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.

Summer Schedule: There will be one service at 9:30 a.m. followed by fellowship time from now through Labor Day weekend.

Property News: Tim Valera, our caretaker, will be on vacation from July 2 through July 9th.  Please contact the church office with any property concerns during this time.

Pledge Reminder: This is just a friendly reminder to please top off your monthly and weekly pledges before you go on vacation this summer.  Our expenses continue through the summer and we depend on the cash flow from your pledges to pay our bills.  If you have any questions regarding your pledge or would like to submit or adjust your pledge to St. Peter’s, please contact me at  Happy Summer!  – Timothy Voit, Accounting Warden

Thanksgiving in July: Lots of food drives happen in November around Thanksgiving time, but the need for supplemental food is a constant all year long. So during the month of July, we invite you to leave food items in the Narthex or in the Chapel Hallway in gratitude for our many blessings. The Social Concerns Team will take your donations to the Loaves and Fishes Food Cupboard in Jenkintown, which serves about 100 families each week. Needs include: canned goods (tuna, beans, stews, vegetables, non-sugary fruits and fruit juices, and soups); non-perishables (peanut butter, jelly, cereal, rice, pasta, macaroni & cheese); and clean, gently-used summer clothing for men, women, and children. The food cupboard does not take food after its expiration date. Thank you all for your generosity! Questions? Please contact Carol Boyle.

The Longest Day Fundraising Event for the Alzheimer’s Association:  the 3d Annual Puzzle Party will take place on Sunday, July 10th from 12 noon to 4 pm in the Library. This event is for all ages, so bring your friends.  We will all be together, relaxing, snacking, having fun & fellowship.  There will be a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the Parish Hall.  Questions?  Contact Angie Mason-Hogsten at 267-694-4760 for more details.
