Communion: Due to concerns raised by the National Church Office and the Federal Health Minister regarding COVID 19; we at St. Peter’s will receive communion in one kind only for the time being. (bread only). The Great Thanksgiving will include the blessing and consecration of both bread and wine; however, the congregation will only receive the consecrated bread. Just prior to distribution of the bread the priest will go into the Sacristy to wash his hands with soap and water. (Do not panic if the priest disappears for a few minutes after the Great Thanksgiving Prayer)
