ALTAR SERVERS NEEDED
We are in need of Altar servers in every category: Lay Eucharistic Ministers (Chalice Bearers), Lectors (Readers), Ushers, and Acolytes. Please speak with Fr. Craig or Linda if you want to join one or more of these important ministries.
MUSICA DULCE CONCERT
Musica Dolce presents a Spring Chamber Music Concert at St. Peter’s on Sunday, March 3 at 4:00 p.m. Renown pianist and conductor is Paul Rosenbloom. General Admission is $20; Students $10. Tickets will be available at the door.
HARRY POTTER PANCAKE SUPPER
Be sure to put on your calendar the Harry Potter Pancake Supper: March 5 (also known as Shrove Tuesday). More details to follow.
Ash Wednesday is March 6, and we will have services at noon and at 7:00 p.m. For Christians around the world, this is one of the holiest services of the year, when we embark on the 40-day season of Lent and the journey of self-reflection and repentance that leads us to Easter. The imposition of ashes is a powerful symbol of our mortality, and a humbling reminder of our own eventual deaths. “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
ECUMENICAL LENTEN SERIES
The South County Church Women United is hosting services at many area churches on Wednesdays at Noon and will include a light lunch. All are invited to attend.
March 6 @ Wakefield Baptist – Rev. Clay Berry
236 Main Street
March 13 @ Kingston Congregational – Rev. Gary Bagley
2610 Kingstown Road, Kingston
March 20 @ Peace Dale Congreg. – Rev. Angela Sagasse

114 High Street, Wakefield
April 3 @ Christ United Methodist – Fr. Craig Swan

These are wonderful opportunities to meet and worship God with our neighbors and learn about their churches.
BAD WEATHER POLICY
In the case of future weekend storms, at 5:00 a.m. Fr. Craig will access the weather and if he feels the roads are too dangerous he will cancel services and post the announcement with the RI Broadcasters Assoc. as well as on Facebook and the Website. You will then see it on the local area news stations.
COFFEE HOUR VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
We are still in need of Coffee Hour Volunteers. Please email or call to let us know if we can add you to this ministry (email@example.com or 783-4623).
COMMUNITY MARKET IS IN NEED
The Community Market is looking for the following hard-to-get items: Cereal and meals in a can like Ravioli, Hash, Stews, Chunky Style Soups. And as always, any plastic bags that can be reused. Thank you!!!
ALTAR FLOWERS OR SANCTUARY LAMP
Please remember that there is a sign-up sheet (on the bulletin board across from the kitchen) to request dedicating altar flowers or the sanctuary lamp candle in memory or thanksgiving. Sign up early to get a particular Sunday of importance; maybe to remember a birthday or the anniversary of a loved one’s passing.
SHOP AT AMAZON & SUPPORT ST. PETER’S
When you shop at Amazon, don’t forget to shop via smile.amazon.com/ch/05-6010991, which will select St. Peter’s as your charity. You pay nothing extra and St. Peter’s will get a small percentage back from each purchase that will help support the Community Market.
DO YOU OR A FAMILY MEMBER NEED
A HOSPITAL OR HOME VISIT?
If you, or someone in your Rhode Island family, is ill or hospitalized and would like a visit from Fr. Craig or a Lay Eucharistic Visitor, please call the Church office. As much as we like to think we know everything, sometimes we need you to let us know. So please call us if you would like a hospital or home visit.
