Good People,
One of the most challenging pieces of the COVID puzzle for the church has been thinking through and executing a responsible, safe way to re-engage the many ministries we hold so dear. One of these is obviously our youth ministry. Your clergy and youth minister, Brent Benvenutti, recently gathered to have a conversation about returning to some form of in-person gathering for our 5th-12th grade folks. We have some creative ideas to share with them and their parents.

We would like to invite the youth of St. Mark’s, Redeemer, Trinity, and St. Peter’s-By-The-Sea to a service of Holy Eucharist at 5pm on Sunday, October 4th. We would love to have one parent from each family to join us as well. The bishop’s guidelines for in-person worship will be in place as we will be socially distant and wearing masks. Below is a link to let us know if you would like to be with us.
We’ll worship as well as discuss our plans and your ideas!
Big Love,

A few words from Father Patrick Sanders and Lent Arts sign-up form

Good People,
Over the nearly nine years that I have served as rector of St. Peter’s By The Sea, I have found the rhythm of worship in this place to be restorative and inspiring, calming and redemptive. It is not an understatement to say that it is a great help in my own life as I navigate all that it means to be a person of faith in the world we share. So, this Lenten season I have decided it would be a particular blessing to take a deep dive into this rhythm and look closely at the various ways in which we pray as a community here by the sea. We will look at Sunday worship, Compline, Healing, Baptism, and more. Each Sunday at 9:30 in the Parish Hall we’ll discuss the history of these prayers, what they have meant to others, and what they mean to us. I hope that you will take this opportunity to learn more and about the ways we pray! You might even find some ways to pray you’ve been missing!

This Sunday we will look at Holy Eucharist Rite One or, as some call it, the Early Service 
See y’all at church! Big Love!
Father Patrick
