Liturgy & Worship

Holy Eucharist (Mass) - Sunday 10:00 AM

St. Peter’s is rooted in our Sunday morning experience. Our Sunday gathering is the center of parish life. The primary form of worship in the Episcopal Church is Holy Eucharist and we believe in the “real presence” of Christ. Our parish vision is rooted in our Eucharistic faith. We believe in the “real presence” of Christ in the sacrament of Holy Eucharist.

Our Sunday celebration of Holy Eucharist is joyful and spirit-filled. Our music is upbeat, inspiring and contemporary (piano, guitars, drums) and all of our prayers use contemporary language. We strive to create an environment of energy and enthusiasm in which new people feel welcome and want to come back.

Many of our members were raised in other denominations and have now found a new spiritual home at St. Peter's. They often say that they feel called to be part of our community because they sense here a deep sense of openness, inclusion and hospitality. We are a “youth-friendly” church and children of all ages are welcome at worship.


Welcome! Congratulations on the birth of your child! It is such an exciting time. As you think about the baptism of your child, please know that we are here to support you and journey with you. St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is a community of radical welcome. We welcome you and your family to journey in faith with us! We want to help you in that process. The greatest gift you can give to your child is the gift of raising him/her in the faith. Our service of the Holy Eucharist is on Sundays at 10:00 AM.



St. Peter’s welcomes your interest in celebrating the Sacrament of Marriage in our church.  Marriage is a sacramental rite in which a couple makes a solemn and public commitment to each other before God.  Since Holy Matrimony is one of the sacraments in the Episcopal Church, the process of working with couples who are preparing for marriage is a journey of faith.

Currently, since we are not a “wedding venue,” we are only able to celebrate marriages for couples who are active members of our faith community and who worship with us on Sundays.  If you would like to be part of our parish community by registering as a committed member, we are very happy to help you in that process.

There are also some basic guidelines for marriage within the Episcopal Church: at least one of the partners must be a baptized Christian; the ceremony must be attested to by at least two witnesses; and the marriage must conform to the laws of the State and the canons of this Church.

The parish priest must be notified of your intended wedding date one year in advance.  Because the needs of individual couples vary, the time required for premarital counseling also varies, but will include a minimum of three sessions including meeting with a therapist and completing the FOCCUS survey, with both the bride and the groom present.   Couples must also meet with the clergy for pre-marital preparation.  Please contact the church office for more information.   In the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, clergy officiate at same-sex weddings.
