Welcome ~ bienvenido
Saints Peter and Paul Episcopal/San Pedro y San Pablo Episcopal is a vibrant bi-lingual, bi-cultural congregation on Portland’s East Side. We are “one congregation with two languages” and are exploring how to pray and serve and grow together.
Our worship is Catholic in “feel” and faith with a monthly bi-lingual service as well as a monthly Celtic service in English. Our way of life is one of service to the marginalized people of the neighborhood, of radical welcome and hospitality, and of support given to one another as we seek and serve the God who became flesh for us. We believe that God continues to take flesh in our midst and in the faces of the poor.
Our welcome is unconditional. As a “Believe Out Loud” congregation, we welcome and affirm those of all sexual orientations and identities.
San Pedro y San Pablo Episcopal / San Pedro y San Pablo Episcopal es una vibrante bilingüe, congregación bicultural en el este de Portland. Somos "una congregación con dos lenguas", y estamos explorando cómo orar y servir y crecer juntos.
Nuestra adoración es católica en la "sensación" y la fe con un servicio bilingüe mensual, así como un servicio de Celtic mensual en Inglés. Nuestra forma de vida es una de servicio a las personas marginadas del barrio, de la bienvenida y la hospitalidad radical, y de apoyo a los otros a medida que buscamos y servimos al Dios que se hizo VERDAERO para nosotros. Creemos que Dios sigue SIENDO VERDADERO en medio de nosotros y en las caras de los pobres.
La bienvenida es incondicional. Como "Believe Out Loud" congregación, le invitamos y afirmamos los de todas las orientaciones e identidades sexuales.
To the church members and Montavilla Neighbors of Sts. Peter and Paul’s:
The time has come again to collect for the homeless and needy neighbors that are a part of our lives here in Montavilla. The Saturday morning feeding program Brigid’s Coffee Hour will be collecting items to be given to our Saturday morning visitors on December 27.
The Church office hours are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm if you would like to donate items. The collection box/table can be found in the hall by the church office. Or you can donate money so that we can buy what supplies we are short on. Make checks out to Sts. Peter and Paul, and note that the donation is for the Christmas breakfast. Please keep in mind that we need gently used blankets or coats, and NEW toiletries, among other things. Thank you for your help!
