Women's spirituality group

Secondary Title

New “Women’s Spirituality Group” is forming at St. Peter's.
Come to a “meet and greet” in the Parish Hall on Sunday, September 25, between the 8 & 10 am services. Come and share your interest and your preference for daytime or evening meetings. Similar to the Men’s Spirituality group, this group will meet twice a month, beginning in October, to discuss relatively short books on spirituality that would appeal to women. We will begin with “The Book of Creation - an introduction to Celtic Christianity” by Philip Newell. Books will be chosen by the women and discussion facilitated by the Rev. Dr. Carol Flett. Thank you to St. Peter’s Daughters of the King chapter for their help and support in launching this ministry. The Daughters of the King will continue to meet separately, and they will be the founding members of the new Women’s Spirituality Group.

For questions, contact The Rev. Dr. Carol Flett.

 May 2022 UPDATE:

Due to an increased number of Covid cases around St. Peter's we strongly recommend that you wear a mask. Thank you for showing your love for one another by wearing a mask. I know some of you will be happy with this news and others will be distressed.  We are all tired of the pandemic and it has meant different things to us depending upon our individual health conditions.  As Christians, we are called to bear with one another and to do all things in love.  Please be patient and know that we are doing our best as we live through these challenges.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Rector.
