St. Peter’s is deeply saddened to announce the passing of long time faithful parishioner Hellen Terry on Tuesday, August 2. She always dressed up when she came to the Holy Eucharist, and she always said hello to the children in the Sunday School. She loved God and she loved the Anglican/Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. She loved St. Peter’s. Her son Abel served on the altar as acolyte to Bishop Morse. We shall miss her. A Requiem Mass was offered for her at St. Peter’s at 11 a.m. Friday, August 12.

May the souls of all the faithful departed Rest in Peace, and may Light Perpetual shine upon them.


We are sad to announce the passing of our dear Deacon DeCoss on Pentecost Sunday. May his soul rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon him. Please pray for his family, especially Cathy and Debra. A Requiem Mass was offered Saturday, May 21, at 10 a.m. at St. Peter’s. To read a short biography: Deacon Donald DeCoss

The Rev. Donald DeCoss, Deacon Emeritus

“Deacon Don was a caring Christian soldier. One of the Greatest Generation who wore his military uniform on days of remembrance, he appreciated our liberties and freedoms, yet he understood free will and the responsibility of choice. He was not afraid of standing up for the truth, whether it be in matters of church or public square. His gentle soul belied an inner strength and firmness of purpose. He loved us and we loved him – all of us at St. Peter’s Anglican Church in Oakland. He had a wonderful sense of humor and a twinkle in his eye. We shall look for him when we gather by the river that runs by the throne of God.”          Christine Sunderland, parishioner

“A good man, a great friend, a fine husband and father, an Episcopal Deacon who kept the faith; he will be much missed. Rest in Peace, good and faithful servant.”         The Rev. Michael E. Mautner+ Rector
