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.

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!
