Saint Peter Church Vision Statement

Click here for parish information on World Youth Day.

Dear Parishioners,

We are in the middle of the season which is called flu season. Many of us experience some difficulties with cold or flu. I would like to recall the meaning of the Eucharist under the body and blood of Jesus Christ. When we receive the Body of Christ we receive whole Jesus Christ in his Body and Blood, when we receive the Blood of Christ we receive also whole Jesus in His Body and Blood.

The recommendation is that we use common sense when we receive Holy Communion especially when we have to deal with the flu. It would be recommended in that case that we receive only the Bread of Life, the host on our hands. Also, it is important to know that if you have severe cold or flu please stay home and get well. Try to be part of our community by watching Mass on TV or listening on the radio. If we are sick and we do not come to the church on Sunday we don’t commit a mortal sin against the Third Commandment. Stay home and get well.

Of course, I would like to make sure that no one has the right to tell you not to come to the church or not to receive Communion under both species. The words above are just a recommendation and a word of explanation.

Yours in Prayer,Padre G

Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe

Saint Peter Five-Year Plan

The St. Peter Parish Council has compiled and prayerfully reviewed parish survey results, including 434 survey questionnaires, inputs from 65 town hall attendees, and 50 interviews. Also included in our review were data from the surrounding communities. We would like to thank all those who’ve participated in the process by filling out survey questionnaires, responding to interview requests, and/or participating in one of our two town hall planning meetings. Because of this feedback, a plan has been created that will help guide St. Peter Parish into the future. Thank you. To view the plan, click on the banner above.
