Caring for One Another


One hallmark of a community of faith is that we are here for one another.  Take a look at the many ways St. Peter’s can help, and remember the words of Henri Nouwen: “Wherever there is real love for you, take it and be strengthened by it.”  We are here if you need us.


St. Peter's Cares

St. Peter's Cares is a ministry by parishioners for parishioners. Three pastoral ministry teams give their time and talents to help in times of need. To request care parishioners may call 314-993-2306 Ext. 125 or email

Meal Ministry

Some of the best cooks at St. Peter’s prepare and deliver meals for those in need because of illness or family situations, such as the birth of a child or the death of a loved one.  Any special dietary needs are easily accommodated. 

Prayer Ministry

A team of parishioners prays daily for the well-being of those who have requested their support. 


Pastoral Emergencies

To contact a member of the clergy during office hours, call the Church Office at 314-993-2306. Outside of office hours, call 314-993-2306 and press “2” for contact information.


Pastoral Visits / Holy Communion

Our Rector and assisting clergy consider caring for parishioners coping with illness, loss, and other spiritual challenges to be one of their most important responsibilities. Holy Communion may also be brought to you by the clergy. If you would like a member of the clergy to visit you at home or in the hospital, please contact the Church Office.

Prayer List

Prayer is at the heart of the Church. To add a name to the prayer list, please contact the Church Office. If you would like to add a name of another parishioner, we ask that you obtain the person’s permission before submitting his or her name. Those on the Prayer List are prayed for by name in worship on four consecutive Sundays, and then listed in the Sunday bulletin for ongoing prayers. You may also place a name of someone who has died on the Prayer List.
