Event Description

The Episcopal Church of St. Paul & St. James on the corner of Chapel and Olive has been the entrance to the Wooster Square neighborhood for over 180 years. As the oldest church in the Wooster Square, we have long been known for our radical outreach to our community, our diversity and inclusiveness. We have been a part of the fabric of this neighborhood as it has changed over the decades and thus we have had to change and adapt. Like many churches today, we have inherited a building that is too large for us right now.

With about 39,000 total square feet, our physical plant can be seen as a challenge or an opportunity. We prefer to see this as an opportunity to be something different and put our building to good use. Currently, we have at least 6,000 square feet that is being underutilized and we need your help to figure out how we can use it to benefit our community.

We also are faced with some real financial realities. Whatever happens to portion of our building, we need it will make fiscal sense as well. We are looking for creative ideas from our surrounding neighbors and also want everyone to communicate our present situation. We want to be here for at least another 180 years in this location, so we need your help.

We need your ideas on how we can use our building to improve our neighborhood and our city; we need your creative energy and your presence. We need you to help us figure out what would best serve this neighborhood at this time.

Please join us on December 4th from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM in our parish hall. We are located at 57 Olive Street. We will provide pizza and you will bring ideas and energy.

Join us December 4th at 6 PM Come have pizza and share possibilities.
