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 are having a Blood Drive here at St. Peter’s this Sunday, May 23rd immediately following the 9:00 Mass. As we give blood this morning, let’s try to be patient and as corporative as possible.

1.  “When I thought I couldn’t go on, I forced myself to keep going. My success is based on persistence, not luck.”  (Estee Lauder, Entrepreneur)

2. “Man often becomes what he believes himself to be, if I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end, by really becoming incapable of doing it, on the contrary, if I shall have the belief that I can do it. I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning.”  (Mahatma Gandhi, 1869-1948, Indian Nationalist Leader)

3. Unswerving loyalty to duty, constant devotion to truth, and a clear conscience will overcome every discouragement and surely lead the way to usefulness and high achievement.   (Grover Cleveland)


Choose Life As this nation continues to tolerate the dehumanizing evil of abortion, what will history think of this era? Many history experts agree that abortion clinics will be noted in history with the same significance as Nazi concentration camps. A prediction worthy of reflection.


Sick/Homebound/Hospitalized If you have anyone ill, homebound, or hospitalized please    contact the rectory so they can be added to our prayer list and Father Ruane can visit and pray for them.
