From the rector

Dear people of St Peter’s,   Next week the season of Lent commences with Ash Wednesday, the 10:00 am service in the church building and the 6:30 pm Ecumenical Service at First Untied Methodist Church. Coventry Cross is hosting a Shrove Tuesday pancake supper the evening prior at 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm. If anyone can bring bacon, sausage, or juice, that would be lovely.   The first Sunday of Lent is March 1st. Sunday services open with the Penitential Order –…

It took the persistent efforts of a trio of parishioners to “bring it home.” Hallie Murphy secured the donation of the stone building blocks.

May we say ‘yes’ when called upon and ‘no’ when we must. May we give ourselves permission to check out when our spiritual tanks are empty and resources are depleted,…

Advent Musings

On a cold December Thursday, after Morning Prayer at Coventry Cross, The Rev. Elizabeth Tattersall showed me a felt banner called Our Advent Journey made by Deb Rogers-McCabe, one of her parishioners. The flames detach and can be added each week. I immediately ordered one and will use it next year in Sunday School. So clever! Then I realized the words are not the same as what we share each Sunday in Advent at the 10:00 service. So, I started…
