Sunday Services

We offer two worship services each Sunday. At 9:00 AM we meet at Christ Church in Cow Bay and at 10:30 AM we meet at St. Peter's in Eastern Passage. 

Seniors' Lunch

Seniors’ Lunch has restarted in the parish, on Fridays from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM. Lunch is $7/person, and is in the church hall. Please contact Mandy Raftus ( if you have any questions. Come and enjoy a lovely lunch and great conversation with a great group of people. Bring a friend along or meet some new ones! We’d love to see you all!!

Preteen Dance

St. Peter's has been happy to be able to bring back the Preteen Dance, hosted on the last Friday of the month. The music is loud as is the crowd, but a lot of good fun is being had. The dance goes from 7-9 PM, and is open to preteens ages 8-12. There is a covercharge of $5, as well as a canteen selling drinks and snacks. The next date for the dance is February 24th.

Donating to St. Peters

If you'd like to make a donation to the parish, we are set up to receive donations by e-transfer (! Simply include the following information in your e-transfer: Your full name and envelope number, or mailing address if you don't have an envelope number. In this way, you can receive a year-end tax receipt for your donation. This is a great way to make occasional or one-time donations. 

Parish Council

Parish Council currently meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month (with the exception of July & August) to discuss parish business. These 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 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.

Prayer Shawls

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. We have some patterns available (just ask!) if you would like some guidance, or there are tonnes of patterns available online. 

Sunday School

Our Sunday School has restarted for the fall, and is back in full swing! It begins at 10:15 AM, and runs during the service. If you haven't registered your child yet, it's not too late. Please reach out to Sunday School Superintendent Sandi Somerton for more information.


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 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.

If you'd like to submit anything for the February bulletin, the deadline to get it to the office is Monday January 3oth, 2023.

Letter from the Rector:
Dear friends in Christ,

It feels beyond strange to be writing my final Letter from the Rector for this parish. Five and a half years has gone by pretty quickly, in many ways (and seemed slow at times too, thanks to the pandemic!), but I think we've managed to do a lot of wonderful things together in that time. I will continue to treasure those memories, and to hold you all in my heart and my prayers as I move forward. I will be praying for you as you search for your next rector, and I'll be keeping my ear out for all the wonderful things you'll do together! 

Endings and goodbyes are never easy, no matter when they happen. We still have a few more weeks together, before Noah and I move on the 30th and 31st, and I'm trying to catch up with people as much as possible before that time. If you'd like to have a visit, please don't hesitate to let me know, and we'll try to arrange something. My final Sunday in the parish will be January 29th, and though I know it will be a challenging and emotional service, I look forward to the opportunities to worship together again.


Rev. Cate
