The consultation with Fr. Doc is concluded. Your Vestry is making good headway on the Rector search. They have made the courageous decision to seek the full-time clergy leadership of someone who will live in Niagara Falls, with an intentional focus on missional ministry to our neighbors here in the city.
The Rev. Cathy Dempsy-Sims from the Diocesan Office blesses 150 walkers provided to Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center by St. Peter's from the Guillemont Trust. These walkers will ensure safe ambulation for the hospitals cardiac, post-surgery, stroke, and elderly patients.

The location changed from the upstairs to the basement, but Diocesan Council has approved a $10,000 grant submitted by St. Peter's and The YWCA of the Niagara Frontier toward remodel St. Peter's downstairs kitchen for a YWCA Work Training Program. Construction should start immediately. The program should be up and running before the next tourist season. We thank Deacon Pat and David Mallam for their vision and tenacity.
