COVID Restrictions Lifted:
Following the directives of the New York State Health Department, the Standing Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany has lifted all diocesan restrictions related to COVID-19, and encouraged parishes to begin gradually returning to normal worship routines.
This is a wonderful and encouraging development, for which we give thanks to God. In the interests of safety and health, especially for the most vulnerable among us, our return to normal worship, up until now, has been gradual. At this time there are no restrictions in the church, and the 10:30AM Sunday service has completely returned to normal.
We are so thankful to God to be able to move in this direction. Please continue to pray for an end to the pandemic, and for the health and safety of all.

Worshiping from Home
WEBCAST SERVICES: Every Sunday the Episcopal Diocese of Albany webcasts a Sunday Service of Holy Communion with Sermon. You can access this service and those going forward from the Diocese at https://albanyepiscopaldiocese.org/
Resources for Home Worship: The Episcopal Diocese wants to encourage you to worship from home while this health crisis unfolds and to do so they have complied a resource list for you. By no means does this list provide all available resources, but it does give you a number of options to guide you in your home worship. You may also reach out to your parish clergy for ideas and suggestions. These resources can be found on the Albany Diocese’s website at: https://albanyepiscopaldiocese.org/worship-resources-during-covid-19-pandemic/
Prayer Book and Bible at Home. Family Devotions are a great comfort. Our Tradition encourages the use of the Prayer Book and Bible in this way. The Service of Morning Prayer begins on page 41. You can also go online to hear a spoken Daily Office at:
Welcome to St. Peter's
St. Peter's is an active church with a rich history. With a faithful membership, St. Peter's seeks to worship God, to support the spiritual growth of all parishioners, to reach out to the surrounding community, and to preserve our unique Christian heritage for the benefit of future generations.
St. Peter's has served as an active center of worship for over 300 years. A member of the Diocese of Albany, St. Peter's existed before the formation of the Episcopal Church after the American Revolution. The current St. Peter's Church is the third structure in the parish's history, the first having been built in 1715.
Much of the life of the church takes place in the Guild House adjacent to the church, which houses the church offices, the Sunday school classrooms, the nursery, the choir room, the archives, a large auditorium with full kitchen, the Pumpelly Room parlor for receptions, and upper floor apartments.
