Second Sunday in Lent

"Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour."

St. Matthew 15:28


Unfortunately, Fr. Dennis did not make it to St. Peter's this past Sunday. He had car trouble on his way over and ended up with a tow to the repair shop just outside Bristol. We pray that his car repairs are minimal and that we see him again on Sunday, March 19!

Br. Scott and Matt stepped up at the last minute to lead our Morning Prayer Service. As Br. Scott had not prepared a sermon, he chose to speak about some of his classes at Nashotah House Seminary. Currently he is taking a New Testament class which covers Acts through Revelation. His talk focused on the letters from Paul to the Galatians and to the Thessalonians - comparing and contrasting both the congregations and the reasons Paul wrote to each church. Br. Scott also recommended the book "The Lost Letters of Pergamum: A Story From the New Testament World". This is a fictionalized account of correspondence between St. Luke and a Roman official. Amazon's description says "the author is a highly respected New Testament scholar who weaves reliable historical information into a fascinating story, offering a fresh, engaging, and creative way to learn about the New Testament world".

The entire service including Br. Scott's sermon can be found at the following link:

Thank you Br. Scott and Matt for leading a lovely service.


After services we enjoyed some light snacks downstairs. Ambrose particularly enjoyed Daddy's hair! Thank you to everyone who brought snacks!


Fr. Dennis will continue the Confirmation classes on Sunday, March 19 at 10 am. Everyone is invited to attend these classes! Thank you Fr. Dennis for these very informative lessons!

On the Sundays Fr. Dennis is not with us, Sue will lead a short Prayer Meeting downstairs starting at 10:30.


Please keep Rose Marie in your prayers as she recovers from her recent surgical procedure. She is home and expected to make a full recovery over the next few days. She sent this beautiful picture of the flowers sent to her by St. Peter's!

Oh merciful God, giver of life and health; Bless, we pray thee, thy

servant, Rose Marie, and those who administer to her of thy healing gifts; that she may be restored to health of body and of mind; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen


Our next Women's Bible Study meeting is at the church on Wednesday, March 8 at 11 am . Please remember to bring the book, your bible, and a lunch!


Sue continues to lead our weekly online prayer group on Discord every Thursday at 2 pm. Thank you so much Sue for taking the time each week to lead our prayers! If you have a special prayer request but cannot join us, please send your request to Sue. Please contact me if you would like to join us on Discord.


The Stations of The Cross

On Friday March 10 at 4 pm we are meeting at the church for The Stations of The Cross service.

The fourteen Stations of the Cross allow us to walk with Jesus Christ during His final day before the Crucifixion using fourteen scripture readings interspersed with prayer. Each station represents one event that happened along the way. We can join in with early Christian pilgrims in Jerusalem who walked the Via Dolorosa, which is the path walked by Jesus to Mount Calvary. Come join us in this ancient tradition remembering Christ's Passion.

After the service Daryl and Lynn are providing their authentic and delicious gumbo as part of a light dinner! Diane is bringing her wonderful homemade sour dough bread! Please join us for the beautiful service and dinner afterwards.


Sunday, March 19, is our next monthly pot luck luncheon! Please remember to bring a dish to share!


The Lenten Devotional created by our Deanery is now available at the following link:.

Our own Br. Scott is one of the contributors!


Bp. Jones sent out the following letter concerning this year's Lenten Appeal. Please consider supporting this generous and important program this Lent.
