Find peace of mind and spirit

The Halifax congregation that would within a decade be named after the Apostle Paul was established in 1749; its building rose at one end of the Grand Parade up the hill from the harbour the following summer. And that order of things is crucial when talking about sanctuary, for it is a community of faith—’the church’ that hallows the building we call ‘a church’ and makes its space into a sanctuary.

A sanctuary is a place of refuge from danger, and many have entered St. Paul’s Church with that in mind since the mid-eighteenth century. In its early days the most obviously vulnerable have sought refuge, or been carried to it, during catastrophes—the injured, the dying, the dead. But over the decades others have continued to stream in.  Please note that current Provincial Health protocols are being implemented (masks required, etc.).
