An Update from the Rector

The staff and clergy are busy preparing for a full fall schedule at St. Peter’s. August 29 has been reserved for “Re-engagement Sunday,” a morning filled with worship, music, a ministry fair throughout the Parish House, and a block party festival on 7th Street following the 11:15 a.m. service. Formation for all ages will resume on Sunday, September 12.

COVID-19 Update: Preparing to Gather Again

The clergy and staff at St. Peter’s are excited that we are able to begin worshipping in person again, yet we also know many in our community cannot join us and many others are not ready to gather in person. My hope is that our Holy Week and Easter schedule will provide opportunities for all to observe this most holy season, either in person or from afar.

Ash Wednesday at St. Peter’s

Lent is a time to embrace the wilderness. Lent is a season in which we are invited to examine our lives, our relationships with one another, and our relationship with God. In the wilderness, we encounter temptation and false promise, but we also encounter the Living God who invites us to follow the Way of Jesus instead of the ways of the world.

Good Tidings of Great Joy!

Christmas reminds us that God comes into the world not with stormy triumph and might, but with quietness, unexpectedly, wrapped in humility and grace. God is revealed not through the birth of kings and generals, but in the face of a poor peasant baby, born in a stable. In a world not too unlike our own, a world filled with uncertainty and fear, God reveals perfect love through the simple and unsophisticated birth of Jesus.

Welcoming the Right Reverend Anne Hodges-Copple

On Sunday, October 25, we will welcome one of our bishops to St. Peter’s, the VI Bishop Suffragan of North Carolina, the Right Reverend Anne Hodges-Copple. Bishop Anne will join us for a virtual visitation this year, but the day will feature many of the familiar offerings during a bishop’s visit.

Fall at St. Peter’s

This is perhaps one of the strangest beginnings to a new program year in the history of our parish. Yet, unprecedented moments provide new opportunities!
