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!

NEW Online Registration for Sunday School

We have moved Sunday School registration online through Faith Direct! You do not have to be a member of Faith Direct to register for Sunday School, though this would be a great opportunity to register. Here is the link:  https://membership.faithdirect.net/events/details/1959.  If you do not want to use Faith Direct to register, forms will be in the back of the church to fill out and submit a check.
