Evangelization: The Mode of Life of Priests
That priests, through the modesty and humility of their lives, commit themselves actively to a solidarity with those who are most poor.

Many thanks to those parishioners of St. Peter’s that give their time each week to provide such an enriching opportunity to our young children!

Please also note that our nursery ministry during the 11:00 am Mass will continue to be provided during the summer months.

Parish Life


The Teaching of the Most Holy Trinity and the Ceiling of St. Peter’s Sanctuary

On this Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, we turn our attention to our catechetical understanding of the doctrine of our Triune God. In the great mystery of God we profess Him as one God yet three separate distinct persons. This truth is a constant reminder to us here at St. Peter’s as we gaze into the ceiling of our beautiful sanctuary. The great teaching in the diagram found in the Baltimore Catechism exemplifies this Divine Truth. Let us always give adoration, honor and glory to the Most Holy Trinity.

St. Peter Altar Server Outing to New Orleans

On Saturday, July 13th we will be treating our parish altar servers to a day in New Orleans. The outing will consist of an opportunity to visit Notre Dame Seminary, St. Louis Cathedral, The New Orleans Aquarium and a boat ride on the famous Riverboat Natchez.

 Our young servers are very dedicated to their ministry of serving at the altar of God. I would like to thank them for their dedication and give them an opportunity to spend the day with me and each other in a casual setting. The cost of this trip for 33 servers will be approximately $2300.000. This includes bus transportation, tickets to the Aquarium and Steamboat Natchez and lunch. It would be appreciated if our parishioners would contribute a little to assist the parish financially in providing this outing for our servers. Consider how it is customary to tip a waiter or waitress in a restaurant who serves at table. These young boys and girls as well as our high school students serve at the Table of the Lord each Sunday and even on weekdays. Let’s show them our appreciation with a generous tip.

If you would like to contribute to this outing, please place your donation in the Sunday collection in an envelope clearly marked “Altar Server Outing.” You can also mail it to the parish, drop it off at the parish office or give it to me personally. If the donations collected exceed the amount needed for this New Orleans trip, the extra funds will assist the parish in the expenses recently incurred in the purchase of the new red cassocks and red trimmed surplices that our servers are now wearing on feast days and solemnities.

Many thanks for your continuous generosity and support for our dedicated altar servers.

Fr. Blanda
