Our Story

St. Paul's has been a solid pillar of Kansas City's faith community since 1891.  


St. Paul’s is an Episcopal Church in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri. We are a diverse congregation committed to urban ministries here in our city, as well as ministries in Haiti and other places in need. We take Christ’s Great Commandment seriously:

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
(MATTHEW 22:37-40)
