Bishop Hollingsworth led a grand opening celebration for the new parish hall of St. Peter’s, Lakewood on June 9. The project took 10 years to plan and execute, and included five years of participation in the Planting for Tomorrow campaign. The campaign, which included $350,000 for Bellwether Farm, raised more than $2.9 million. The total project cost was almost $4 million. The new parish hall allows the entire St. Peter’s physical plant to become completely accessible. The exterior features large amounts of glass so that the community can look into the church, and the church can look out to the community. The new building includes office, meeting, and gathering spaces; new daycare facilities; and a beautiful new chapel/multiuse space. The members of St. Peter’s are excited to imagine how to best utilize the new space as a community resource.
