It is up to you and in your control to specify what notifications your linked calendar will trigger for delivery to you.

Are you already subscribing to the OLD St. Paul Google Calendar?
IF you are currently subscribing your personal calendar to the Google hosted calendar, you may continue to do so but it is not recommended. The OLD Google calendar will no longer be directly maintained. Instead it will be updated by subscribing "it" to all events on the calendar integrated into our website. And that means there may be small time delays for events added or changed to push into the Google calendar. In short, it is recommended that you change your calendar link to one of the above links or define your own.
Moreover, the benefit of unsubscribing from the Google calendar is you have the option to subscribe to just Church Services and Special Events or create you own custom subscription picking only the event categories you want to integrate. Thereby not cluttering up your personal calendar with miscellaneous Church schedules such as cleaning or Parish Hall Use appointments. Alternately by following the instructions displayed above you can create your own custom filtered link.
For reference purposes only the iCal url to the OLD Google calendar is: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/stpaulhopkinton%40gmail.com/public/basic.ics
