Our Patronal Feast

On June 29 we celebrate the feast of the holy princes of the apostles, Saints Peter and Paul. Since our community is named for Saint Peter, it is our patronal feast. We were joined for the celebration of the feast by the monks of Mount Tabor, and hieromonks Theodore and Damian concelebrated with Father David. Following the Divine Liturgy there was a procession around the church, carrying the relics and icon of the saints. The procession stopped at all four sides of the church building for a gospel reading and the sprinkling with holy water of the church and congregation.
