Welcome to St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Central Square, Cambridge!
We're glad that you have found us. On these pages, we hope that you’ll find a brief introduction to our life that we share in common. We also hope that you might be inspired to come and visit us in person. Call our office at (617) 547-7788 for more information on any our ministries or services. Or, attend a Sunday morning service and find out more what we have to offer. All are welcome!
Our prayers go out to the loved ones who have been killed in the terrible tragedy at the Boston Marathon. May those who have died rest in peace. Our prayers also go out to all those injured with hope and prayers that they fully recover. Let us take time to pray for peace and an end to such tragic violence that continues to affect the lives of innocent people and all of us as well. May God be with those directly affected by the senseless bombings, Boston and the greater Boston area and for our world so much in need of healing and wholeness.
Afterworks 20th Anniversary Celebration
Saturday, May 18th
This year Afterworks will celebrate its 20th year! When it first opened in 1993, Afterworks had only one Director/teacher and four students. Since then, hundreds of children have been welcomed into the program, many of whom are now college graduates. To mark this important anniversary, you are invited to an evening of food, singing, and dancing, from 6pm - 8pm. We hope that you will join us to celebrate this important milestone of Afterworks, which is both an after school program & outreach ministry of St. Peter's. Please contact Vyonni de Mel at 617-661-8831 for more information and to purchase tickets.
Sunday, May 19th
On Sunday, we will celebrate one of the three main festivals of the Church Year, the Day of Pentecost. Jesus prepared his disciples for the coming of the Holy Spirit, and we celebrate that day with great fanfare every year in the Church. We refer to it as the 'Birthday of the Church.' We'll have special music including trumpet, the reading from the Acts of the Apostles in numerous languages and have a birthday cake as part of our Coffee Hour celebration. Tradition asks us to wear red as part of our day, as the liturgical color is red to represent the fire of the Holy Spirit. Please, plan to worship with your family of faith if you can.
