See what’s happening at St. Peter’s in Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany.
St. Peter’s Episcopal Church will continue its Thanksgiving tradition in a slightly different style due to Covid-19. Instead of the usual sit-down dinner in the church’s parish hall, the meal will be exclusively take-out. Come for dinner on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 25, from 12:30 to 2:00 PM. Meals can be picked up at the parking lot entrance to the parish hall. Masks and social distancing required.
This Sunday, October 10, we depart from our regular Pentecost season liturgy to remember Indigenous Peoples’ Day at both services. Special lections, hymns, and a litany for healing and restoration will be offered to remember the Wabenaki here in Dawnland and indigenous peoples throughout this country.
Please join St. Peter’s on Tuesday, November 2, at 5:30 PM, for a service dedicated to all whose lives have been touched by suicide. In a spirit of loving witness, we gather to lament, to acknowledge our collective reluctance to reach out to those who suffer, and to share our stories. Donations this year will go to support The Landing Place, an after-school teen center in Rockland.
The Dancing Elephant yoga studio in Rockport has invited us at St. Peter’s to join them in two sessions of Wabenaki REACH programming. The sessions will be held on Friday, October 1, and Friday, November 5, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM via Zoom. A link will be sent with registration.
This change comes to accommodate the many (maybe even most) of our parishioners for whom 9:00 is too early. Many of us who are older take medications that require gentler, slower
St. Peter’s is now open at capacity for in-person worship to fully vaccinated persons. As long as Knox County is designated as level orange for Covid spread, however, we will not share a common cup, but will have communion with bread only. Also, worshipers will now be required to wear masks and provide proof of vaccination.
