Schedule for March 1, Ash Wednesday

Mass will be celebrated at 7am, 8:45am, 12:15pm, 6:30pm. Ashes will be distributed at all Masses. In addition, there will be a Liturgy of the Word at 11am, with distribution of ashes (no Holy Communion).

Ash Wednesday is an obligatory day of fasting and abstinence for Catholics.
In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. Fasting applies to Catholics from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken, but not to equal a full meal. Abstaining from meat is binding on all Catholics from age 14 onwards.

 

If you have been away from the Church for a while, know that St. Peter’s is always ready to welcome you home.  St. Peter’s is a warm community of faith and committed to helping anyone and everyone draw closer to Christ through the Catholic Church.  We hope that you will consider coming to Confession and Mass to begin your journey home, or think about contacting a priest to discuss whatever may be keeping you away.  We miss you and hope to see you soon!

Saturday morning Men's Group

Our Saturday morning men’s prayer group meets at 7:30am in the O'Sullivan Room (rectory, lower level entrance). It’s an opportunity to get to know one another better, to share reflections on the upcoming Sunday readings, and to pray together. There is no sign up, no need to come every Saturday, nothing to prepare for, and no “homework.” Join Father Gary for this early morning spiritual "pick me up."

Having your baby baptized? Let us help you!

The celebration of your baby's baptism is a wonderful time. Family and friends come together to share the joy of welcoming a new member into the family and the faith. Did you know the Catholic Church has certain requirements for being a godparent? Often "godparent" is confused with "guardian" - but their roles are quite different. One is responsible for a child's spiritual upbringing, the other for her or his physical well-being.
There are certain requirements in Canon Law to ensure that godparents are able and ready to take on the task of teaching the faith and providing prayers and support.
