Prayer for St. Peter’s Church Music Ministries

The St. Cecilia Guild
The Steering Committee of The St. Cecilia Guild invites you to become a member for the 2022-2023 season. The Guild members, through their contributions, enable the Music Ministry to dream, to create, and to serve God, St. Peter’s Church and greater Delmarva through excellence in Music and Liturgy beyond what is possible through the general fund. (One might imagine the guild serving in the same capacity as a booster club does in a high school athletic department.)
Thank you to everyone who responded to our annual pledge. An excess of $21,000 was raised this year!
St. Peter's Choir School of the Eastern Shore
The Choir School is up and running and accepting new students. See what's happening by clicking the link below to the Choir School website.
Two choirs are better than one; and then they become one! St. Peter’s handbell choir has joining forces with the bell choir from Wicomico Presbyterian Church. Route 50 can’t stop these two groups from combining forces to play handbells to the glory of God. With a total of 15 ringers acting as regular ringers and substitutes at the ready, this combined choir is able to ring a full three octaves of handbells. From low to high, this choir’s music is sure to fill your ear with a full and enriching sound you have not heard in quite a while.
Please pray for the bell choir as they learn to capitalize on the strengths of both choirs to make a beautiful sound to glorify God in both churches.
