Saint Peter's is a traditional Anglican parish -- not in communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury nor the Episcopal Church USA -- and uses the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and Anglican Missal in worship.
Saint Peter's is a parish in the Diocese of the Holy Cross (an independent Anglican diocese of evangelical and catholic parishes, affiliated with Forward in Faith - UK).
a Sacramental Church.
From the beginning Christianity has been a sacramental religion. Our Lord, Jesus Christ ordained two Sacraments for His people: Holy Baptism, by which men are made living members of His body and are grafted into His new eternal life; and Holy Communion, through which we are sustained by His grace as we endeavor to be faithful soldiers and servants in this world. Holy Baptism and Holy Eucharist are generally necessary for the grace of salvation for all. Five more Sacraments [Holy Confirmation, Confession, Holy Matrimony, Ordination and Holy Unction], are received according to one's state and need.
a Worshipping Church.
In corporate worship the congregation is made up of participants...not spectators. The service of worship is not unlike that mentioned by Luke in the Acts of Apostles. The building -- altar, vestments and furnishings -- proclaim the Lord in the beauty of holiness...our offering of our best to God, who transforms that offering into Himself; which He returns to us for our advancement toward salvation.
a parish of Spirit and Service.
Christians are to be the hands and feet of our Lord to continue his work on earth. We are members of the Body of Christ and must live our life for God through people. Although we expect that we can show simplicity in our Christian walk, we realize that laughter and happiness are gifts from God to be enjoyed as we share our faith. We teach that Christians are in the world but not of the world. We are not walled up in a holy cocoon but are here to love and serve God above all and foster the coming of his Kingdom, through prayer, through works, through evangelism, and through engagement with our secular society.
