"Thanksgiving is the language of heaven,

and we had better start to learn it

if we are not to be

mere voiceless aliens there."

~ A. J. Gossip,




Week 18 at St. Pete’s! 



You are invited to come and join us at

St. Peters by-the-Sea, Cape May Point this week.

We will have two services for the Nineteenth Sunday of Pentecost,

September 25 – 9 AM and 11 AM.

The 9 AM service is Holy Eucharist Rite II without music,

while the 11 AM service is Holy Eucharist Rite I with music.


 Please come and enjoy the beauty of worshipping at St. Peters by-the-Sea!  

(Last chance this year!)




We welcome Rev. Jennie Anderson as the celebrant this week.

And we give thanks for Rev. Robert Coniglio and his ministry among us.


"The private and personal blessings we enjoy – the blessings of immunity, safeguard, liberty and integrity – deserve the thanksgiving of a whole life."

~ Jeremy Taylor




 There is a spot at St. Peters for you. 

Please come and celebrate with us!


Worship Assistants and others needed

We need people to sign up, volunteer, or otherwise make themselves known to be

ushers, readers, chalice bearers for both services on Sunday mornings (9 and 11)

People are needed to serve juice after the 11:00 service. 

If you have an inclination to provide any of these services, we'd love to hear from you! 






Come and join the Choir

Is this the year when the rejoicing inside you can come out with St. Peters Choir?

Sunday morning St. Peters has a choir to enhance the worship at the 11 AM service

If you like to sing, make yourself known to Beth Paulosky our organist and choir leader

And she will be glad to include you in the choir.

Rehearsal starts at 10 AM on Sundays


St. Augustine said those who sing pray twice! 

"If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice. 

~ Meister Eckhart, German theologian




When you come to worship this week and every week…

  • Please bring
  • a canned good
  • or other nonperishable food item. 

St. Peters supports the Cape May County Food Bank

It is hard to remember, when we are surrounded by such abundance,

that there are needs close to us in the community of Cape May County

You will see the collection on the porch.

Please help.

Love was My Meaning

By Julian of Norwich in Revelation of Divine Love 


"From the time

these things were first revealed

I had often wanted to know

what was our Lord's meaning. 

It was more than fifteen years

after that I was answered

in my spirit's understanding.

"You would know

our Lord's meaning in this thing? 

Know it well. 

Love was his meaning. 

Who showed it to you?


What did he show you?


Why did he show it? 

For Love.

Hold on to this

and you will know

and understand love more and more. 

But you will not know

or learn anything else --- ever!'


So it was that I learned

that love was our Lord's meaning.

And I saw for certain,

both here and elsewhere,

that before ever he made us,

God loves us;

and that his love has never slackened,

nor ever shall. 

In this love all his works have been done,

and in this love

he has made everything serve us;

and in this love our life is everlasting. Our beginning was when we were made,

but the love in which

he made us never had beginning.

In it we have our beginning.

All this we shall see in God for ever.

May Jesus grant this.



Julian of Norwich. "Love was my meaning" In Revelations of Divine Love as printed in From The Fathers to the Churches, 560-561. San Francisco: Collins, 1983
