Paul's as we seek to grow in our love of God and for each other. We celebrate the Eucharist on Sundays at 10 a.m., and on Wednesdays at 12:05 p.m. You can join the MP's for Morning Prayer on Tuesdays at 8 a.m. - the coffee pot is always on. And the church is now air-conditioned so we can worship in comfort year round.
Please join us in praying this prayer for St. Paul's everyday: Lord God, thank you for our parish family at St. Paul's.† Let your Holy Spirit work within our parish so we may do your will in this community and the world.† Through your Son Jesus Christ.† Amen.
St. Paul's is the oldest house of worship in Beloit, Wisconsin, having been built in 1850.† We are located in downtown Beloit, close to the Rock River, at 212 W. Grand Avenue.
We are a diverse parish, of young and old, "cradle" Episcopalians and converts, white, Asian, and African-American, blue collar and white collar,straight and gay - all are welcome.† What we share is a love of the Lord, and a conviction that we can grow in our faith and make a difference in the greater Beloit community.† "We follow Christ's teachings. We grow spiritually. We serve the needs of our neighbors. " (St. Paul's mission statement).
