Welcome to Saint Peter’s!
Saint Peter’s has been a place of ministry and mercy in the heart of Central Square for 175 years, and God willing, we have only just begun! We are committed to following the way of Jesus, a journey that sustains us amid the changes and chances of life.
We invite you to join us on a Sunday morning for lively worship with sermon and music, on a Wednesday evening for a contemplative service and our Adult Forum, on a Saturday afternoon as we feed our hungry neighbors, or perhaps at a concert or other event in our sanctuary. If what you read here speaks to you, then come and see!
Scenes from Our Church Life
Wednesday, January 17, 7:15 – 8:15 pm: Marta Rivera will lead a discussion of the many varieties of contemplative prayer, from the ancient prayer forms of the Desert Mothers and Fathers to modern forms. Come at 6:30 to share in a simple dinner. Ring the doorbell at the 15 Sellers St. entrance of the church, and someone will let you in. Note that the start time has changed from 7:30 to 7:15.
Sunday, January 28, 11:00 am: The 2018 Annual Meeting of Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church will convene in the undercroft, following a lunch. There will be only one service on this day, at 10:00 am. At the meeting we will receive new members, hear reports from the church’s ministries, elect Vestry members and delegates to the Diocesan Convention and the Deanery Assembly, and review the budget approved by the Vestry.
Prayer of the Week
Almighty God, whose Son our Savior Jesus Christ is the light of the world: Grant that your people, illumined by your Word and Sacraments, may shine with the radiance of Christ's glory, that he may be known, worshiped, and obeyed to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, now and forever. Amen.
