Welcome to St. Peter's Anglican Church
- We are a people seeking to know, love, and follow Jesus in serving God's mission.
- We invite you to join us.
The Parish of St. Peter is a Christian faith community in the Anglican tradition located in beautiful Winnipeg, Manitoba.
St. Peter's is committed to establishing relationships - with God and with one another. We believe that relationships are critical in our high-tech/low-touch world and we want to create an environment in which everyone has the opportunity for a life-changing relationship with God.
Daily Bible Readings
Have you ever wondered how to make Bible reading a part of your daily life? There are many ways to do this but one resource for Anglicans is the Daily Office Lectionary beginning on page 450 of the Book of Alternative Services (B.A.S). This resource offers daily Bible readings on a two year cycle.
Of course, not everyone has a B.A.S. at home so, for the convenience of our readers, St. Peter's is pleased to connect you with Forward Movement Daily Reading which provides readings for each day based on the Lectionary.
Fall 2014 at St. Peter's
All Hallows' Eve (Hallowe'en)
The evening before the Feast of All Saints - Beginning in the 4th century, the Christian church began to make inroads into ancient celtic practices rooted in fear of the spirits of the dead. Christian understandings of death were radically different - the dead were not to be feared but rather remembered, prayed for, and even celebrated as saints. Over time, although many of the old practices remained, they were slowly transformed from being fear-driven to being celebratory.
Our doors will be open to trick-or-treaters from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on October 31. Come share the fun and the goodies and learn a bit more about how Christians celebrate the lives of All Saints.

Everything changes radically from the moment you know yourself as being sent into this world. . . The change of which I speak is the change from living life as a painful test to prove that you deserve to be loved, to living it as an unceasing "Yes" to the truth of that Belovedness. Put simply, life is a God-given opportunity to become who we are, to affirm our own true spiritual nature, claim our truth, appropriate and integrate the reality of our being, but, most of all, to say "Yes" to the One who calls us the Beloved.
- This Month's Discipleship quotes taken from:
- Life of the Beloved

Season After Pentecost
Also called Ordinary Time
“Clearly the human-divine relationship in the Trinity, the unifying force of the Eucharist, the mercy of God, and the lordship of Jesus bring all the scriptures of Ordinary Time to life. These feasts, born of popular devotion and theological thought, make Ordinary Time a time for making the faith the force of daily life.”
Joan Chittister, ‘The Liturgical Year’
