Couple Checkup

The Couple Checkup is designed to help you and your partner build a more satisfying and intimate relationship. Just answering the questions will stimulate thoughts and attitudes about your relationship. It is designed to activate dialogue, discovery, and increase the overall quality of your relationship.

It will help you discover your strengths as a couple. Strengths are what enable you to enjoy, and to continue developing a healthy relationship. It will also help you identify issues that are threatening the vitality of your relationship and may need to be addressed.

Welcome to St. Peter's Catholic Church


You enter this Church...not as a stranger, but as a guest of God. He is your heavenly Father. Come, then, with joy in your heart and thanks on your lips into His presence, offering Him your love and service. Be grateful to the strong and loyal ones who, in the name of Jesus Christ, built this place of worship, and to all who have beautified it and hallowed it with their prayers and praise. Ask His blessing on those who love His house of faith as the inspiration of their labor, rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit, and may that blessing rest on you, both on your going out and your coming in.

The BSA is the most effective and efficient way to meet the needs of the multitudes. Our goal is to unite as a parish and have every family and individual participate to the very best of their ability, in recognition and in thanksgiving for God’s many blessings.

All registered parishioners should have received a special letter from Bishop Jarrell requesting a personal commitment and pledge. If you have already responded in the spirit of stewardship and discipleship, fervent thanks and blessings are yours. If not, please do so, by:

Donating with a pledge envelope, giving online at www.diolaf.org/bsaonline or by calling BSA office at (337)261-5641.

Thank you and may God bless you abundantly. Know that God will indeed bless and reward your generosity and concern for others.

Your Role As A Catholic Voter
“A Prayer for the Family”

O dear Jesus, I humbly implore You to grant Your special graces to our family. May our home be the shrine of peace, purity, love, labor and faith. I beg You, dear Jesus, to protect and bless all of us, absent and present, living and dead.

O Mary, loving Mother of Jesus, and our Mother, pray to Jesus for our family, for all the families of the world, to guard the cradle of the newborn, the schools of the young and their vocations.
Blessed Saint Joseph, holy guardian of Jesus and Mary, assist us by your prayers in all the necessities of life. Ask of Jesus that special grace which He granted to you, to watch over our home at the pillow of the sick and dying, so that with May and with you, heaven may find our family unbroken in the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Amen

Pope Francis-2014

Amen.
