Sunday, March 8, 6:00 – 7:00 pm: On International Women’s Day the Choir of Saint Peter’s joined by members of other local choirs will sing a service of Choral Evensong to celebrate the work of women in church music. The service, beginning at 6 pm, will consist of music by a variety of women composers, including the premiere of a new work written by Laura Nevitt for women’s voices. The service will feature Janet Wheeler’s Preces and Responses and Cecilia McDowall’s Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis (St. Alban’s), as well as hymns, psalm chants, and organ voluntaries by women composers.
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!

Prayer of the Week
O God, the strength of all who put their trust in you: Mercifully accept our prayers; and because in our weakness we can do nothing good without you, give us the help of your grace, that in keeping your commandments we may please you both in will and deed; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
