New This Week

Celebrate our first Saints of the Summer, St. Peter and St. Paul, Sunday Evening at 5:00 p.m. Saints in the Summer launches this Sunday, June 26. (Other dates are July 31, August 7, August 14, and August 21.) Our parish family will gather for Eucharist with a creative homily, prayers written just for this occasion, and special hymns, followed by a meal with fun activities to help us learn more about St. Peter's. Bring the whole household - wiggly kids are especially welcome! To help with meal planning, please RSVP here. Contact clergy or formation staff with questions.

Check out St. Peter's "God's Tapestry" Blog. Here you'll find reflections by our clergy and parishioners about difference and the Christian call to reconciliation - along racial and other lines. There are also curated resources to deepen our understanding of racism in our daily lives. The url is easy to remember:
