Status of Calling a New Priest: The vestry wanted to take this opportunity to address rumors that are circulating about the status in calling a new priest for St. Peter's. As you are aware, the discernment committee and vestry have been working very hard in finalizing this process. We are getting close to making an announcement to the congregation, however, we must adhere to and follow all of the guidelines set forth by the Diocese of New Jersey. We can understand your anxiety as we have reached the 10-month mark since Fr. Don's retirement. We ask for your continued patience, trust and prayers over the next few weeks until we are able to make an announcement as to who will be the next priest for St. Peter's.

Support our shared ministry with Redemption School, Haiti, while enjoying a great meal with members and friends of St Peter's at Panera Bread at the Promenade (500 S.

Panera Bread will donate 20% of net Eat-In Sales when a customer orders at the counter and presents a paper flyer or shows the virtual flyer available on St. Peter's website or Facebook page.

S.O.A.R. - This month our small group will finish the year with a tour of Cross Keys one room school House. We will meet at the school at 11:30 AM on May 14th for the tour then head over to the Marlton Diner for lunch. Cross Keys School is located on Mill Street. From St. Peter's, go south at the traffic light and make the first left turn onto Mill Street. The school is on the right a short drive down. This property has been restored exactly as it was when it was a school. It has a teacher's desk, a pot-bellied stove, a chalk board, a large ceramic crock for drinking water, a clock, a flag, historical pictures, assorted memorabilia of the time period, and double wooden student desks with lids that lift to reveal a place for school supplies such as slates, chalk and books. This is not to be missed. This will be our last meeting for this year and hopefully meet again in September. I hope you all have a great summer.

Acolyte Training will be given after the 10:15 service on May 19th. This training is available for both new Acolytes and existing Acolytes. Any questions contact Jack Hobson at either or 609.504.0432.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the Rummage Sale through the week and on Saturday.
