T & M Fund

Formerly known as the Endowment and Memorial Fund, the T & M Fund was founded in 1865, just two years after the parish itself, to accept gifts from those who wish to make a special donation beyond pledging. Gifts are accepted in loving memory of, or in grateful thanksgiving for, a cherished loved one or event. Contributions are recognized and memorialized in the Book of Remembrance in the glass case at the back of the church and with cards to the person being honored (or their next of kin), and to the person making the contribution. Checks to the T & M Fund should be made out to “St. Peter’s Church”, with “T & M Fund” noted on the memo line.

 Gifts to T & M can be used for one of two purposes: for objects that relate to the worship of God and are used in the church for that purpose; and for scholarships for parish undergraduate or graduate students (see below).

For more information, call the parish office (978-922-3438), or speak with our rector, the Rev. Manny Faria.
