Centering Prayer Group – Temporarily Suspended

Centering Prayer Group – Temporarily Suspended

Given the current evidence that vaccinated and boostered persons are contracting the omicron virus, the Centering Pray group has made the decision to temporarily suspend meeting either in-person at the church (with masks) or via Zoom.  This decision will be re-evaluated pending future assessments of the risks of spreading or contracting the virus.

A Centering Prayer group meets the 2nd and 4th Saturday mornings of each month from 9:00 to 10:00 in the reception area outside the Rectors office (second floor of the the office wing). Our general practice is to observe about 20 minutes of silent meditation, then exchange reflections and end with another period of centering prayer. If you are looking for a way to enter into a deeper relationship with the Holy, a path that goes beyond rational thought into the heart of the silent Word, consider joining the group. Newcomers are always welcome. The group will help you to ease into ways of thinking and entering into silent meditation to find a deeper relationship with your soul and with God. If you don’t know much about Centering Prayer, you can also go online and Google “Centering Prayer” to learn more. For more information, contact Mary Alice Bird through St. Peter’s office, 594-8191.

Celtic Evening Eucharist

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.

Holy Eucharist with Music – One Morning Service Only

Holy Eucharist with Music – One Morning Service Only

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.
