You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh;
rather, serve one another humbly in love. --Galatians 5:13
As Christians, we are called to serve. Please prayerfully consider sharing your time and talent with our parish.
Please note: All volunteers who come into contact with children in any capacity are required to take Safe Environment Training.

St. Peter Church
Christmas Mass Volunteers Needed
Volunteers are needed to hand out special gifts to each family as they leave the Christmas Masses. If you can share 5-10 minutes at the end of Mass on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, please contact Welcoming Ministry Coordinator Sonja Beaudoin (719-488-1319).
Health and Healing Ministry Seeks Volunteers
The Health and Healing Ministry is looking for volunteers to write cards for those who are ill, hospitalized or homebound. The volunteer commitment is about one hour per week. For more information, contact Melissa Smith (719-481-3511).
Cathecist and Cathecist's Aide's Needed
Do you love your faith and enjoy sharing it with others? Please consider becoming a Catechist or Catechist aide! Not only are you sharing your faith with the children of our parish, you are also taking a more active role as true disciples of Jesus in preaching the Gospel. Training is provided for you. If you have a calling to this ministry but feel unfit, remember that Jesus does not call the qualified…He qualifies the called! For more information or to have your questions and concerns addressed, please contact Jilinda Dygert (719-481-3511).
Ministry Volunteers to Serve at Mass
St. Peter Church is in need of volunteers to serve as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Altar Servers, Lectors, and/or Hospitality Ministers. If you're interested, please contact Melissa Smith for more information.
Stephen Ministers are lay Christians who receive a minimum of 50 hours of training and continuing education to equip them to provide confidential one-on-one Christian care to those in our community who are experiencing difficulty. A Stephen Minister typically meets with his or her (same sex) care receiver about an hour per week to listen, pray, support, encourage, and “be there” as long as needed. For more information about this ministry at St. Peter Church, contact Lupita Tenpenny (719-495-6545). To learn more about becoming a Stephen Minister, watch the 2016 Stephen Ministry Promo video.

Are you looking for an extremely fulfilling way to serve the Lord and others? Consider volunteering to visit our seniors in nursing homes, or the home bound from our parish. The time commitment is minimal and flexible, and the reward is immeasurable. To learn more, contact Jeanne Dennis at 719-559-1711 or Melissa Smith.
RCIA Sponsors Needed
Sponsors are needed for adult and youth RCIA candidates. If you are interested in this important and rewarding role, please contact Deacon Tom Dickinson.
St. Peter Catholic School
We are looking for volunteers who can tutor middle school students in math and language arts. Tutoring is needed from 2:35 – 3:15 pm on Wednesdays. All volunteers are required to complete the Safe Environment volunteer application and training. Please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
As a monthly service project St. Peter School students in 1st through 8th grades write to a senior parishioner. We want the students to communicate with and pray for people they may never meet. It is not required that the Grandfriend writes back; we are trying to teach the children that it is in giving that they receive so many blessings. Please contact the school (email@example.com) if you are interested in being a part of this program. Also, let us know if there is someone you think would benefit from receiving a monthly letter.
