Organ Dedication Concert October 18
St. Peter’s is dedicating our new organ on Friday, October 18 with an Organ Dedication Concert at 7pm in the church.  Fr. David will formally dedicate the organ, and then we’re in for a treat:  Nationally renowned organist John Walker, Minister of Music Emeritus at Brown Memorial Park Avenue Presbyterian Church in Baltimore, will put our organ through its paces with a concert featuring some great organ pieces.  A free will offering will be taken.  Plan to attend and invite friends and family and anyone who has an interest in organ music to come as well.  For a list of the music that John Walker will be playing go to
