St. Paul's Parish

A place for you, 365 days of the year.

Who We Are

Welcome to St. Paul's, K Street! We invite you to join us on any day of the year. Daily worship is at the heart of this parish church, and at St. Paul’s we celebrate Mass 365 days of the year. The church is located in the midst of busy downtown Washington, only minutes from government offices, the Kennedy Center, and several local universities. Our ministries, fellowship, hospitality, spreading of the Gospel by word and example, outreach to the poor in our community, and formation as Christians all flow from the daily worship of God together.

As a parish within the Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church, our worship is grounded in the rich liturgical heritage of The Book of Common Prayer, expressing a worship tradition rooted in two thousand years of church history. Whether we gather for a formal high Mass sung by one of our extraordinary choirs, the simple daily recitation of Morning or Evening Prayer in our small chapel, or silent contemplative prayer together, the rhythm of daily worship underpins everything we do. We invite you to worship with us and find out what makes us who we are.

Our parishioners come from a wide range of religious, political, social, and economic backgrounds. A quick survey of a pew on Sunday might find worshipers from varied religious backgrounds, and federal workers from both the left and the right mingle at coffee hour. All are united as one body in Christ and join together in the worship and mission of the church. We hope you will join us in this commitment.

What to Expect

What are services like?

At St. Paul’s, we use liturgy, ceremony, and music to engage all of our senses and bring powerful emotional symbolism and energy to our worship. Each Sunday, a visitor can expect to be drawn in to worship of the living God through sight, smell, hearing, and taste. It's an extraordinary aspect of our Anglo-Catholic heritage!


What is the community like?

We are a warm, welcoming, and loving community. We are passionate and come from all walks of life. Because we offer public worship every day of the year, we are dependable, and our parish life is committed to being there for society and the world--always. We seek to invite you into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ through all that we do.


What if I'm not a Christian?

You are always welcome! One of the most beautiful aspects of our elaborate and sensory-laden worship is that there is something in it for everyone. It is full of mystery and awe.
