Our Neighbours, Ourselves is an exploration into the lives and stories of those who have come to New Hampshire from around the world over the course of a six weeks (Wednesday Feb 26th - Saturday April 11th). Through art and creativity, we hope to highlight the experience of our immigrant brothers and sisters, to highlight the fact that immigration is not simply a “border” issue.
On February 4th, members of St. Peter’s will meet in the parking lot and car pool to Manchester, NH to partake in the NH Council of Churches bi-monthly Prayer Vigil for Immigrant Justice. We will leave St. Peter’s at 8:00a to allow time for getting lost, parking, and walking. The vigil is from 9 -10a. There is a desire from within the parish to become more involved in the immigration crisis in the state and this is one small step in that direction. Please join us. (If you would like to meet us There
St. Peter’s, along with other area congregations, is participating in a fund-raising event to help provide emergency food supplies to those most in need in the greater Manchester through “The Outreach Program” and the New Hampshire Food Bank.
