St. Paul's Church, founded in 1827, is the second oldest parish in Rochester and is a part of the world-wide Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester. The parish family strives to be a welcoming place for all and a source of hope and comfort for our world. Nearly one-third of St. Paul's budget is devoted to ministries, programs and projects that benefit people beyond our doors. The Outreach Council helps to oversee the funding of feeding and tutoring programs, refugee support, child care opportunities, and much more. The Outreach Council also provides grants to support and encourage initiatives that support our mission.
