Outdoor Worship is Coming to St. Peter's!

Outdoor Worship is Coming to St. Peter's!

Beginning on St. Peter’s Day – September 13th – in-person services of Holy Eucharist will return to St. Peter’s Church on Sundays at 8:00 a.m.  It’s 2020, so things will be a bit different.  Here’s the scoop!

To do our best to protect the parish from COVID-19, we will be worshipping outdoors, with everyone wearing masks and observing social distancing guidelines. This means that space will be limited, so we ask that everyone planning to attend make a reservation (this will also help us maintain a contact-tracing record). You may make a reservation online or by telephone.  Here’s how:

  • Fill out the short form at the bottom of this page. We will send you a confirmation email with guidelines on worshipping safely.
  • Call the church at 314-993-2306 and press 116 to leave a voicemail. Include your name, the number of people that will be attending, and a good number for us to contact you at.

The altar from Grace Chapel, the lectern from the Undercroft, the processional cross from the Chancel, and the gospel book from the Sanctuary will all travel to the front porch of the Church.  Everyone is invited to bring a lawn chair or blanket.  Social distancing markers will be set up on the circle drive and the front lawn to guide you in choosing where to sit.  (We will have a small number of chairs available for people who cannot bring their own.)  Ushers will be here to assist you.

In celebrating Holy Eucharist, out of an abundance of caution, the bread consumed by everyone except the presiding priest will be individually pre-packaged.  You will receive at your seat.

Everyone making a reservation will receive a response via email or phone with guidance to follow so that we may worship the Lord together, safely, with abundant thanks and praise.

It will be WONDERFUL to worship with you at the corner of Warson and Ladue!

Despite all precautions being taken, a risk of coronavirus infection continues to exist.  Everyone must evaluate their personal risk in deciding whether to worship virtually or in person. 

In making your decision, please remember that God hears us, wherever we pray.
