Dear parishioners and friends of Saint Peter’s, we have decided to cancel all church activities for now, to do our part to help halt the spread of the COVID-19 virus and protect our most vulnerable parishioners. We will be posting status updates and messages on our Facebook page. Please pray for all who are sick, for healthcare workers, and for each other in this time of trial and anxiety. If you need pastoral care or have other questions, please contact our Rector at email@example.com or at 617-547-7788.
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 alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Wednesday, May 20: We are happy to announce that on this day we will be celebrating the formal installation of the Rev. Derrick Muwina, Ph.D., as the Rector of Saint Peter’s Episcopal Church. The time will be announced closer to this date. All are invited to rejoice with us!
