The Property Committee works together to maintain the upkeep of our beautiful facilities. They coordinate maintenance and repairs for the buildings and interact with contractors, getting estimates and monitoring the work. Members of the committee sometimes volunteer their own expertise to do jobs, or coordinate projects using volunteers from the congregation to help keep down costs of hiring outside contractors. They engage in planning to identify and evaluate projects to undertake not only yearly, but for years to come. Committee members take an interest in keeping St. Peter’s in good repair so that it is a welcoming place for all who enter.
St. Peter’s Garden Volunteers tend to the various gardens on the church grounds.They do everything from planning and planting to cleaning up in the fall and spring (and everything in between). Their love of gardening and God’s creation are gifts to behold and create beautiful spaces for our members and visitors to enjoy year round.
St. Peter’s has set aside a Memorial Courtyard dedicated to the glory of God as consecrated ground for the interment of cremated remains of deceased parishioners and their immediate families. On the south side of the church, this location provides a quiet resting place close to our prayers. If you wish to reserve space for you or your loved ones, please contact our Parish Administrator at the church office. Click here for the Agreement of Interment.
