Cathy Parsons Hired as St Peter's Parish Secretary

Father David announced at worship services this past Sunday that Cathy Parsons of Fruitland, MD has accepted the position of Parish Secretary at St. Peter’s.  Her first day will be this Monday, September 9.  Cathy will be working full-time Monday through Friday in the Parish Office.  This means that the Parish Office hours will be expanded to 9am to 4pm, Monday through Friday.
Cathy brings to the position more than 20 years of experience as a secretary, with 10 of them working in a church office.  Please be sure to welcome Cathy to St. Peter’s.

With this development, we are also saying goodbye to our part time Administrative Assistant, Madeline Moore, whose last day will be Thursday, September 12.  “I am grateful for Madeline’s work in the Parish Office,” said Fr. David.  “She has been of great assistance in supporting the financial work of the office and has provided a warm welcome on the phone and to visitors.  We wish her the best.”

New Worship Times this Sunday
This coming Sunday we will be back to our normal schedule of three services, but the times have changed.  The services will be as follows:

7:45am  Rite I Holy Eucharist
9:00am Rite II – Contemporary and traditional music
11:00 Rite II – Sung with traditional music

Sunday School Registration & More at the Ministry Fair Sept 8th

This Sunday, September 8 is the day to register for Sunday School and to check out all the various ministries, activities and events going on at St. Peter’s.  Be sure to plan to spend some extra time this Sunday morning in the Parish Hall at the Ministry Fair.  The fair will begin at 8:45am and conclude at 11:00am.  See the September Keynoter and the Parish Website for more information.

Seeking Nursery Attendant; Wish List for Nursery

St. Peter’s is immediately seeking a paid nursery attendant for Sunday mornings, 8:30am – 10:30am.  For a job description and how to apply, go to the Parish website at Job descriptions are also available from the Parish office and at the Ministry Fair.
The following “Wish List” items are needed for the nursery.  Contact the Parish Office or Megan Fenoglietto if you can contribute one of these items to our nursery:

  • Pack ‘n Play or crib
  • Pack ‘n Play or crib sheets
  • Changing table contour pad cover
  • Snacks

Projector needed

As part of the new Middle School / High School Program, there is a need for an additional projector that can be attached to a computer.  If you have an extra one, please consider donating it to this ministry.

Sign up for a Foyer Group

There has been a good response so far for the fall Foyer Groups, and there is still time for you to sign up. A Foyer Group is like a supper club for church members and is a great way to get to know other members of St. Peter’s in a relaxed setting with a simple meal. Eight people are assembled into a group (four couples or a combination of couples and singles). Once a month for four months, a different member of the group hosts a dinner at home for the other members of the group. The host provides a main dish and beverages with the others bringing an appetizer, a salad, a dessert, etc.

Groups will be contacted in late August with the intention of having a dinner in September, October, November, and December. We hope to continue with new groups in the spring. Sign up forms will be available in church. You can also sign up by sending your name(s), telephone number and email address to the Foyer Group Coordinator, Ann Allen, at


New Parish Prayer List September 8:  When we return to three services in the fall, we will also have a new Parish Prayer List.  Please let Father David or the Parish Office know if you would like names of individuals you have placed on the prayer list to remain there.  Thank you.
