No matter where you’ve been in life, no matter where you’re going, no matter where you are on your journey with God or do not believe; know that at St. Peter’s, you are welcome at our church.
Office of The Blessed Virgin Mary
Please join us on the first Sunday of each month at 9:15 a.m. before the regular services (excluding Easter Sunday). This is a time of scripture and prayer similar to Morning Prayer with a special reflection on how we may model our own discipleship on that of our Lord's Mother.
Anglican Rosary Meditation
Please join us Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m. before the regular services (except for the first Sundays of each month). Instruction and knotted Anglican rosaries are provided. All are most welcome.

Light Supper and Evening Prayer
Thursday, March 14, 2019
Dinner will be at 5:30 p.m. with Evening Prayer starting at 6:30 p.m. Please let Glenn know if you will be attending so that we can make sure there is enough food for everyone.
A Synopsis of the evening: Many parables of Jesus and events in the Gospels speak of gathering together to share food and to pray, and so we begin our act of worship by sharing an actual meal together. Following the supper, we gather upstairs to continue our worship with Evening Prayer. The service has been adapted to make it a comfortable and prayerful event for both churchgoers and newcomers. Its wording is modern, it is interactive and anyone may take a turn at reading if they choose. It is also a service rich in symbols – as we had earlier been gathered as one community around our dinner table, we gather as one community in prayer around Christ’s Table, the Altar; a single candle is lit to represent Christ the Light of the World; from that single light we pass the peace and illuminate the darkness around us with the Light of Christ; we light a common household stick of incense, an ancient biblical symbol of prayer; our music is from the Taize community – short meditative hymns of one or two lines set to simple tunes; and we listen to the voice of God both in the readings and in the silence.
My thanks to Frances Hatherly, Irene Liverpool and the Kellars for their contributions to these events. My thanks also to all who have joined us. If you have never been out for these Thursday evenings, I invite you to join us. ... Glenn Godfrey
