St. Peter's Groups and Ministries
The young people of St. Peter's get together for different events and projects. Be sure to watch the Events section for upcoming events
The Friendship group usually meets on the last Wednesday of each month at 10:30 am. All are welcome to come to these meetings. We meet for friendship, fellowship and learning opportunities and we share a light meal together. We have interesting guest speakers on a regular basis who will talk to us about a variety of topics; the theatre, outreach, fire-safety, cultural celebrations and many others. We also go on a few bus trips per year. Look under the Events section for a list of upcoming trips and events.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
far Rev. Vernal has been able to give out a number of prayer shawls to
our parishioners who are ill or bereaved and that is thanks to a few
ladies in the parish who have made them for us. Our supply is gone and
we would appreciate any persons who would like to help in this program.
They can be any pattern or colour and the size is approximately 24
inches wide and 48 inches long. Please contact Aileen Brown.
Please remember the food bank and boot box.
The Sunshine Group is responsible for many of our social events and for many of the decorations that adorn St. Peter's during special celebrations. We would welcome your participation!
Greeters and Sidespersons
The Greeters and Sidespeople set the tone when you first come to St. Peter's. They are there to welcome people into the church and to make sure that they have everything they need to worship and participate with ease. They are our frontline ministers!
The servers assist with services by setting up before the service and making sure that everything is ready; candles lit, hymn numbers presented and that all the elements are ready for communion. Then they assist by carrying the cross as we process and recess down the aisle. They help the priest prepare the altar for the Eucharist and they also help to lead the prayers. Servers are on duty for the 10:30 am Sunday service and for special services.
Members of the Guild clean and maintain the linens (altar
cloths, purificators, corporals and lavabo towels), vessels (chalices,
patens, cruets, ciboria and alms basins) and other objects used in the
worship of the church. They work hard to maintain the beauty of our worship life by shining the brass and arranging the flowers for Sunday. It is truly holy work and is imperative to the life of the church.
