Welcome to St. Peter's Anglican Church
- St. Peter's is a Christian community seeking to love God, grow in faith, and serve the world.
- 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.

The Gift of Prayer and Comfort
by Jean Masiowski
When I was diagnosed with metastatic kidney cancer in May, 2005, our long-time friend, Dave, decided to knit a prayer shawl for me. I knew nothing about this project until several months later when Dave invited Ernie and me to meet with himself, his wife Pat, and their granddaughter Brianna in the park. Sitting at a picnic table near the Duck Pond, Dave surprised me with the wonderful gift of the prayer shawl. I had never before heard of a prayer shawl and assumed it was a shawl I would wear when praying. Dave explained that prayer shawls are part of a ministry in which the knitter prays each time he/she knits. Many blessings and prayers were knit into it. Dave had never knit before, but had learned how in order to knit this shawl. Also, he enclosed a copy of information about prayer shawls and the ministry. What a beautiful gift!
In the months and years that followed, I was often feeling weak and ill with treatments, and spent many hours wrapped in this cozy shawl while I read, meditated, or prayed. The shawl still awaits me on the back of that chair, ready to surround me during times of retreat.

Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer Shawls are a tangible sign of our love and concern for one another. They are a comfort to someone who is going through a difficult time, whether that be illness, death of a loved one, or any other painful life challenge. They can also be offered as a sign of love from the community in times of celebration - marriage, birth of a child, going away to college.
If you would like to contribute your knitting or crocheting skills to this ministry, resources, including prayers before beginning and patterns, can be found at http://www.shawlministry.com/.
Completed shawls can be passed on to Shelagh in the office.
The Season after Pentecost
Also called Ordinary Time. It is through the regular worship of this season that we discover
the deeper meaning of the more dramatic seasons of the church year. It is during this season that we discern how we are called to live
according to Jesus’ life, death and teachings.
