— Parish Notices —

This Sunday is the “rescheduled” Scout Sunday, having been snowed out in February, and we are pleased to welcome the boys and girls of BSA Troop 43 and their families to the 10am service this morning. At the time of the announcements, Giovann Guillette will receive his Eagle Patch. This is usually done during an Eagle Scout Ceremony, but those are restricted due to the pandemic. Gio’s project entailed building a chicken run at The Lewis Oliver Farm Sanctuary in Northport. Congratulations, Gio!

Bible Study Continues: Tuesdays at 10:30am in the Lounge and Sundays at 9am in the Lounge. Bring your bible and a mask! All are invited.

We just had a new telephone system installed in the offices, and extension numbers have changed. If you call into the office to leave a message, please listen to the greeting for the correct extension numbers.

Our next clean-up day will be next Saturday, March 13! All are invited to help . . .


Our project of recording the Daily Office and other services and portions of the Book of Common Prayer is in progress. The audio files are now available online on our Soundcloud Channel “St. Peter’s Bay Shore”, or on CD as requested. Of particular interest might be "The Daily Office for Early Lent", "The Order for Compline", and "4 Psalms of Comfort and Hope" Please contact Mark Engelhardt if you would like CDs cut for you.

Our two long-standing AA groups continue to meet on Monday and Friday evenings. We also have meetings for Al-Anon on Friday mornings at 10am and Sunday evenings at 7pm, and a support group for heroin addiction, meeting on Sunday evenings. Please contact Megan via the hotline: 631-210-6297 or if interested in joining the HA group.


Welcome To St. Peter’s!


Diocesan and state health guidelines prevail. Please observe the procedures listed below, and as always, thank you for observing these protocols, which is an expression of your care for everyone in the Parish family.



¨ Only the Host (Bread) will be distributed; not wine

¨ Please approach the Altar in SINGLE FILE from the Center aisle only, not the side aisles

¨ Observe Social Distancing in the aisle by using the pew markers for vacant pews

¨ Communicants should sanitize their hands before receiving the host. You may use your own, or a bottle is placed at the head of the aisle

¨ The Host will be placed in the palm of each Communicant, not on the tongue

¨ Please return to your seat, by way of the side aisles

¨ Remove your mask to take the Host, then replace the mask for the remainder of the service


Please also remember, per the mandates of the State of New York and

The Episcopal Diocese of Long Island:

  • Face Masks are required to be worn by all in attendance at all times. (We have a supply on hand, if you forgot yours.)
  • Physical Distancing of 6 feet must be maintained at all times, and pews are marked for that purpose.
  • Check in upon arrival, and if your name is not in the data base, please provide your NAME, E-MAIL ADDRESS, AND TELEPHONE NUMBER for Contact Tracing.

  • One-time use paper bulletins are provided, and must be taken away by the user. Please be sure to take yours with you, and don’t leave it behind in the pew or in the Narthex.
  • Please place your offering in one of the Offering Plates near the Altar before the service begins. If you came in late, please place it in the plate immediately following the service.

Until further notice, all Day-by-Day booklets and sign-up sheets will be kept in the office. To pick up a tract, or sign up for anything, including memorial flowers, please ask Mark or Brian, or on Sundays, an usher.




Parish Office is open Monday through Friday 9:30 am until 2 pm.


A warm welcome will greet you at St. Peter's!
