Saint Peter's Welcomes You!

Saint Peter's is a member of the Episcopal Church, part of the worldwide Anglican Communion. One of over 40 parishes in the Diocese of Rochester, we offer a traditional worship style while reaching out to meet people where they are in the modern world. Our mission is to restore all persons to unity with God and each other through Jesus Christ our Lord. We carry our our mission through prayer and worship, proclaiming the Gospel, and working for justice, peace, and love.

Worship We worship every Sunday at 10:30 AM in the Anglican tradition from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, gathering us into unity of prayer despite our many backgrounds and opinions. Rooted in the ancient rites of the Christian church and informed by great theologians and thinkers throughout our history, our worship style is one where Catholics, Protestants, Traditionalists, and Progressives can come together to offer praise and thanksgiving to God, and recharge their spiritual batteries for the coming week.

Activities Just as our worship helps us connect with and celebrate a loving God, our activities reflect our effort to both DISCOVER more about God and our world, and SERVE that world in gratitude for what God has done for us. Discipleship is a priority at St. Peter's, and to that end we host a weekly event, whether a course, lecture, or Bible study on most Wednesdays throughout the year. The gatherings begin at 6:30 p.m. with a potluck supper and usually conclude at about 8:00 p.m. We are pleased to host and support the monthly HOPE (Helping Other People Eat) Lunch on the last Saturday of each month, from 11:30 AM to 1 PM.

About Episcopalians As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and we believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the dignity of every person. The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, and traces its heritage to the beginnings of Christianity. Our liturgy retains ancient structure and traditions and is celebrated in many languages.

We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer. We affirm that committed relationships are lifelong and monogamous. Episcopalians also recognize that there is grace after divorce and do not deny the sacraments to those who have been divorced. We affirm that issues such as birth control are matters of personal informed conscience. We celebrate our unity in Christ while honoring our differences, always putting the work of love before uniformity of opinion. All are welcome to find a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.
