We welcome all who are worshipping with us this Trinity Season. St Peter's is a specifically Prayer Book Parish theologically as well as liturgically. What this means is that traditional liturgy (services) are the worshipping expression of normative Anglican, (i.e., of the Anglican Communion) belief. We hope that you find your time in our midst spiritually refreshing and beneficial. We also pray that you might  find time in your busy life to return!

The last preparation meeting for the Banquet will be held Monday Oct 21 at 7 p.m. in the Parish hall.

Contributions towards the Silent Auction to be held at the 175th Banquet  need to be handed in to  Bob Matthews ASAP: speak to Bob or call: 470-3071
