News & Events
Returning God's Gifts 2020
The Returning God's Gifts (RGG) Annual Appeal is a diocesan-wide effort to help provide the funding
necessary for the important ministries and programs the appeal supports: Forming Catholic Leaders,
Faith Formation, Catholic Charities and parish projects. Some of these ministries provide services beyond the scope of individual parishes and some exist for the sole purpose of assisting parishes in their own missions to teach, evangelize and serve. The appeal encourages participation from every Catholic household to uphold this mission of Jesus Christ in each parish for our local Church and allows us, as
one faith community, to fulfill God’s call to discipleship by sharing the gospel message in word and deed,
serving each other with mercy and love. The goal for St. Peter is $168,035. Click here to make a donation.

Pray for persecuted Christians
Did you know that one in 12 Christians throughout the world suffers persecution? While genocide at the hands of the Islamic State and others in the Middle East has been particularly egregious, the slavery, imprisonment, torture, rape, expulsion and murder of the followers of Christ is epidemic around the globe. It is estimated that 215 million Christians experience high levels of persecution worldwide (2018 Open Doors World Watch List). Please join us here at the parish praying for our suffering brothers and sisters in faith. You can pick up a beautiful prayer card (with the olive wood cross on the front) as a reminder at the Welcome Center at the north entrance. "Remember the prisoners as if chained with them - those who are mistreated - since you are yourselves are in the body also." Hebrews13: 3
Are you interested in becoming Catholic?
Are you discerning about being baptized or being initiated into the Catholic Church? Are you an adult who wants to complete their sacraments? If so, the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is the perfect place to not only grow in your relationship with God, but also learn more about the Catholic faith. If you are interested and ready to answer your call to discern the next step in your faith journey or just have questions about this process, please contact Teresa Crichton. Formal classes begin in September.

Message From Monument Police Department
In the last several months the Monument area has experienced a sharp increase in trespasses into vehicles, several residential burglaries, and four motor vehicle thefts. In almost all of these cases the vehicles were left unlocked in the driveway or street, or in a garage with the garage door open.
One simple way to curb these crimes of opportunity is if everyone were to take very simple security precautions. First, always lock your vehicle. If you leave your car outside make sure that nothing of value is left in it (to include garage door remote control) and that no personal items can be seen simply by looking in the car. Make sure to always close your garage door at night and lock the passage door that leads from the garage into your residence. Finally, make sure that all windows and doors to your house are secured.
These very simple precautions can help prevent you from becoming a victim. If we remove the opportunity we hope to eventually remove the attempts.
