Part of the Larger Church

One of the amazing things about being connected to St. Paul's Lewiston is that we never walk alone.  We are part of a larger body, one that longs to reach out into thr world to make a difference.  We are part of the Niagara Deanery, the Diocese of Western New York, Provence II of The Episcopal Church, and part of the Anglican Communion. 

Not only do we as a parish reach out to help our fellow brothers and sisters, but we can join into a larger body of Christ to have an even greater impact.
