Our Lego School is almost complete. Thanks to your generosity, as well as that of the many deputies and visitors present at last weekend's Diocesan Convention, the walls of our Lego school are now finished. All told, this project has raised $913.00 to pay the salaries of faculty at Redemption School, Haiti. Please plan on joining us in the near future for the ceremonial roofing of the school, which will take place within the next few weeks. Well done, good and faithful servants!

SEEKING A FEW GOOD MEN - FALLEN TREE CLEANUP DUTY - Help is needed please on Sunday, April 9th, after the 10:15 service. In the backyard of the Rectory, next door to St. Peter's Church, we have three (3) fallen trees. We need to get these trees cut up, and hauled to the street at Christophers Mill Road for the Township to do curbside pickup. As Vestry Chair for Property and Grounds, I would like to try to save money and not have to pay a service to perform this work. I also think that we realistically can perform this work ourselves with a few good men (and chainsaws and loppers). So please let me know if you can help. Youth can help also, as we will need to make a lot of trips from the backyard to the street, hauling branches and pushing wheelbarrows. Community service hours will be provided. Please contact me ASAP. John Colaianni, Vestry Chair - Property and Grounds

St. Peter's Spring Grounds Clean Up Day will be Sunday, April 2nd. Annual Spring Church Grounds Clean-Up. This year's pre-Easter grounds cleanup will be on Sunday, April 2nd, after the 10:15 service. In the event we are rained out, the rain date will be Sunday, April 9th.
Come to church in jeans and t-shirts and bring your rakes, shovels and wheelbarrows for a general clean-up of the church grounds and spreading some mulch. There will be an indoor cleanup project as well for those without a green thumb. We'll have lunch for all participants. This is also a great opportunity for young parishioners to meet community service requirements for school, scouts, honor societies, etc. John Colaianni, Vestry Chair - Property and Grounds.
