We are a small Episcopal Church on the banks of the Rappahannock in Port Royal, Virginia. We acknowledge that we gather on the traditional land of the first people of Port Royal, the Nandtaughtacund, who are still here, and we honor with gratitude the land itself and the life of the Rappahannock Tribe. Our mission statement is to do God’s Will in all that we do.

ECM Thanksgiving and Christmas Outreach, Due Nov 13

From Ken Pogue, ECM Chair.

“Each year the Episcopal Church Men help St Peter’s provide support to those in need during the holidays.  The men coordinate with the Caroline County Department of Social Services to provide families in the area with Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas gifts. 

 This year the Department of Social Services will be providing families with secure store specific grocery limited gift cards due to the ongoing pandemic.

 Ken Pogue says on behalf of the ECM,  “Your donations are greatly appreciated by the ECM and the recipients of the gifts, especially the children.  Thank you so very much in advance from a grateful community  for your love and your participation” in this worthy holiday project. 

 If you’d like to donate, please make a check to St Peter’s with ECM in the memo line.  For a Thanksgiving donation, please make your donation by November 13th.  Donations after the 13th will be used to assist families at Christmas. 

In 2021, $2,300 was donated  to Caroline County Social Services in November for Thanksgiving and Christmas, a figure  compares with $1,200 in 2020.
