Bishop Shand to Visit St. Peter’s on Feast of All Saints Day
The Bishop of Easton, the Rt. Rev. James “Bud” Shand, will make a visitation to St. Peter’s on Friday, November 1 and will celebrate Holy Eucharist in the church at 7:00pm.  Bishop Shand had not been scheduled to visit St. Peter’s in 2013, but approached our Priest in Charge, Father David,m early in the summer about coming to St. Peter’s on one of the church’s principal feasts of the year, All Saints Day, November 1.  “It will indeed be an honor to have our Bishop, of all parishes in the Diocese, come to St. Peter’s to celebrate the Feast of All Saints,” said Father David. The Vestry yesterday evening decided to hold a parish dinner at 5:30pm before the service to bring the parish together and to welcome the Bishop to St. Peter’s.  The Fellowship and Hospitality Committee is organizing the dinner and will provide more details as they become available.  Please mark your calendars and plan to come to church on November 1 so we can give a good St. Peter’s welcome to our Bishop.
