WELCOME TO SAINT PETER’S CHURCH ONLINE!
As long as the Corona-Virus crisis keeps us out of our sanctuary, we will continue to gather each Sunday morning at 10:00 am for a simple live-streamed liturgy on ZOOM followed immediately by a “virtual coffee hour.”
To attend the service live click SUNDAY AT ST. PETER’S. This takes you to a ZOOM webinar. It will “open” at 9:55 a.m.
If you missed last Sunday, you can view a recording of it here on our YouTube page: July 5, 2020
The service leaflet is viewable at the bottom of this page, or you can download a copy by clicking: Sunday Service Leaflet
Access the Holy Scriptures appointed for this Sunday by clicking the “Preparing for Sunday” button on the upper right of this page.
Coffee hour will begin immediately after the weekly service ends. Click COFFEE HOUR to attend.
A WORD ABOUT OFFERINGS: During this time we are still completely dependent upon one another’s generosity to keep St. Peter’s open and running. You may always send offerings via U.S. Mail. You can set up online bill-pay with your own bank and your bank will mail us a check. Finally, you can use the PayPal button on the upper right of this page to give by credit or debit card.
ON-LINE PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN AND TEENS continue. Please send an e-mail to Michelle Killin-Keith at email@example.com to get signed up.
Sundays after Pentecost
Click to find out about Sunday morning
Per Bishop Hollingsworth’s instructions, all worship services, non-essential meetings and gatherings are suspended indefinitely at Saint Peter’s Church.
At the present time, Saint Peter’s Childcare Center is still operating on normal hours.
The parish staff will maintain regular office hours from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm Monday-Friday. The Church building will be entirely closed on weekends.
Based upon the mandates of Governor DeWine and the State Health Department, Bishop Hollingsworth has issued guidance to all priests of the Diocese in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. He has given permission, but not required, that parishes and priests may suspend worship and any other activities, especially those with 100+ participants, for up to three weeks. In addition, the Bishop has mandated that communion only be shared in the species of bread. For the time being, only the priest will consume the consecrated wine.
At this time, there are only three confirmed cases of the virus in Cuyahoga County. It is therefore my call that we will function normally, as far as is possible within the parameters set above.
How we will proceed at St. Peter’s for the coming week:
All normal scheduled worship activities and meetings will take place.
Michelle will be contacting Sunday School families separately to poll them about how they wish to proceed on Sunday morning.
Evensong will take place on Sunday night
Normal office hours will be observed.
Vestry meeting will take place on Monday night
Bowling Club is suspended until further notice.
Wednesday Eucharist will take place, but not Bible Study
Lorna Jordan will be polling members re: St. Cecelia meeting on Wednesday.
I will make the call about 3/26-4/2 activities next Wednesday and send another e-mail.
If you are even a little sick, don’t come to church.
If you have been in proximity of someone who has been sick, don’t come to church.
Vigorously wash your hands in warm water and soap. Sing the ABC song as you do it, that’s the right amount of time.
Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your shirtsleeve. Never reuse a tissue or handkerchief. Wash hands after sneezing or coughing.
If you are age 75 or above, or if you have a chronic health condition, you’re probably wise to stay home.
The Rev. Keith Owen invites you to join the final pilgrimage he will lead to the Holy Land from April 28 – May 13, 2021. Fr. Keith is an experienced Holy Land traveler, and his partner in-country is Canon Iyad Qumri. Iyad is a Palestinian Anglican Christian, an honorary Canon of the Diocese of Los Angeles, and a beloved “cousin” to hundreds of past Holy Land pilgrims.
Registration opens on April 1, 2020. You can find comprehensive itinerary, information and application by clicking on the links below:
