This is an exciting time - Easter at St. Peters. It is rare but here we are bringing the summer and the community back to life on the Seventh Sunday of Easter. Come and celebrate!


Alleluia, Christ is Risen

Christ is Risen indeed!




Week 1 at St. Pete’s!



You are invited to come and join us at

St. Peters by-the-Sea, Cape May Point this week.

We will have two services for the Seventh Sunday of Easter,

May 25 – 9 AM and 11 AM.

The 9 AM service is Holy Eucharist Rite II without music,

while the 11 AM service is Holy Eucharist Rite I with music.


Please come and enjoy the beauty of worshipping at St. Peters by-the-Sea!




We welcome Rev. Glenn Matis as the celebrant this week.

Come and wish Fr. Glenn a Happy Easter!

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances." ~Robert Flat




There is a spot at St. Peters for you.

Please come and celebrate with us!

Worship Assistants and others needed

We need people to sign up, volunteer, or otherwise make themselves known to be

ushers, readers, chalice bearers for both services on Sunday mornings (9 and 11)

People are needed to serve juice after the 11:00 service.

If you have an inclination to provide any of these services, we'd love to hear from you!




Come and join the Choir

Is this the year when the rejoicing inside you can come out with St. Peters Choir?

Sunday morning St. Peters has a choir to enhance the worship at the 11 AM service

If you like to sing, make yourself known to Beth Paulosky our organist and choir leader

And she will be glad to include you in the choir.

Rehearsal starts at 10 AM on Sundays

St. Augustine said those who sing pray twice!

Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.

~ St. John Paul II, Bishop of Rome



When you come to worship this week and every week…

  • Please bring
  • a canned good
  • or other nonperishable food item.

St. Peters supports the Cape May County Food Bank

It is hard to remember, when we are surrounded by such abundance,

that there are needs close to us in the community of Cape May County.

You will see the collection on the porch.

Please help.
