Sunday, December 1: Saint Peter’s is once again partnering with local organizations to provide gifts to those in need. Please take one or more tags from the tree and buy the gift written on each tag’s back. This year our gifts will be going to Casa Myrna and hTransition House. Both organizations are devoted to ending the cycle of domestic violence. Gifts are due by December 20, and please do not wrap gifts.
Sunday, December 1, 10:30 – 11:00 am: Children will be making Advent wreaths in the undercroft during the first part of the service. Greenery and candles will be provided. For those new to this tradition, an advent wreath is a small hoop of greenery that holds four candles representing the four Sundays of the Advent season. These candles are lit in succession on these Sundays as a reminder and witness that Christ, the Light of the World, is coming into the world.
