At St. Peter’s we believe that our relationship to God is an intentional, lifelong journey of growth and discovery. We value meaningful formation opportunities for people of all ages, and we seek to create safe spaces in which we can explore together the deep questions that faith encompasses. We offer multiple formation opportunities on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, as well as various programs throughout the week and special seasonal offerings.
Sunday Adult Formation
10:00 am Formation Hour
Women’s Spiritual Journeyers Class in the Large Parlor; for women of all ages who gather for lessons focused on a theme. The class is a safe place to share “theme connections,” to find and witness their own and their sisters’ spiritual voices, and to offer Christian love and support on their journeys as listeners and seekers.
Adult Bible Study in the Small Parlor. Each semester a book of the Bible is studied using the historical critical method. This class seeks to understand, interpret, and discuss Scripture in a cohesive and systematic way.
Choir Rehearsal in the Choir Room; a rehearsal in preparation for the 11:00 liturgy.
Rector’s Forums in the Parish Hall; opportunities to gather around a unifying theme and vision for our common life.
Coffee with the Rector in the Rector’s Office; occasional opportunities for newcomers to learn more about St. Peter’s through casual gatherings and conversations with the Rector, members of the Vestry, and members of the Newcomer’s Committee.
Wednesday Adult Formation
5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
A Service of Holy Eucharist and Healing in the Nave; a contemplative service with congregational music, readings from Scripture, a Healing Rite, and the Celebration of Holy Eucharist.
Connections in the Toner Room; young women intentionally seeking connection with other St. Peter’s women, prompted this fall by the study of ancient stories of women from Holy Scriptures.
6:30 pm to 7:30 pm
Dinner and Fellowship for everyone in the Parish Hall.
ECOM: The Episcopal Church at Ole Miss
ECOM is geared toward the University of Mississippi’s student community. Each Tuesday during the school year Canterbury meets at 12:30pm in Paris-Yates Chapel on campus for noonday prayer, and a celebration of the Holy Eucharist each Sunday at 5pm at St. Peter’s, followed by dinner.
