St. Peter’s Weekly News

June 8, 2016

Welcome St. Philip’s: St. Peter’s extends a special welcome to you and pray that you will find a warm home here. The Email News is a weekly email that is sent with announcements of upcoming parish events.  These announcements will also be in the Sunday leaflet.  Our homebound members receive a copy of the Sunday leaflet so they may stay up to date on church wide events. Information is also communicated through a bi-monthly newsletter that is sent via email and mailed to our members who are homebound or who do not have access to a computer.  Feel free to contact me with any questions, Patty McDonough, Parish Administrator, 215.887.1765.

While Emily’s Away: I will be on vacation from June 11-June 24. Deacon Pat will be on-call for all pastoral needs. You can reach her on her cell at 215-262-9335. The Rev. Phyllis Taylor will be serving as our priest for the two Sunday services and the Rev. Carl Metzgar will be serving as our priest for the Wednesday healing services during my absence.  Please offer them a warm welcome. Many thanks, Emily+

St. Peter’s Luau:  The Luau scheduled for Saturday, June 11th has been postponed until the fall.  We will announce the new date shortly.

St. Peter’s 9th Annual Golf Outing:  On June 12, we will be holding the 9th Annual St. Peter’s Golf Outing and all golfers are welcomed. It will be held at the Neshaminy Valley Golf Course located at 44 Almshouse Rd. Jamison, PA 18929. If you missed the last outing this is your opportunity to join members and guests for a day of golf and fun. The format will be a 4 person scramble so golfers of all experience levels are encouraged to come out and join us. There will be a pizza party celebrating the winners at the course following the round. There is a signup sheet in the church hall. The cost is $50 which includes golf, golf cart and pizza party.  Questions, contact Tim McDermott or Art Lorentz-Burnett.

New Parish Directory: In order to update the Parish Directory, please email Patty at with changes of address/phone/email information by July 1st.

With Gratitude and Joy: It has truly been an honor to serve St. Peter’s for the last 5 years.  For those of you that could not be there on Sunday, please take a minute to read my sermon and know the ways that you have impacted my life in so many ways!  I will be keeping my email active for the next few months and anyone is welcome to reach out!  Thank you again for your encouragement and support as I say my farewell to the community. Peace, Jess Miller.

Jess Miller’s Purse: There is still time to contribute to Jess’ purse. Please send your contributions to Patty in the church office. If you write a check, please make it out to St. Peter’s Church and write on the memo line Jess’ gift. We will be sending her one check at the end of the summer. Many thanks, Emily+
