Generous Community · Enduring Worship · Gracious Welcome
Welcome to St. Paul's Leavenworth
Thank you for your interest in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Leavenworth, Kansas. We sincerely and cordially invite you to join us at St. Paul’s and experience for yourself our generous community, enduring worship, and gracious welcome.
St. Paul’s is the oldest church in the diocese of Kansas and the first established church in Kansas territory! It was organized with the support of St. Paul’s Church, New Haven, Connecticut on December 10, 1856, three years before the diocese itself was established. The history and tradition of this, the first Episcopal congregation in Kansas, are important touchpoints for our parishioners and constant reminders of who we are and what we are asked to do and be as members of the Body of Christ in our community, the region, and the world.
St. Paul’s plays an active role in ministering to the needs of the local community with outreach programs supporting the Leavenworth Interfaith Community of Hope (serving the homeless and underprivileged members of our community); a community meal program feeding up to 300 people most days of the year (St. Paul's provides meals the second Saturday of each month); Backpack Buddies, a nutritional augmentation program serving underprivileged children in our local unified school districts; and Kids’ Connection, an after-school activity and mentorship program, again serving underprivileged children in the local area. The parish also maintains a supply of medical and home health equipment which is available to members of the community who need it.
