Any who would like to send cards or greetings are invited to do so by sending them in care of Christ Church, 12 Prospect Street, Babylon NY, 11702.

There will be another Parish Clean-up day on Saturday, November 7, from 9 - 11am. Please let Linda Ruhl know if you can help!

BSA Troop 43 held a food drive to benefit St. Peter's Food Pantry last week at Shoprite in Bay Shore. They will hold a Car Wash/Food Drive next Saturday, October 24 from 10:00am to 2:00pm at St. Peter's in the front parking lot. Suggested donation is $5 and a canned good item. At the end of the car wash they will present St. Peter's with the proceeds of the Food Drive.


Christmas is a lot closer than you might think, and two ministries in the Christmas-Gift

Diocese are already gearing up for the season! Knitters and Crocheters who will create items for the Seamen’s Church Institute’s “Christmas at Sea” program are asked to bring them to St. Peter’s no later than November 22, and Joan Derle will see that they are delivered to the Cathedral by December 2, the drop-off date. The SCI/CAS director requested the knitters to kindly add gift tags to their items this year to reduce time spent working at the center.  They can mail gift tags per request, or can use any gift tag. Also, those who participate in the Adopt-a-Family program for St. John’s Episcopal Hospital may check details online at
