Your weekly update as to what's happening at St. Peter's Church.

Peter's Post

Feast of Christ the King
This Sunday is the last Sunday after Pentecost, also referred to as the Feast of Christ the King, which begins the last week of the Church Year.  Sunday, Dec. 1 begins the church’s new year in the Season of Advent.  This Sunday we will be celebrating the Kingship of our Lord and his reign over heaven and earth.  We are reminded of this truth at St. Peter’s every time we look at our Rose Window (the circular window in the back wall of our church) and see our Lord seated on his throne in heaven. 
Bishop Shand Announces his Resignation

The Rt. Rev. James “Bud” Shand, announced yesterday that he is resigning as Bishop of Easton, effective July 2014.  He is also calling on the Diocese to not immediately move toward electing his replacement, but to consider calling a Provisional Bishop for a period of one to two years as the Diocese considers  its future and possibly different models of an episcopate.  Further conversations on this are planned during the Diocesan Convention February 21 and 22.
The Bishop’s resignation letter may be found on the Diocesan website at:
This Sunday is Children’s Home Foundation Sunday

All around the Diocese parishes will be observing Children’s Home Foundation Sunday on November 24.  The Children’s Home Foundation (CHF) is an exciting program in our Diocese which offers scholarships and camperships to students here on the Eastern Shore.  It is a powerful and effective Episcopal outreach program which changes lives.  This Sunday morning at St. Peter’s we will hear a few words from a person who has benefitted from a CHF scholarship. 
One of the main sources of CHF funding is the annual appeal for gifts. Consider making a thanksgiving gift to the work of the Foundation.  CHF Donation envelopes will be provided  this Sunday.  Thank you for your generosity.  For more information, contact CHF board members and parishioners Lynne Peverley or Ann Allen.
Children’s Advent Calendar Making this Sunday

In place of Sunday School this Sunday, the children of the parish will be making Advent calendars to help them observe Advent and count down the days to the Christmas Feast.  This calendar making will take place in the Parish Hall between the 9am and 11am services.  Parents and other family members are invited and encouraged to help out.
Thanksgiving Eucharist on November 28

There will be a service of Holy Eucharist on Thanksgiving morning, November 28 at 10:00am.
