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.

St. Peter’s Catholic Church Cemetery

(The beautiful gates of St. Peter’s Cemetery, so inviting to visitors, need to be repainted)
Our cemetery is now over 176 years old. For the first 100 years, it was maintained by families who cared for their individual plots, and for the adjacent pathways and public areas. Each October, leading up to All Saints/Souls days, families would clean the cemetery and paint their ancestor’s tombs. Old flowers were replaced with new flowers, weeds were removed, aisles cleaned and the whole cemetery was renewed. For the rest of the year the cemetery was kept clean by the occasional visitor.

As time went by, an association was formed and annual dues were paid by families for cemetery care. These funds were used to pay workers who cleaned and maintained the cemetery. Families were given the option to pay perpetual dues, instead of annual dues. This larger onetime payment was invested and only the earnings have been used to pay for cemetery care. Regrettable, our own cemetery has been fully occupied now for many years, and rates for dues and perpetual payments have been outstripped by inflation; and interest rates are extremely low. In addition, as families have moved away, the collection of annual dues have gone down. And believe it or not, many descendants are not interested in paying dues for their ancestor’s cemetery maintenance.

No one expects the cemetery to go without care or end up being abandoned. However, St. Peter’s Cemetery has reached a tipping point where changes must be made. A new plan to replace the well-meaning but outdated plans of the past is being formulated.

Our Parish believes that the cemetery should be cared for and should continue, in the future, to be a place of respect, beauty and grace where we can honor our loved ones!
