Blood Drive The goodness and generosity of people who can and are willing to give blood has helped to save many lives, your priest included. We will have a Blood Drive here at St. Peter’s on Sunday, May 23rd immediately following the 9:00 Mass. We are hoping that 30 of our people, at least, will be willing to give blood so that our Church Family will qualify for the gift of blood for one year. Please sign up on the list in the vestibule, when you enter into the Church. We are hoping that many of our people will respond favorably to this great opportunity of reaching out and helping others. [Last Sundays Gospel], By this will all know that you are my followers if you love one another.

& Mary   of May to show our love and respect for our Blessed Mother.




1.  We want to give our children what we didn’t have; but let’s make sure we give them what we did have; our faith.  (Anonymous)

2. Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.  (Helen Keller, 1880-1968, American writer)

3.  The world is divided into people who do things, and people who get credit. Try, if you can, to belong to the first class, there is far less competition.   (Dwight Morrow, 1873-1931, businessman, Politician and Diplomat)


Choose Life “Mothers are closer to God the Creator than any other creature.  God joins forces with mothers in performing this act of creating a human being.  The angels have not been blessed with such a grace.  Only a human mother is.”  (Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty)
