About Us

Welcome to St. Peters Episcopal Church

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is a parish with a proud history in the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont Since 1834.

When arriving at St. Peter’s either by the front door or by the ramp, you will be greeted and then an usher will assist you to a seat. There are options if you require them – a Kiddie Corner, a wheelchair cut, a large print Prayer Book or a hearing amplified device. If you have any questions about the service just ask a person sitting near you and they will be happy to help you. Following the service there is coffee, juice and treats in the Parish Hall. The usher, greeter or the person next to you will show you the way.

St Peters placed a small but beautiful cross at Emily's memorial site. If it has found a new home where it is needed and appreciated we are happy. But if it was "exchanged" for something else please tell us where it is so we can bring it home. Wherever it is and whoever it touches we hope you are blessed by its presence . ... See MoreSee Less

Join us in vigil tonight at 6 pm

Come join and pray with us in a candlelight vigil tonight at 6 to stand with the family of the woman killed on the walk along the Walloomsac River yesterday.

People are meeting in the parking lot behind the Bank of Bennington on North St, and the vigil will happen along the river.

Let us pray:

God of life, source of hope,
the violence within our world, our communities, our families,
indeed our very selves,
destroys all that you have so lovingly made.

Make still our restless spirits.
Help us come to terms with our loss.
Bless the memory of the life lost yesterday in this place.

Stir within our hearts the spirit of peace, respect and reconciliation.

With your saving help, let us end violence as the ultimate sign of respect and tribute for each person who has had their life cut off prematurely.

Amen.
