Come and worship! All are welcome!

Changes to our COVID-19 protocols

  • Prince Edward Island has ended the mandate to wear masks in indoor public places. Although masks are not mandated, CPHO still strongly recommends their use. The Parish of St. Paul’s will take the same approach and no longer mandate mask wearing, but we will continue to encourage the wearing of mask.

  • This easing of the mask wearing protocol does not yet apply to the choir.

  • We are no longer asking people to pre-register with Eventbrite.

  • We are committed to using our whole space effectively and will continue to social distance as much as possible in the church-building. We will continue to offer sanitizers and encourage their frequent use. We will also provide masks for people who forgot theirs.

  • Please, if you are not feeling well on Sunday morning, stay home.

  • We have lots of Covid-19 testing kits and you welcome to take some home.

  • We will continue to use the individual communion cups to administer the wine.

  • If there are enhancements to the provincial protocols, we will abide by those rules that are in place on any given day.

From the Rector

  • Whereas John fully supports the Parish Council in this decision, he wishes to make it known that, for the time being, he would rather not be shaking hands or hugging people on Sunday mornings. This is, “for everyone’s protection.”


If you want, you can join the online worship service available on our Facebook page and YouTube Channel.

PWRDF joins fight to end hunger, with help from government match

In response to the hunger emergency unfolding around the world, including many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, 12 leading Canadian aid agencies are joining forces as the Humanitarian Coalition to raise funds and rush assistance to people on the edge of famine.

The Canadian Government has committed $250 million to address the global food crisis, and announced last week it will match donations to the Humanitarian Coalition’s member charities 1:1, up to $5 million. Donations made by July 17, 2022 are eligible.

According to the World Food Programme, 50 million people are facing emergency levels of hunger and the number of severely food insecure people has more than doubled in the last two years. The reasons for this sudden increase include:

  • Extended drought and other climate shocks that are wreaking havoc on food supplies and livelihoods.

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has had severe economic consequences in many countries.

  • The conflict in Ukraine is having a direct impact on access to basic food supplies.

“This unprecedented global hunger crisis compels us to action,” says Richard Morgan, executive director of the Humanitarian Coalition. “Our member charities are rallying together to save lives, but we also need Canadians across the country to do their part. We are grateful to the federal government for matching the public’s donations. Together we can provide food, water and urgent care to families on the brink of starvation.”

PWRDF has been supporting programs in many of the countries where the situation is most dire, including Kenya. PWRDF is in partnership with Church World Service in an area of northern Kenya. “Children have already died because of hunger, millions of animals have died and women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities are having to fend for themselves,” says PWRDF Executive Director Will Postma. “Our support, your support, can help stop hunger and restore livelihoods.”

How you can help

All donations made by individuals to PWRDF’s Humanitarian Coalition Hunger Relief Appeal by July 17 will be matched by the Government of Canada. To donate online, visit pwrdf.org/give-today then choose Humanitarian Coalition Appeal to End Hunger. You may also send a cheque payable to PWRDF to 80 Hayden Street, 3rd floor, Toronto, Ontario, M4Y 3G2. (Please note Humanitarian Coalition on the memo.) You can also donate by phone at 416-822-9083 or leave a voicemail toll-free at 1-866-308-7973 and we will return your call.

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.
