St. Peter's Progress Report on the Centennial Campaign
To mark the centennial of the foundation of the Diocese of Lafayette, a milestone project has been undertaken by means of the Diocesan Capital Campaign. The campaign is a multi-faceted approach to support the following: seminarian education, Catholic Student Centers at LSUE & UL of L, outreach services, and care for retired clergy and religious. In addition to this, St. Peter’s parish has joined in the campaign for major parish deferred maintenance issues such as: repair of the church roof, updating of rectory electrical wiring, as well as installation of energy efficient windows and needed preventive maintenance on the structures of the parish. Also, in the St. Peter’s parish case is the retirement of all current parish debt. This case statement total over $1.6 million.
The parish goal for the campaign is $2.3 Million with $619,500 of the goal for our portion to the Diocesan Capital Campaign. You can see in the following column the progress of the campaign in our parish.
We kindly ask that if you have not had an opportunity of pledge, please consider taking part in this campaign. Any amount is greatly appreciated and will help to continue the fruitful works of the Diocese of Lafayette and St. Peter’s Parish.
Memorials & Personal Intentions - Votive Candles
Votive Candles are available for memorials and personal intentions throughout the Church. Prices and locations are as follows:
Candles on St. Joseph’s Altar are perpetual candles and burn for one year for memorial and personal intentions. The cost of these candles is now $260.00. The increase is due to the fact that the $115.00 did not cover the actual cost of these candles for the year.
The votive candles on the Blessed Mother’s Altar are $5.00 for the seven-day candles.
The votive candles in the Baptistery are for St. Jude and St. Anthony and are $2.00. They burn for one day.
Votive Candle Donations
We are asking parishioners to please remember to place your donations in the donation slot when lighting votive candles for your prayer intentions. Unfortunately, due to the lack of payments, candle expenses are not being covered. By doing this, we can help defray the cost of candles in the parish. Everyone’s cooperation is greatly appreciated.
