What’s Happening at St. Peter’s
Women’s Club – We’re finally getting organized again! We’re going to have a Halloween party at Sue Ostrout’s home on Monday, October 26th (Tomorrow). This is not our usual day so we hope everyone can still make it. If you like, wear a costume and bring some ghoulish food. This should be fun! Sue’s address is 130 Jennifer Drive, Hebron. Call her at 860-228-0061 for more info or directions. Everyone is welcome and we always have fun! Come join us.
St. Peter’s Annual Fall Clean-up –Buildings and Grounds Committee has scheduled our Fall Clean-up for November 21st. We will meet at Phelps Hall at 8:00 a.m. for coffee and start work at 9:00. This will include the cleanup around the church, garden, parish hall and rectory. It is a great way to get together with fellow parishioners and work on beautifying the church grounds and have a few laughs. We also provide fuel for your efforts with coffee and donuts/bagels. Please come armed with your gloves, tarps, rakes. “Many hands make light work” so the more people come, the quicker it will go.
