St. Paulís Episcopal Church is a long-established Episcopal church (1702) in the heart of Chester, a city that has undergone many changes since a time of great prosperity in the 19th and early 20th centuries. From that heyday, there has been economic decline, and now Chester is one of the poorest cities in Pennsylvania. This presents us with a considerable challenge as we strive to maintain our mission of bringing the knowledge and service of Jesus Christ to our community; of sharing and spreading the Good News of Godís love among all people; and of being a welcoming haven of strength and service to our community, with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

In furtherance of this mission, we partner with St. Maryís Episcopal church, at the western end of Chester, and also with Chester Eastside, a community ministry that operates from St. Paulís building. Our clergy ministers to the residents of Episcopal Place at Park Row, housing for seniors  and individuals with special needs. St. Paul's has made its commitment to remain in Chester. We see a future in Chester. We know that things must change and we must do our share to bring about that change. We support City Team, a mission for men in Chester and the Salvation Army and Kidz First. We collect toiletries for the Wesley House, our neighbor at 7th and Madison, an emergency shelter for families and single women.
