We have much joy in announcing that the Rev. Dr. Derrick Muwina has accepted our call to become our new Rector. Derrick has served as Vicar of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in West Newbury since 2014. Since his ordination to the priesthood in 2002, he has served as assistant, associate, and supply priest for several Anglican/Episcopal churches in his native Zambia and, since 2006, at parishes in Massachusetts. He has an MA in Theological Studies from the Episcopal Divinity School in 2008 and a Ph.D. from Boston University. He is married and has two children. Derrick will begin work on Monday August 5, and his first day to celebrate Eucharist will be August 11. Join us in welcoming Derrick and his family to our church!
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
The Reclaiming Jesus Statement
Saint Peter's endorses "Reclaiming Jesus, A Confession of Faith in a Time of Crisis," a statement endorsed by Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop and leader of the Episcopal Church USA, and other prominent religious leaders on Ash Wednesday, 2018.
Prayer of the Week
Almighty God, you have given your only Son to be for us a sacrifice for sin, and also an example of godly life: Give us grace to receive thankfully the fruits of his redeeming work, and to follow daily in the blessed steps of his most holy life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
During the summer we have one Sunday morning Service of Holy Eucharist at 10:00 am, and the church office is closed on Fridays. Our Wednesday Contemplative Eucharist and Adult Forum are also suspended for the summer.
