Saint Peter's is delighted
to have the opportunity to share with you in one of the most important
moments of your lives - your lifelong public commitment to each other.
The rector will guide and counsel you in preparation for your wedding or
union. If you would like to explore having your ceremony at Saint
Peter's, please email Rev. Robert C. Morris
or call him at 973-226-6500.
Saint Peter's Church is committed to celebrations
of the lives of those who have died. Saint Peter's will conduct funerals
and memorial services for anyone upon request. The deceased need not
have been a member of the parish. Saint Peter's also offers the internment
in our Garth - our memorial garden. Please call the parish office,
973-226-6500, for information.
As you think about the baptism of yourself
or your child, know that Saint Peter's is willing to help. Baptism
is a wonderful first step in deepening our awareness of the divine
presence. Baptism is all about our relationship to God and to others.
Please contact the parish office for information about arranging your
or your child's baptism.
Our Prayer Book tells us that Holy Baptism is especially appropriate
at the Easter Vigil, on the Day of Pentecost, on the Sunday after All
Saints' Day, and on the feast of the Baptism of our Lord. As far as
possible, therefore, we reserve Baptisms at 10am on Sundays for these
Baptisms can also be accommodated at the "Last Chance Mass," which is
held most Sundays at 5pm, from early September through late June. At
least thirty days' advance notice is required. We do not ordinarily
accommodate "private" Baptisms. Since Baptism is a sign of incorporation
into the Body of Christ, the Church, it follows that it is best celebrated
when the congregation is gathered for worship.
