Christian Formation

Children’s Lenten Program

From Harry Potter to The Wizard of Oz, St. Peter’s youth take a Christian journey through the lens of the classics—a truly incredible experience for children and adults, alike!

Adult Lenten Program

Lent is a season to reflect, a time to deliberately make space and time to listen more deeply to God, ourselves and others.  The act of listening changes us and everything around us — it re-orders things and reconnects things.  It changes the rhythm of our daily lives placing our relationship with God at the center.  This year it is “Listening with all your heart, soul, strength and mind.”

Communications Committee

Can you design a website?  Do you have a marketing or public relations background?  The Comms Committee wants YOU!  We won’t wear you out, we WILL build you UP

Fellowship Commission

St. Peter’s is long on fellowship activities that bring parishioners of all ages together.   These activities include, but are not limited to: weekly coffee hour, newcomers welcome, Lunch Bunch, parish retreat at Shrine Mont, Seder Dinner, Women’s Retreat, Shrove Tuesday Dinner, Cornerstones (activities built for families with young children).  If you’d like to join the fun, please let us know!

Worship: Chalicists, Layreaders, Altar Guild, Flowers, Acolytes

At the core of St. Peter’s are our worship services.  We have three each Sunday: 8:00 a.m. for the early birds; 9:00 a.m. geared toward, but certainly not limited to, families; and 11:00 a.m. for ALL the REST!

Finance Committee

St. Peter’s has set forth robust programs for enriching parishioners spiritual experience, both inside and outside the walls of St. Peter’s.  With multiple avenues for every age group, the stewardship model is structured to not only sustain existing programs, but support those programs that evolve organically out of an active and vibrant parish.  With God’s grace and the generosity of nearly every St. Peter’s congregant, we are truly sent out to serve with joy (and the financial backing to be successful!). 

Building & Grounds

St. Peter’s has a remarkable team of architects, builders, carpenters, landscapers, gardeners and just plain providers of elbow grease to keep the bricks, mortar and surrounding grounds looking amazing and inviting.  If it is functional, beautiful, seasonal or welcoming, you can bet that B&G had a hand in it.  All are encouraged to participate in keeping St. Peter’s gorgeous.

International Ministries and Partnerships

Dominican Republic: Through the Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic, St. Peter’s parishioners traveled to the island nation to provide children with a safe haven through building the school Nino Jesus in Montellano and leading Vacation Bible School in Montellano and Mosovi.  Both projects were in partnership with the parishes Iglesia Episcopal Santa Maria Virgen and Divina Gracia.

South Africa: Through the St. Francis Outreach Trust in Simon’s Town-building and managing two homes for children orphaned by the HIV/AIDS pandemic in the Western Cape of South Africa.

Heifer International: St. Peter’s has held two youth Lenten programs to benefit Heifer International.  Each Sunday School class adopted an animal and raised funds to provide that particular species to villages in need of sustainable, values-based holistic development.  St. Peter’s has contributed over $6,500.00!!
