Open door


In the last year we were presented with an opportunity to purchase the house on the corner of 2nd and Mulberry. This has allowed us to update our plans for the Parish Hall and the Heart House. This decreases the overall cost for Phase II . We hope to enter in to Phase II in 2022. Click on the Open Door Campaign Logo to watch the Open Door Video for more thoughts and plans for Phase II. 

Capital Campaign Reception

The Capital Campaign Reception to celebrate Phase II of the Open Door Campaign was held at Camp Arrowhead on Saturday evening, February 3rd. This event was attended by 74 parishioners, many of whom arrived in a variety of Mardi Gras beads and masks. (For those who had forgotten, plenty of beads and masks were provided for the evening.)  In addition to an opportunity to socialize over light hors d’oeuvres and beverages, attendees could review display boards providing large size images of the internal and external designs of Hart House. These images are now posted in the Parish Hall for those who were not able to attend this event. Vestry members were on hand to answer questions on these displays.  
Comments were delivered by Father Jeffrey and Stuart Brahs thanking all who have contributed to the Open Door Campaign and providing an overview of the progress to date and projections for completion of Phase II.  Approximately 50% of St. Peter’s households have contributed to the campaign thus far.  A larger percentage of congregational support would allow us to approach outside foundations and groups for grants to assist with the completion of the full project.  Father Jeffrey offered a prayer for the continued ministry and mission of St. Peter’s in the community of Lewes.
The evening concluded with the cutting of a King Cake from the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany in New Iberia, Louisiana, which was donated by Jeanne Rogers.  Harvey Holthaus found the baby (figurine) in his piece of King Cake and received, as a prize, a painting of St. Peter’s (artist: Galbraith, 2009), which was donated by Andrea Monetti and Karen Petermann on behalf of the late Carolyn Fogerty.
