The ministry of Saint Peter’s is the ministry of all God’s people, lay and ordained. Our clergy and professional staff work to enable and empower parish members to do their ministries both within the parish, and more importantly, in the world outside of the church’s walls.

We are also part of the larger fellowships of the Diocese of Ohio and of the Episcopal Church, USA, which is a province of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Check out the links to learn about our “family” of 80 million people!

Lay Leadership

The heart and soul of Saint Peter’s consists of the baptized members of our Lakewood, Ohio parish. God uses our time, our talents, and our treasure to make the ministries of St. Peter’s happen. Every kind and size of gift and talent is critical to making the Reign of Christ visible in this faith community.

Our parish leadership consists of 12 parishioners who work together on our VESTRY.  These parishioners are elected by the general membership to oversee the workings and the “business” of the parish. They also work alongside the clergy and professional staff to discern God’s vision for our life together, and to provide spiritual leadership for the congregation and the wider Greater Cleveland area community.
