A WELCOME from the RECTOR
Not long after my arrival at Grace & St. Peter’s, a longtime member of the parish remarked to me of his awe at the regenerative power of “this corner,” i.e., Park Avenue and Monument Street, where the church has stood since 1852. Having worshiped here for generations, he had witnessed the ups and downs of the city, the neighborhood, our parish, and our school. Through it all, in times of tribulation and in times of celebration, Grace & St. Peter’s has endured, and remained faithful to worshiping God in the beauty of holiness. These days, we are a uniquely diverse parish, rejoicing in our traditions while recognizing the need to look forward to the future God has prepared for us. Here, we pray in the timeless cadences of Cranmerian English, and offer the Mass with the best ceremonial we can muster, even as we are aware that God makes all things new – even us, transformed through our worship of him in this marvelous place. I hope you will have the opportunity to visit us here, and be transformed yourself. May God richly bless you.
