The Friends of St. Peter's

About Us

Who are The Friends of St. Peter's ?

 

We are a growing group of resolute individuals who care and believe in the future of our church. We are proud to be part of the effort to save St. Peter’s.

 

We are not exclusive to our church or the congregation membership. We welcome all like-minded people to join with us in the project of ensuring the secure future of St. Peter’s. We acknowledge the support of  the people who have signed the petition to save the church. We hope that some of you will take the next step to become a “Friend of St. Peter’s.”

 

We further believe that with a proper Management Plan and committed leadership, St. Peter’s can be a part of our lives and the lives of future generations for years to come.  We believe that St. Peter’s facilities can once again become an accessible hub for both Estonian and local community activities in Toronto.

 

We are confident that the St. Peter’s community, once given an opportunity to assess all the issues, will show that it shares this vision of St. Peter’s future and will participate in it actively.  

 

Let us begin the transformation process together. We will use your input to help define our vision and our objectives. Please support us by e-mailing us to help fulfill our vision. Volunteer to help.  Email us at:  savepeetrikirik@gmail.com

“It is with gladness in our hearts, that here on foreign soil we have been able to establish our own congregation and church in our mother-tongue. Stretching toward the heavens, this building is not only a religious temple, but also a national building - where all which is familiar, holy and dear to us, we may teach and bequeath to our children."


 

"Rõõmustame südamest, et ka võõral pinnal oleme võinud rajada oma emakeelse koguduse ja kiriku. See taeva poole sirutav hoone pole mitte üksi usuline tempel, vaid ka rahvuslik koda - kus me tohime kõike, mis meile on omane, püha ja kallis, õpetada ja pärandada oma lastele."

Pastor Oskar Puhm 1958
