Online Life at St. Paul’s Ivy
Adult Formation: Wednesday Evening Adult Formation will meet online at 6:30m beginning May 6. Over six weeks, Fr. Justin will explore with participants several major questions that Christians in 21st century America encounter as they dialogue with non-Christians and non-believers: Is faith reasonable? Is the Bible trustworthy? Is this world all there is? Is belief in God compatible with human suffering? Is Christianity the only true worldview? Is Christianity a source of evil and division? All are welcome to participate in this online class, which will take place on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30PM, starting May 6.
Children’s Formation: Our children are invited to join Church Days in PJs online every Sunday morning at 9:30am. The Youth of St. Paul’s Ivy meet online at 5:00pm on Sundays for Sunday Funday games, chat and catching up. Contact Audi Barlow for more information.

We know many will be unable to attend worship in the coming weeks and the Forward Movement offers this prayer for those who long to receive Communion but are unable to:
“Lord Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
