All who gather together for the Celtic Eucharist are welcome to join us for a light dinner in the Parish Hall directly after the end of the service.
St. Francis loved all of God’s creatures, and so do we. Bring your pet (or favorite stuffed animal) for a blessing at this brief service outdoors, weather permitting, at 10:00 a.m. on the grounds of St. Peter’s and the playground. In the even of rain, the service will be held in St. Peter’s parish hall.
Our Celtic worship, drawn from the liturgical traditions of Iona and Northumbria, combines meditative silence, simplicity of utterance, and the faithful commitment of care for the earth. This way of prayer of opening oneself to God’s love, God’s forgiveness, and God’s hope – to the fullness of God’s presence in our lives – is hundreds of years old but also speaks with immediacy to the yearning of our hearts now.
The Vestry invites you to hear the recommendations of the Future Directions Task Force after the service.
Worship is central to our life as a Christian community here at St. Peter’s Church and we provide several differing styles of services to appeal to a wide range of people.
On Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. (10:00 during the summer) we celebrate Holy Eucharist Rite II a modern English vernacular service with music. On the first Sunday of each month the lay leadership roles are filled by the parish youth, the sermon is geared toward the children who are invited to stand with the celebrant at the altar during the Eucharistic Prayer of consecration.
Second Sunday Hymn Sing – Sunday, February 12 and the Second Sunday of every month through June, 4:00-5:00pm. Add your voice to the crowd as we sing the favorites and explore some lesser-known gems. Perfect chance to practice the part-singing techniques you learned last Friday! 5/14, 6/11. All are welcome! Bring your friends! Bring your families! Bring strangers!
