Summer Postludes & Preludes

Do you play an instrument or sing? Have you been wracking your brain trying to figure out how to share your gifts with your friends at St. Peter’s?! This summer we are highlighting some of the musical gifts in the congregation and are looking for volunteers who would like to play a piece for the prelude and/or postlude of the Sunday 10am services. If you have questions about this or would like to sign up, please contact Mark Matterson (mmatterson@rogers.com).

Summer Pick-Up Choir

If you are curious about what it would be like to sing in one of St. Peter’s choirs, you are invited to get a taste of it this summer! All you need to do is meet in the church lounge at 9:30am on Sunday for rehearsal, and then you and others will sing in the 10am service. No robes, no commitment, no experience necessary – just music and fellowship this summer!

Prayer Corner Available

In-person congregants who wish additional, private prayer can meet with a prayer minister following the Sunday services. The Prayer Corner is located in the Bell Tower. Anointing with oil for healing will also be available at this time.

Worship Update

We recognize that COVID-19 continues to impact our lives and particularly some of the most vulnerable groups among us. You are encouraged to remember that how you participate in worship is your own choice, and your choices may look different from others in our community. However, we continue on this journey together, loving God and our neighbour in this holy time. If you have questions, please contact Rev. Roshni Jayawardena or Rev. Maria Nightingale.

Pandemic Precautions

Wearing masks indoors still is strongly recommended. If you feel ill, please attend an online service rather than in person. Thank you for serving God with your time and talent, and showing love for your neighbour by doing all you can to keep them healthy.

Serving Christ and Your Neighbour

Volunteers needed

We are grateful for all those who offer their time and talent throughout the church year. We need more people to volunteer in-person and online for our Sunday services and programs throughout the week. Consider your gifts and talents, and please get in touch with one of the clergy or the church office to discuss possibilities for service. Thank you!
Additional training and screening may be necessary depending on the work being done.

Lemonade on the Lawn

We are still looking for a few volunteers to serve lemonade and juice over the summer after the 10am service. We have openings on August 11, September 1, 8 and 15. Sign up on the bulletin board or call Nora Langan for more information.

A Note from Thom on the Monument Clean-up Project:

THANKS SO MUCH to all who have been coming out to help clean the headstones so far this year. There’s still a lot to be done to finish all monuments before the end of Summer / early Fall, so I plan to continue with Wednesday and Saturday morning sessions from 9 AM to 1 PM each day unless there’s a conflict with an interment.

If you can come out to help, please let me know (thom.wigle@stpeterserindale.ca) so I can have enough supplies on hand.

I hope to see many of you at an upcoming session in the churchyard … and as always, ANY AMOUNT OF TIME AND EFFORT you can offer is very much appreciated as we strive to hit the goal of cleaning ALL monuments before the snow flies.

Church School

We continue to look for teachers and helpers to build up this ministry.  Please speak to Rev. Roshni (rector@stpeterserindale.ca) or Linda Ghirardo (Churchschoolstpeterserindale@outlook.com) if interested. Training, support and curriculum are provided. As this ministry involves children, there is also a mandatory screening process involved.

The Deacon’s Cupboard Food Pantry is closed for the month of July.
It will reopen on Wednesday, August 7 at 9:00 am.

Please check Food Banks Mississauga for alternate locations to get food.

We serve postal codes: L5B, L5C, L5H, L5J, L5K, L5L 

We need your support. Our monthly expenditures are now greater than our monthly cash receipts. The increased expenditures are due to the rising cost of food and the increasing amount of food we need to buy. The number of people we are serving is increasing. 

Monetary donations would be most welcomed. Please consider writing a cheque out to St. Peter’s Erindale and include “Deacon’s Cupboard” on the memo line. Donations can also be sent as an e-transfer to giving@stpeterserindale.ca and put “Deacon’s Cupboard” in the comments section.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated.
