about St. Paul's Episcopal Church and Centennial Garden:
Children are warmly welcomed in the parish and programs include a staffed nursery for young children and a Montessori-inspired Godly Play educational program during the 10:30am Sunday liturgy. Children participate in Godly Play during the first part of the liturgy, then join the congregation for the remainder of the service. A weekly music class for children ages six and up focuses on choral singing and basic music reading skills.
The parish community is warm, accepting, and diverse, and while the liturgies are somewhat formal, typical casual Seattle attire is perfectly acceptable here.
Those not seeking a place of worship may still enjoy a visit to St. Paul's Centennial Garden, a lovely and unique urban oasis. Dedicated in 2005, the Garden features beautiful landscaping and a quiet fountain surrounding a sandblasted and stained concrete labyrinth, modeled after the medieval labyrinth in Chartres Cathedral, France. Its twists and turns offer an opportunity for a calm, meditative stroll, or a stimulating challenge for children.
