Saint Peter Church Vision Statement

Click here for parish information on World Youth Day.

Dear Parishioners,This is the conclusion of the St. Peter 5 Year Parish Plan: 

VOLUNTEERISM (corresponding Diocesan Focus Area: “Stewardship as a Way of Life”)

Goal: Increase the proportion of parishioners actively involved in ministries.

  • Evaluate ministries for numbers and mission.
  • Develop a system for personal invitation to participate in parish activities, including acting rapidly to engage people when they do volunteer and encouraging people to bring friends.
  • Establish a process to ensure all volunteers are recognized and thanked in person.
  • Set up regular, clear communication of the need for stewardship of time and talent.
  • Develop a crisp process encouraging service following completion of the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).
  • Examine the possibility of extending the required volunteerism program for parents of children in the school to all adult parishioners.
  • Develop enthusiastic and effective communications to the Parish regarding the accomplishments of the ministries, encouraging others to join. 

 

Yours in Prayer,

   Padre G

Charitable Needs

  • December Tri-Lakes Care Requests: Canned yams/sweet potatoes, Red and Green Jell-O, Cream of Mushroom Soup, Chicken Broth, Boxed or Bagged Pie Crust Mixes, Pancake Mix, Non-dairy boxed milk (almond, soy, rice, etc), Cooking Oil, Paper Towels, Facial Tissue, and Toilet Paper.
  • January Tri-Lakes Cares Requests: Paper Towels, Facial Tissue, Toilet Paper, Powdered Laundry Detergent (no liquid please), Liquid Dish Soap (for hand washing dishes), Toothbrushes, Deodorant – male and female, Razors – male and female, Shampoo & Conditioner. These types of goods become very important when searching for a job and trying to make food stamp dollars stretch. Food stamps do not pay for non-food items, so many clients are in need of these things.
  • Catholic CharitiesMarian HouseA basket/box has been placed in the church hallway telling everyone as winter sets in that Catholic Charities is asking for help to provide men’s socks to the homeless.  If Saint Peter parishioners would find it in their hearts to meet this request, they can drop them off in the basket provided and the box will be taken to Catholic Charities downtown.

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.
