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.
young people of St. Peter's get together for different events and
projects. Be sure to watch the Events section for upcoming events
