After-School Tutoring: St. Peter’s partners with an after-school program associated with Nebinger Elementary School. Currently, several St. Peter’s parishioners are tutoring on Wednesday afternoons from 3:15-4:30 p.m. The children with whom we are working are eager learners, are very receptive to adult help, and are a whole lot of fun! The program is based at Courtyard (a predominantly African-American subsidized housing community), located near the intersection of 4th and Washington. We often carpool and would love for more parishioners to come tutor with us! Email Rev. Sean at [email protected] if you’d like to join us.
POWER (Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower & Rebuild): St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is a member of POWER, an interfaith organization committed to implementing systemic change for the betterment of Pennsylvania communities. POWER works to bring people together across the lines of race, faith, income level and neighborhood — lines which have historically kept Philadelphians divided. We are people of faith committed to the work of bringing about justice here and now, in our city and our region.
Episcopal Community Services: Episcopal Community Services is a Philadelphia-based social service agency that empowers vulnerable individuals and families by affirming human dignity and promoting social justice. St. Peter’s participates in several service projects each year with ECS, including a “Fill the Bus” backpack drive for students and a cleaning product collection for a women’s mission.
