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!

Presenting the Gifts at Mass

Did you know that the practice of parishioners presenting the bread and wine to the priest dates back to the fifth century? St. Augustine wrote of this tradition. “Lord, receive our gifts in this wonderful exchange: from all you have given us we bring you these gifts, and in return you give us yourself.”

We would like more people to have a chance to participate in this tradition. If you would like to present the gifts at Mass, please take a moment to sign up on the poster in the back of the church. We welcome three or four people each Mass to sign up, you can sign up with a friend, your spouse, your family or the person who sits in the same pew! At your selected Mass, after the Profession of Faith (Creed), meet the ushers in the back of the church and they will instruct you.

Call for Volunteers! Capital Campaign Project Committee

A parish committee made up of representative members will soon form to inform the selection and design of the next capital campaign project (social hall / church).  This committee will meet over some months to help choose an architect, identify needs and objectives, review contractors and design concepts, advise the pastor and communicate with the parish community.  It is hoped that committee work will begin this summer.
