Welcome to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Newburyport, Massachusetts. I’m Fr. Jarred Mercer, rector of St. Paul’s. We are a community seeking to follow in the radical and inclusive love of Jesus Christ. We express that love in our worship, service, and communal life together. Our worship is centered on prayer and the Eucharist (also often called the Mass, or Holy Communion), in which we offer our whole selves to God and in turn are placed on offer as a eucharistic gift to others, serving our city, the surrounding areas, and the wider world in Christ’s mercy. St. Paul’s is a place where all are welcome and belong, where all are delighted in and accepted for who they are, and where all are called to participate in God’s reconciliation and redemption of the world through their unique gifts and passions.

Please feel free to contact me for any reason at all at rector@stpauls-nbpt.org 

The video below is an introduction to the Episcopal Church from the National Episcopal Church.


St. Paul’s offers Sunday morning worship, a Wednesday Evening prayer service, and a monthly Contemplative Prayer service. Our Montessori based Sunday School program, called the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, serves children ages 4 to 5th grade.  Our middle schoolers participate in The Lighthouse program and our high school students serves as part of our Youth Leadership Team.

Our many mission activities include the Among Friends program which offers three cooked meals a week to the community at no cost, and a special Global Outreach program to El Salvador. Christian education, a book club, a knitter’s prayer shawl ministry, music program are only some of the rich and varied activities which occur here. Come and check us out. We want you to find a home here.

Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God

(Romans 15:7)
