Dear members and friends of St Peter's, Hobart,
We continue to pray for and think of Bev Kaitinis and her family as they continue to grieve the loss of Tony. They are a warm and supportive family and so Bev is in good hands. Graham Family Funerals (73 Risdon Road, New Town) has a very large capacity and the family would welcome seeing familiar faces. The funeral is this Saturday, 27th of February, at midday. For any who may not know, the Kaitinis family owned and ran the Ice skating rink at Glenorchy and before that Tony and Bev had a grocery store in Glenorchy.
For those unable to attend, here is the link for Tony’s funeral. Graham Family funerals forwarded this message:
‘The stream will go live some time shortly before the commencement of the service at 12.00 noon, on Saturday, 27th February 2021. You are able to forward this link to anyone else who wishes to view the service’.
The link will also be on our website (later this evening).
Being the fourth Sunday, Kids4Christ will be on again this Sunday. They will leave during the first hymn so that all can be back to see Gina Semmler become a member as she is confirmed just before the general prayer (prayer of the Church). The children will be practising a short skit to present as a part of what should be an inspiring College service on Sunday 14th of March during which staff will be installed and the strategic plan launched. Lunch will follow.
Our annual AGM and election of officers will occur this Sunday, 28th of February following a short coffee break after the service.
Lenten blessings as we contemplate the denials, sacrifices and loving faithfulness of our Lord in which we also participate and though which he has secured for us our forgiveness, salvation and eternal glory.
His peace, the deep peace that the world cannot give nor money buy, be with you, as he is truly alive and really present with us.
Warm regards and blessings,
Pastor Mike Steicke.
Saint Peter's Lutheran Church, Hobart.
Dear members and friends of St Peter’s, Hobart.
We as a congregation extend our deepest sympathies to Bev and her children Janina, Annette, Milda, Michael and their families following the death of Tony late Sunday afternoon, 21st of February. Tony was a faithful member of St Peter’s who had an obvious love for his Lord. As we sympathise with Bev and the family we also rejoice in the triumphs of Christ through whom we also will rise triumphant and forgiven. As St John writes in the book of Revelation ‘Blessed are those who die in the Lord; they shall rest from their labours’. Blessed indeed, as the Church militant gives way to the Church triumphant, and our sufferings in this fallen world are transformed into eternal celebration and perfect joy!
Tony’s funeral will be held midday (12 noon) this Saturday, 27th of February at Graham Family Funerals, 73 Risdon Road, New Town. It will also be streamed. A link will be forwarded closer to the funeral.
Please also be advised that a Lenten interactive study will be held tomorrow evening, Wednesday 24th of February, 7.00pm at the St Peters Centre. It will be streamed as well and can be accessed here. We will be looking at chapter 12 of the book of Revelation. We encourage all to attend even if you have not been a part of these studies or, if not possible, to tune in and understand the richness of this book and how it should be properly interpreted (in contrast to so many uninformed and speculative approaches).
I leave you all in God’s good hands, the safest place to be, though our Lord’s are nail-pierced. This only further proves the point!
Warmest regards and blessings,
Saint Peter's Lutheran Church, Hobart.
