Catechumenate or (katəˈkyoōmənate) or κατηχούμενος


  • Catechumenate comes from a Greek word meaning “to learn and explore.” The Catechumenate is a place where we explore what it means to be a human being and a person of faith within our community. Catechumenate provides a place to slow down, a space to truly listen to other people, and a time to honestly speak about what they believe. The small groups are the key. As one “catechumen” put it, “The Catechumenate provides that balance between chaos and structure that is sometimes lacking in our daily lives, but is so key in helping to learn about oneself.”
  • Here at St. Paul’s we will be having a five session Catechumenate in preparation for reception into the Episcopal Church which will be held on March 19. Please call the office or email Rev. Sarah if you are interested.


E.C.W. will meet on Monday, January 9 at 6:30pm in the French Memorial.  We will have an old-fashioned Yankee Swap.  Gifts for the swap should have a value of $10-$15.

The hostesses are Jean Kooken and Marlene Smith.  For more information, call Lili 978-687-0618 or Paula (978) 851-4061.


The Outreach Team is collecting warm winter

socks for the guests of Charlie’s Place, Washington, DC.

Please consider donating a pair or package to keep the homeless

and less fortunate a bit warmer this winter season.

A labeled basket is located at the entrance to Church.

Many thanks for your thoughtfulness and generosity

in your support of Charlie’s Place and those in need!

The Cor Unum Meal Center

The Cor Unum Meal Center welcomes hungry visitors for breakfast and dinner every day.  To date, it has provided over 1 million free meals to thousands of men, women and children who suffer from hunger in Lawrence and the surrounding area.  Additionally, it offers a warm, safe place for people to socialize.

The facility has only two employees yet typically serves about 700 meals a day.  Therefore, it relies on “an army of generous volunteers” to fulfill its mission.    People help by serving meals, bussing tables or cleaning in the kitchen.

Our next volunteer opportunity is scheduled for Friday, January 20th from 4-7 pm.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to our Outreach Ministry~

Cheryl Means, chair
