The parish of St. Paul’s was established in 1822 and the current building was completed in 1889. The dramatic Conversion of St. Paul painting was done in 1893 and the ceiling paintings of the life of St. Paul were done in 1911 by G. Caroselli.
“To have the sound wash over me in soft or in crashing tidal waves, is both moving and stimulating. Noel Edison’s leadership continues to elicit the best from the Choir which is both exciting and heavenly. Loved every moment!”
