From the Rector
Dear people of St Peter’s,

I write from the Fransiscan retreat house in Washington D.C., at a retreat leader's conference with Marietta. We're with Jesuits & Fransiscans we know.

Don't forget the Northwest Mission District meeting this Saturday.

Blessings on all.

News Article: "Episcopalians balance fear with preparation in the wake of U.S. mass shootings"

Bits & Pieces of St. Peter's History
On the night of June 5, 1899, St. Peter's very fortunately escaped being destroyed by fire. It began in the wood shed at the back of the property and quickly destroyed the shed and caused damage to the back portion of the church building. A quick response by the fire companies saved the church. It appeared the fire had been set by someone and the Vestry offered a $100 reward for information that would lead to an arrest.
