EPISCOPALIANS TOGETHER IN OXFORD (ETO)
The purpose of ETO is to bring St. Peter’s and Christ Church, Quaker Farms together in activities and events which can (1) raise the profile of the Episcopal Church in Oxford, and (2) serve our community. This summer, we have enjoyed:
•2 joint services, one at each church
Our next event will be:
The Blessing of the Animals – Sunday, October 5, 4:00 p.m. at Christ Church
Bring your cat, dog, bird, fish, bunny, horse, donkey, or any other animals you love (live or stuffed) for a fun time of worship and fellowship. Every animal will get a special blessing from the clergy, and refreshments for all species will be served. St. Peter’s is again providing refreshments. If you would like to help with this truly special event, speak to Rev. Ellen.
Sunday School will start Sunday September 14, 2014 at 9:15 a.m. All children ages 3-12 are welcome.
250th Anniversary Events Continue...
See our "250th Anniversary" page for more details on our final two events.
All Saints Sunday – November 2
This is the day in the church year when we remember all our loved ones who have gone to be with the Lord. There will be a signup sheet in the church in October for you to list your loved ones whom you would like named at the altar.
Stewardship Season is coming in November
Fall is that time of the year when we ask everyone who calls St. Peter’s their spiritual home to make a pledge to financially support the church in the year to come. It is only when we know how much income we can expect that the Vestry can make a responsible annual budget. Pledge Sunday is Nov. 23. Please let your pledge reflect how important your church is to you!
