A Warm Welcome Awaits You!

2019 marked the 250th Anniversary Year of St. Paul's Parish.

Come and worship! All are welcome!

There will be two celebrations of the Holy Eucharist at St. Paul’s on Sunday, May 16, 2021:



Ascension: The Ascension of Jesus Christ commemorates that moment when his resurrected body physically departs the Earth by rising into heaven, in the presence of eleven of the apostles. According to the Bible, the ascension occurred forty days after the resurrection. This is reflected in the creeds. Our commemoration affirms the uniqueness of Christ and reminds us to get on with the ministry we’ve been called to, to love one another.

This Week at St. Paul’s

We are an Affirming Congregation and a companion member of The Charter for Compassion

I am asking your support to share the opportunity of fundraising for A Light for Every Birth, the project in Mozambique where we hope to equip 50 rural health facilities with solar power. A solar panel on the roof of the health clinic connected to a ‘solar suitcase’ inside the health clinic from which there are phone charging ports, a headlamp and a fetal Doppler to monitor the baby’s heartbeat. Plus it provides electricity and brings light to the delivery room – a welcome for moms-to-be as well as the midwives and other medical staff there to make possible a safe birth and new life. Our earlier phase, in 2016, of equipping 30 health facilities in Mozambique with solar panels and suitcases, continues to be life-saving and the suitcases today are all working, thanks to trained community women and men. The infographic explains even more but suffice to say that this week even the Globe and Mail interviewed us for a story for their upcoming Canada-wide philanthropy print and electronic supplement.

A single solar suitcase costs $5,800, including installation, training, and transportation. I am asking for your suggestions as to how we can introduce A Light for Every Birth to others who may wish to support PWRDF our partner in Mozambique:



  • A parish or a collection of parishes that may be interested to see the project as a summer-time engagement initiative. Perhaps there are parishes that have not been so engaged in supporting PWRDF but who may see this as an opportunity to give back.

  • A foundation, a Lion’s Club or Rotary Club or equivalent that may also wish to raise funds and raise awareness about solutions, what we can do as Canadians to respond to health needs around the world, to climate change and to gender equality. How much more welcoming it is for women to give birth in a safe, well-lit health facility and at night (my two children were both born at night!)

  • A local business where you may know one of the staff, perhaps the owner, where there may be an opportunity for an employee engagement / fundraiser – to raise funds, barometer-style, for our global citizens.

  • Someone in your circles who may see a Light for every Birth as a birthday or anniversary fundraiser, a tribute perhaps to someone or some event where a gift of $5800 can be a kind demonstration of compassion. While $5800 is a lot, there may be creative ways in which people come together to contribute and give what they can.

  • Our fundraising team can help with setting up a fundraising/crowdfunding page for individuals, churches or groups, linked to PWRDF's website (similar to those used by Valerie and John for their birthday fundraisers) to make it easy to donate online.

PWRDF has developed a brand new video to showcase A Light for Every Birth. The link to the video is here. Clear and share-able - including with those who may not know so much about PWRDF but would set aside 90 seconds to learn more. There may be others in your circles who would be interested to make a contribution towards the project as a whole.

Welcome to St Paul's Anglican Church. We are a vibrant, diverse community ministering in downtown Charlottetown.

You are welcome to St. Paul's whatever your age or stage of life. Whether you are just curious about living a life of faith or you are a Christian seeking a nurturing community, we have a ministry, activity, or worship format to meet your spiritual needs. And we are always seeking people who want to join us in ministry of others as we spread the good news of God's love and grace for all people.

St Paul's Anglican Church gathers for worship in a historic stone church in downtown Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The Parish is a part of the Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

We are a welcoming and inclusive community of Christian people who are receptive to change and open to exploring new ways of living out our faith in our daily lives. Our community includes people from a wide range of backgrounds, at various stages on their journey of faith, and with wide range of training, skills and professions. We value and celebrate this diversity.

We respond to the great love of God by welcoming and celebrating God's love for ourselves, and by reflecting this same care and value to one another, and to all creation. In the spirit of mutual or enabling ministry, members of St Paul's are encouraged to use their gifts in ministry, both within the congregation and in the wider community, to ensure a sustainable future for all creation.

All are welcome and all may find a place here.

The purpose of this site is to show what we are up to in our Church community. Members of our community can be informed about up coming activities through this site and visitors may be enticed to visit us in person.
