Grocery shopping with a cash card? Try it, you'll like it! The International Outreach Team thanks those who faithfully support St. Peter's companionship with Redemption School by purchasing Acme or ShopRite cards, and invites the rest of you to take advantage of this easy way to shop and to support our work in Haiti. Both Acme and ShopRite cards are available in denominations of $20.00, $50.00, and $100.00. You pay nothing extra for the cards, which never expire and can be used to the last penny. Every $50.00 you spend on our cards covers the cost of two full days of school, uniform and books included, for a student at Redemption School.

Parish Cleanup Day will be Sunday, April 15, after the 1015 Eucharist. Please wear work clothes, bring gloves, loppers, chainsaws, wheelbarrow, and trucks to help clear branches. Lunch will be served. Please contact John Colaianni 609-792-4055 or to sign up. Thank you !

Your Vestry presently is focused on improving and fixing the LIGHTING at St. Peter's both INSIDE and OUTSIDE our buildings. Please become part of the team to beautify and improve our facilities!
Our Goal is to raise $12,500 for these projects. WE NEED YOU TO HELP LIGHT THE WAY!

We will be collecting offerings of thanks next weekend for the United Thank Offering. Take some time this week to count your blessings and show your gratitude next weekend remembering that all good things come from God. There will be special UTO envelopes provided in the bulletin. DID YOU KNOW?? UTO gave $100,000 in 1961 toward the construction of the Episcopal Church Center at 815 Second Avenue in New York? DID YOU KNOW?? In 2005 the UTO gave $10,693.92 to the ECW of St. Mary's in Burlington,NJ to install a kitchen hood and fire suppressant system to allow the soup kitchen to continue its work?
