The 10:30AM service is a Holy Communion service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month and a Morning Prayer service on the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month. This Sunday, May 19th will be a Holy Communion Service. We hope you will join us for one of these services.

The full choir will be singing with this week's anthem: "Come, thou Holy Spirit, come" by Gerald Near, the Communion Motet: "Ave verum corpus" by William Byrd, and the C.H. Kitson Communion Mass in D. Sunday School will take place and Child Care will be available.

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.
