You have found Saint Paul's Episcopal Church's website and although we are a very historically sound congregation dating back to 1790, we are quite new to the internet.
Our Sunday services are at 8:00 am and 10:00 am, with Sunday School being held during the 10 am service. The children do process into the church at Communion time. We are very centrally located in Bloomsburg, PA, right on Main Street where it intersects with Iron Street. Parking is convienent on Main Street or in one of the Municipal Parking lots surrounding the Main Street shopping district.
At the present time, Father David S. Bateman is our Rector. He has been with us since August and is helping us through the many steps required as we begin our permanent rector discernment process.
Please feel free to stop by and say "hello" or join us for a Sunday Service.
