Peter Hopkins - Former RCS Music Director
It is with great sadness that we share the news that former RCS Music Director Peter Hopkins died suddenly this morning in Richmond Virginia. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Paula and daughter Hannah.
Peter followed the Lord’s calling as he served as Director of Music at St. Peter’s church in Philadelphia for over 10 years, during which time he was also the RCS Music Director from 2007 – 2014.
In 2014 Peter and Paula left Philadelphia for Richmond Virginia where he was the Director of Music at Saint Stephen’s Episcopal Church. Additional information will be posted as available.
A message from St Peter’s Church best summarizes how we all feel:
“May choirs of angels lead Peter into paradise. And may Peter find rest, with the saints, in that place where sorrow and pain are no more, neither sighing, but life everlasting”
