St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Holyoke, is a sacramental church with Jesus Christ as our center. We are called by God to be good stewards of our blessings and to spread God’s Word. We do this by responding to the needs of our parish, our community and our world through prayer, education, service, hope and love. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is a member of the The Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts.

Our Mission

St. Paul’s Church strives to be open in spirit, deep in faith, rich in worship, and active in service.

Saint Paul’s is a Believe Out Loud Church

Faith is a journey that reveals the new and unexpected everyday.  Just as Abraham set forth on a journey in response to God’s call, we are travelers on an unknown, wondrous and sometimes frightening path. Each of us is made in God’s image – beautiful and beloved, unique and whole. 

The greatest commandment is love. We strive to love God with all our hearts, all our minds and all our souls and to love our neighbors as ourselves. 

Jesus teaches us to welcome all.  We believe our churches and society should do the same. We work for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equality because God calls us to do justice and love kindness.

One day, all of us – regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity – will be treated as equals in our families, our churches and our communities.
