About us

Founded in 1827, St. Paul’s is an historic and active parish. For close to two centuries, we have sought to make God’s message of hope and love known in the Rochester community. 
 

Today, we continue to honor God as a vibrant and inclusive congregation. We are committed to ministries of prayer and worship, lifelong Christian learning, community engagement and outreach, and compassionate care for one another and for the world. We celebrate our growth, our diversity and the great privilege we have in welcoming all who seek to serve God in the world. We welcome all who long to know God’s reign of mercy and love. We welcome you!


We invite all—believers, seekers and skeptics—to participate in our worship. Whether or not you are a member of St. Paul’s, there is a place for you in our search for God.

Becoming a member

If you are an Episcopalian, simply let us know the name of your last parish, and we will write to request a Letter of Transfer. 

If you come from another Christian tradition (Methodist, Presbyterian, Catholic, etc.) and have been baptized, you may have your baptism recorded here. Simply complete a form that we will provide you upon request. 

If you have not been baptized, you may request baptism. Simply make an appointment to speak to one of the clergy.
