St. Peter's Anglican Cemetery
The cemetery is now closed for burials until Victoria Day weekend 2022.
St. Peter's Anglican Cemetery is always open for visitation.
St. Peter's Cemetery continues to maintain the grounds; providing our regular perpetual care to the cemetery.
Please note that if you are having a memorial stone installed or repaired on a loved ones plot, you must notify the office of the work being done and before having someone work in the cemetery.
Parish Council meetings are open to any member of the congregation to attend, to keep up with what happens in our parish. Unless you are a member of the Parish Council, however, you would not have a vote. If you do attend, we would ask that you remain respectful and quiet during the meeting. If you would like to speak at the meeting, please approach a member of council, preferably the Parish Council Secretary Julie Bergeron, before the meeting to be added to the agenda. Minutes of the meetings will be made available online, and on paper by request from the office.
Parish Council is currently meeting electronically on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7pm, excluding July & August.
We have a prayer shawl ministry in the parish, and always welcome new shawls! For those who don't know, a prayer shawl is given to a person in need (physically, mentally, spiritually, etc) as a reminder that they are loved, and that they are being prayed for. Our goal is to have some available to give out, whenever needed. When shawls are available, you’re welcome to take them for someone you know who is in need. If you knit or crochet, you’re welcome to make shawls in any pattern/colour you see fit. Just remember that the intention of these is that they would be big enough for people to wrap around themselves, as a comfort. There are some patterns available at the back of the church if you would like some guidance, or there are tonnes of patterns available online. You also may notice that there are some shawls in progress at the back of the church, with a simple pattern. You are welcome to pick these up and work on them at any time. The more hands, the merrier! Please return them to the basket when you’re finished working on them.
Bottle Cap Collection
Bottle Cap Collection
You may have heard, but Eastern Passage is at the forefront of a new recycling project, recycling bottle caps! Matt’s Bottle Exchange is collecting
caps from “beverage containers, household cleaners, condiments, pills, milk containers – basically any cap that is approximately 2 inches or less in diameter. Give them a quick rinse if needed.” Keeping in line with the Season of Creation, if you’re unable to bring them to Matt’s yourself, we have a place set up where you can recycle them at the church! So save up your bottle caps from the landfill, and help with a small step in saving the planet.
With the COVID-19 outbreak, Sunday School is taking a break just like the rest of our programs and services. .
St. Peter's offers an e-bulletin by email. If you would like to receive a copy of our monthly bulletin by email, please email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to the list. If you are currently receiving an e-bulletin and are not interested in that, please let us know as well.
