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!
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.
St. Peter's has partnered with Flocknote - a communications platform for parishioners to receive e-mails or text messages about church activities and needs. We won't bombard you, but we will send targeted reminders about upcoming events like the Holy Days, and parish and ministry needs as they arise.
