Weekday Morning Prayer and Tuesday Noon Eucharist. Monday–Friday, 8:00–8:30 a.m. Morning Prayer in the Chapel of the Saints is a beautiful offering for the start of the day. On Tuesdays at Noon, we offer a 30-minute celebration of the Holy Eucharist in the Chapel. All are invited and encouraged to bring guests to any and all of these weekday offerings.

Sunday Formation for Youth and Children, weekly. Journey to Adulthood (J2A) youth, ages 13–18, meet in the Youth Suite (basement level, Parish House).

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd children, ages 2–12, meet on first floor in the Toddler Atrium and Levels 1–3 Atria (classrooms). 9:30–10:30 a.m. in the Parish House.

Sunday Formation for Adults, March 5, 9:30–10:30 a.m. The Parish Hall Forum (second floor, Parish House) will explore “Reconciliation: The Mission of the Church” led by the Reverend Ollie V. Rencher. The conversation will highlight St. Peter’s intentional commitment to reconciliation of all sorts, opportunities that all Christians have to reconcile, and information about the reconciliation aspects of the Rector’s sabbatical, which begins on March 6. Looking ahead to March 12, the Parish Hall Forum will focus on “Engaging Holy Week: Palm/Passion Sunday,” with Mr. Josiah Daniels leading the discussion. This session will explore the meaning of Palm/Passion Sunday, especially as it relates to Anglican worship.

Sunday Evenings at St. Peter’s: Evensong and Taizé. All are invited to experience alternative contemplative ways to begin the week: worship on most Sundays at 5:00 p.m. On most second and fourth Sundays, Choral Evensong and Holy Eucharist is offered. On every third Sunday, a meditative Taizé Holy Eucharist is offered, which includes music for piano. The Winter-Spring 2017 schedule for Sunday Evenings at St. Peter’s is available by clicking here.

Our Witness to the World: Inspiration from the Saints. The Church has always celebrated how the Spirit of Christ has been revealed in the lives of Holy Women and Holy Men. Through the body of Christ, we are joined to them in our worship and in our daily lives. Learn about these companions on St. Peter’s website,, under the “Learning” tab, where their history can be found under “Inspiration from Saints.”

Visual Changes in Our Sacred Space during Lent. Beginning on Ash Wednesday, the 40-day covering of certain religious symbols, including images and processional crosses is part of what is called the “Lenten Array” at St. Peter’s. Medieval symbols depicted in the dossal veil, which now covers the mosaic at the altar, are a rooster (crowed after Peter’s third denial of Jesus) and what appears to be the combination of a lance (used to pierce the side of Jesus as he hung on the cross) and a reed (was placed in Jesus’ hand as a royal scepter in mockery). On either side of Jesus are two of the women who followed him from Galilee to Calvary and at the foot of the cross is the image of Jesus as Lamb of God.

Lenten Meditations 2017 Booklet. Copies are available in the lobby and entrances to the nave of the church or online by clicking here. This year’s devotional focuses on creating economic opportunities and strengthening communities, with a particular focus on empowering women. The daily readings are co-authored by a group of leaders from across the Anglican Communion, who bring a range of perspectives as they reflect on Scripture and other sources of spiritual wisdom.

Parish Community Monthly Potlucks: Great First Success! On Sunday, February 12, more than 75 adults, youth, and children gathered at small tables for our first 2017 monthly Parish Potluck at 12:15 p.m. in the Community Room and Parish Hall (second floor, Parish House). Created to foster better community on the most convenient day for our urban parish church, all are invited to share in these “no pressure” meals. Each month, on the second Sunday of the month, a different parish ministry group or team will sponsor and organize the event. The next gathering will be Sunday, March 12 for which we are seeking a host. This is a great opportunity for your group or ministry team to share its story with the wider parish, and smaller groups can pair up. Hosts are responsible for setup/cleanup, and providing basic potluck entrees. To reserve your spot for March or future months, contact Ministry Associate, Elaine Wood (, 704-749-6141).

How the potlucks work: If your name begins with the letter A-M, bring something savory; if it begins with the letter N-Z, bring something sweet. If you forget to bring something or arrive to church unaware, come anyway to enjoy fellowship and food. Watch the eNews, Website, and Bulletin Boards for details.

An Invitation from the Parish St. Mary’s Guild. How do you tell the history of St. Peter’s? One of the ways is through the story of the St. Mary’s guild. We are a group of women who, along with many of our parents and children, have been active members of this parish for many years. We are no longer affiliated with the Episcopal Church Women, but most of us have a long guild history. We meet the first Monday morning of each month (except July and August) in a member’s home for fellowship, Bible study, and service projects for the parish and community. Some past service projects included: altar linens, kneeler cushions for the chapel, and renovation of the sacristy, as well as support for summer programs for at risk children, the Augustine project and many other works that support the parish. We have stories and history to tell and we would love to have you join our journey. If you are interested in finding out more about our guild, or would like to join, contact Lynn Lakin (
