St. Peter’s offers pastoral care to those in need in a variety of ways. Our priests are happy to visit anyone at home or in the hospital. To make your need known or to receive pastoral assistance, please contact one of our priests.

The Pastoral Care Commission meets regularly to ensure that all who are in need are receiving visits and appropriate pastoral care. The Commission seeks to live out the St. Peter’s mission statement “to nurture people of all ages” by offering prayer, care, compassion, and support to our parishioners in their life journeys, according to their spiritual and physical needs. Such support happens in a variety of ways such as hospital and home visits, offering rides to parishioners, or providing meals in times of need. For more information, please contact pastoralcare@stpetersgv.org.

The Needlework Ministry is a gathering of parishioners and non-parishioners who meet  monthly on Saturday morning for fellowship, instruction, knitting and other needlework. Knitters primarily create prayer shawls and lap blankets as a tangible sign of St. Peter’s prayer for all. Knitters also make baptismal blankets, school scarves and chemo caps. All are welcome to attend and to stay for the luncheon following the meeting.  Many creations are displayed in the churches and can be shared by any Parishoner. For more information, please contact knitters@stpetersgv.org or visit our Facebook page.

The Parish Prayer List is updated weekly and printed as an insert in the Sunday service bulletin. It includes prayers for individuals who have requested prayer, as well as prayers for the state of the world and the Church. To submit a prayer request, please contact parishoffice@stpetersgv.org or use the form below.

Lay Eucharistic Visitors are sent forth from Sunday Eucharists with the Sacrament of Christ’s Body and Blood (the consecrated Bread and Wine from the Holy Eucharist) to those who are homebound and unable to attend church. We believe that “we who are many are one body, because we all share in one bread, one cup.” To arrange for a Eucharistic visit, whether by laity or clergy, please contact pastoralcare@stpetersgv.org.
