About St. Paul’s on-the-Hill
St. Paul’s on-the-Hill was founded in 1854 and is one of the oldest Episcopal Churches in Minnesota. To learn more about the Episcopal Church in Minnesota visit our diocesan website.
We have a proud history of excellence in worship rooted in the Anglo-Catholic branch of the Episcopal Church. Indeed, as a progressive parish, we value our heritage, but are grounded in the present. Mystery, beauty, and a profound respect for the Prayer Book tradition are core values as we seek to offer our very best in worship to the praise and glory to God (Visit St Paul's website).
We are a welcoming and affirming congregation that values diversity. Indeed, we are proud of the fact the first woman on a Vestry from Minnesota was elected at St. Paul’s, and the Rev. Jeanette Piccard, one of the first women priests in the Episcopal Church, was a long-time member.
We actively welcome GLBT individuals and couples. In addition, we seek to be a multi-cultural community of faith where diverse theological perspectives join in a common community life formed and deepened in worship.
We have a strong tradition of being committed to the transformation of ourselves and society in the areas of peace, care for creation, and social justice. We invite you to join these efforts in a way that fits for you.
St. Paul’s vision is focused on four areas:
+ Radical Hospitality + Inspiring Worship + Spiritual Formation + Passionate Advocacy +
