International Outreach Team (IOT) to meet Sunday, November 18, in the parish library. St. Peter's IOT is the group through which St. Peter's works for the welfare of those in need beyond the borders of our own country. We do so by working continually to strengthen St. Peter's companion relationship of prayer, presence, and financial support with Redemption School, Haiti; and by publicizing and encouraging your support of Episcopal Relief & Development's ministry in the world. Curious? Have a suggestion, opinion, or idea you'd like to share? Please join us at any of our meetings! (3rd Sunday of the month).

Volunteers Leaders needed for Advent Morning and Evening Prayer services. Beginning Monday, December 3, these half-hour services will be held in Moore Memorial Chapel every Monday-Friday at 9am and 7pm. Our volunteer leaders serve others by making these worship opportunities available and often speak of how much they value this quiet time of worship.
