Letter to our Rector Candidates



Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Woodbury, Connecticut, extends its heartfelt greetings to those discerning a call.  As was promised in Jeremiah, God will give us a leader after God's own heart, who will guide us with wisdom and understanding.  Is this where God is leading you?

Stating that Woodbury is the birthplace of the Episcopal Church of the United States is a bold statement.  Our connection is outlined in more detail in the Parish History portion of our website, and because of this auspicious history, we are irrevocably linked to the Episcopal Church.

St. Paul's is a spiritually robust Christian community.  Our congregation is a happy group composed of all ages, and we celebrate together in traditional and contemporary services.  We describe ourselves as a formally informal church.  Although our historic building, crystal chandeliers and stained glass windows lend a formal appearance, as a community we have fun and always try to remain current with the times.

Woodbury, nestled in the Litchfield Hills, has been graced with a natural beauty that God likes to show off with the change of the seasons.  We have a state-recognized school system, many local activities and close proximity to larger communities for expanded interests and cultural endeavors. 

We invite you to begin your acquaintance with us through this Transition portion of our website.


The St. Paul's Transition Team
