In the name of this congregation, we send you out bearing these holy gifts, that those to whom you go may share with us in the communion of Christ’s Body and Blood. We who are many are one body, because we all share one bread, one cup. Amen. –Eucharistic Prayer
St. Peter’s clergy and lay volunteers provide pastoral care to individual parishioners as needed in a variety of circumstances and at all ages and stages of life.
Eucharistic Visitors are trained by clergy and licensed by our bishop to administer the consecrated bread and wine to those who are unable to come to church. Visits typically take place in parishioners’ homes, hospital rooms or at hospice. Eucharistic Visitors are sent out by the congregation from church on Sunday mornings using the Eucharistic Prayer.
Clergy and lay people regularly visit parishioners known to have been admitted to area hospitals as inpatients.
St. Peter’s maintains a public prayer list, published in our bulletin.With permission, people may be added to the public by full name or first name only and will normally remain on the list for one month unless the request is renewed. Those on the military prayer list usually remain as long as they are on active duty.
