ST. PETER’S YOUTH VISIT BISHOP MARRAY AT CAMP WRIGHT
Four youth from St. Peter’s plus Father David and Deidre Nay drove up to Camp Wright last Thursday afternoon for a meeting with the Diocese’ Bishop Elect Santos Marray along with youth from throughout the Diocese. It was a nice, hot summer day, and the youth enjoyed swimming in the pool, having dinner and discussion with the Bishop, and participated in Compline, led by the Bishop, at the end of their visit. They also said hello to Nivek Johnson, St. Peter’s Youth Ministries Intern, who is working at the camp this summer. It was a great experience and a wonderful way for youth and our new Bishop to get acquainted.

ST. PETER’S SELLING HOT DOGS, HAMBURGERS AND ICE CREAM TREATS THIS FRIDAY

All proceeds benefit St. Peter’s. Come on out and support your church and steer others you know up St. Peter’s Street for food and drinks that benefit the parish.
AFRICAN TEAM MINISTRIES SALE CONTINUES THIS SUNDAY
We will continue the sale of African Team Ministries’ African crafts, jewelry, and soapstone for one more Sunday -- this Sunday, July 17 at coffee hour. A number of parishioners have asked that the sale be extended. Funds raised go to African Team Ministries mission work in East Africa. Items will be displayed on a table and the sale is self service. More information about the good work this organization does can be found on their website: www.africanteamministries.org. Stop by and see what’s for sale. Checks and credit cards accepted.
IRON FENCE INSTALLED ... BRICK WORK ON PARISH HOUSE
Earlier this week the iron fence was installed as part of the courtyard improvements. Take a look at it while you’re at 3rd Friday Downtown, or the next time you’re in church.
Over the next couple of weeks a mason will be doing some repair work on the Parish House wall on the courtyard side. It was discovered that during heavy storms water had been leaking into this wall and parts of the interior wall along the stairs leading up to second floor had to be removed. Once this repair is complete the interior wall can be replaced.
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL IS ONE MONTH AWAY – HAVE YOU SIGNED UP YET?
The Wicomico Episcopal Churches are coming together this summer to host a joint Vacation Bible School (V.B.S.) from Sunday, August 7 through Thursday, August 11 from 5pm to 8pm – the first three days will be hosted at St. Peter’s and the last two days will be hosted by St. Alban’s, Salisbury.
Registration forms and information are now available on the VBS page on our parish website: http://www.stpeterschurch.net/education/vacation-bible-school/. Registration forms are also available on the table by the parlor at coffee hour this Sunday, and from the Parish Office.

IT’S JULY – LET’S THINK OF SNOW!
On these hot July days, it’s not too early (and pretty cool right now!) to think of snow – and St. Peter’s is in need of a new snow plow contractor this winter who will come and plow our parking lot and clear our sidewalks, walkways and stairs when it snows. Do you have someone you could recommend? If so, please contact the Parish Office (410) 742-5118 or Mac Peverley. Thank you!
