Clergy Visits to the Sick

Please let one of our priests know if you are in the hospital or going to be in the hospital or are ill at home and would like a visit. Hunt+ and Kelly+ are available by appointment, at hpriest@stpeterssavannah.org and ksteele@stpeterssavannah.org.

Available Pastoral Care Conversation

 

Father Don Hands is available for confidential pastoral care conversations at St. Peter's, on Wednesday mornings from 9 - 11:45, in a Parish Office. These pastoral conversations are not psychotherapy or treatment but a means to offer some direction for those experiencing difficulties or problems in living. Usually a few meetings will suffice to provide a direction. 


Father Don Hands has provided pastoral care for over 40 years and has a certificate in Mental Health and Aging from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. 

 

If you want to speak with him, please email at drdonhands@gmail.com.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

 

Do you have a family member, friend or know of someone who is sick and would welcome a hand-crafted prayer shawl blessed by prayers of clergy and congregation during a Eucharist service? Please let the office know, at 912.598.7242.

Sending of Eucharistic Visitors

Did you know that there's a group of parishioners who regularly take communion to those in the congregation who are sick or otherwise unable to get to church? 

It's an important part of our pastoral care ministries and they're going on behalf of all of us. So let's send them with our prayers. Each Sunday, near the end of worship, we will send our Eucharistic Visitors out "bearing holy gifts for holy people."

St. Peter's Prayer Ministry: How to Ask for Prayers

this simple form

These form requests are received by both Shirley and Clergy.

The Flower Guild & Deliverers of Sunday Bouquets Work in Tandem

 

The altar flowers take on new life each week, after the 10 am service ends at St. Peter's. The Flower Guild member who has arranged the week's flowers works again in the sacristy, disassembling the arrangement. She then creates several smaller bundles of flowers and greens that are taken by dedicated members to other parishioners unable to join us for services. 

St. Peter's Greeting Card Ministry

 

The goal is for every parishioner to receive cards for birthdays and wedding anniversaries.  Other occasions may be honored as well such as sympathy, illness and 1st year anniversaries of a loved one's death. Contact Shirley Forssell if you'd like to be part of the ministry of sending cards:
