Saint Peter Church Vision Statement

Click here for parish information on World Youth Day.

Dear Parishioners, 

Do you believe that God’s word has the power to set you free and to transform your life? When Jesus taught he spoke with authority. He spoke the word of God as no one had spoken it before. When the Rabbis taught they supported their statements with quotes from other authorities. The prophets spoke with delegated authority – “Thus says the Lord.” When Jesus spoke, he needed no authorities to back his statements. He was authority incarnate – the Word of God made flesh. When he spoke, God spoke. When he commanded, even the demons obeyed.

Faith is both a free gift of God and the free assent of our will to the whole truth that God has revealed. To live, grow, and persevere in the faith to the end, we must nourish it with the word of God. The Lord gives us his Holy Spirit to enlighten our minds that we may grow in his truth and in the knowledge of his great love for each of us. If we approach God’s word submissively, with an eagerness to do everything the Lord desires, we are in a much better position to learn what God wants to teach us through his word.

May this short message inspire us to really focus on our daily and weekend Readings during our Eucharistic celebration. Sometimes we do listen during Mass and then the moment we leave the church we forget about it. Let’s make a difference and try to listen to what God has to say to us and then when we know his message, let’s do something about it.

With prayer, Fr. Gregory

P.S. In advance, I would like to thank you for your participation in the Returning God’s Gift Appeal.
