St Peter’s Outreach

Chapel on the GreenChapel on the Green

Trinity Episcopal of New Haven, CT, hosts the outdoor Chapel on the Green every Sunday at 2pm. Regional churches sign up to help with the brief Eucharistic Service and to distribute approximately 200 bagged or hot lunches.

Thank you to everyone who served with St. Peter’s on November 20, 2016. With your help, we prepared and delivered a robust Thanksgiving meal to over 100 homeless and needy of New Haven. Our next opportunity to serve will be in March 2017. Contact the church office for more details.

A prayer: Loving God, whose hand is open to satisfy the needs of every living creature: Break down the barriers of ignorance, indifference, and greed, we pray, that the multitudes who hunger and long for shelter may share your bounty; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen.

Covenant to Care

The Covenant to Care – Adopt a Social Worker program allows St Peters to directly meet the needs of impoverished children in our community. We partner with a Department of Children and Families (DCF)  social worker, who distributes our gifts to the families in her case load. Opportunities to give throughout the year include Easter Baskets, Back to School Backpacks, Thanksgiving Meal Cards and Christmas Gifts.

Thank you to everyone who donated Thanksgiving Gift Cards for families in need. Through your generosity, we were able to help 15 families have a bountiful Thanksgiving meal.

We are now accepting Christmas Gift Donations for kids in need. We’ve received 28 children’s names, ages and interests from our Covenant to Care social worker. Please help make these kids’ holiday brighter by signing up to purchase a Christmas Gift. Gifts should be in the $20-25 range and need to be delivered wrapped to the church by Monday, December 19. Sign up sheets are in the church office, or sign up online by clicking here.

 

Help build a nursery school in MozambiqueSt Peter’s Partnership with Megumeto

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Monroe began a journey in 2013 to support our brothers and sisters in Mozambique. After just one year, we reached out in love to those on the other side of the world, helping them with the tools they needed and asked for: a building to educate their youngest, fresh clean water in the village, and protective mosquito nets for beds. In 2014, we raised funds to help the village of Megumeto build a nursery school to educate their kids, and with grant money helped the Megumeto community build a well for the village.

In 2015, we are supporting a communications proposal for Megumeto and its neighbors. Learn more about how you can contribute to this partnership…
