News: In 2019, the Historic Rectory underwent a major renovation, overseen by The Rev. Mary Luck Stanley, Associate Rector, to restore it for the ministry purposes of the parishioners of Old St. Paul’s Church. After thirty years of being leased away to an outside group, the Historic Rectory has been reclaimed by the church and will now be serving as an “Urban Retreat House” on the first floor, and as the “Parish Offices” on the second floor. Lauren Myatt and Peter Schwab, from Murphy & Dittenhafer Architects, provided the designs for the 2019 renovation. A.R. Marani Inc. General Contractors managed the nine month construction. On May 18, 2019, clergy, church leaders, architects, and contractors gathered at the Historic Rectory for a “House Blessing” to mark the beginning of a new season for this building that was once a home for the clergy of St. Paul’s, and is now a gathering place for the church’s members. Clergy and Vestry Members from 2013-2019 voted to be good stewards of this historic property by providing the resources to restore the grandure of this 1791 home, thus contributing to the beautification of downtown Baltimore.
