Healing Mass Mass this coming Friday June 4th is the First Friday of the Month. We are encouraging as many people as possible to participate in this Mass of Healing, where we pray to God for health of mind, soul and body. This Mass will be at 10:00am Friday morning. Hopefully our Knights of Columbus will furnish a little breakfast so we can have time for fellowship and conversation.  


  Sincere I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to our people who

Gratitude participated in our blood drive this past weekend, by giving blood. It is a very special gift by which we help to save lives, may God reward you for your goodness. MR


Results… We probably came up short of a few donors necessary to qualify our church family for blood for a year. So if you are planning to give blood elsewhere would you mind doing so in the name of St. Peter Church, so that all of the church family will receive blood on demand.       


Thanks & God Bless Thank you for your generosity toward the offering for the victims of the recent tornados in our state, and God Bless you, you gave $757.00. 


IFPlease if you cannot serve at a given Mass as Lector or Eucharist Minister, please call a replacement or call the Rectory. 


                              PLEASE REMEMBER – TURN YOUR

                                                                    CELLPHONE OFF WHILE IN CHURCH!

                                                                                                                                                                                          Thank you for you cooperation.



1.  There is a sense of exhilaration that comes from facing head-on the hard truths and saying, “We will never give up. We will never capitulate. It might take a long time, but we will find a way to prevail.” (Jim Collins, from his book, Good to Great)

2. Any person capable of angering you becomes your master; he can anger you only when you permit yourself to be disturbed by him.  (Epictetus 55-135 AD, Greek Philosopher)


Choose Life Two days in American history that will live in infamy are December 7, 1941 and September 11, 2001. Another infamous date in which a war has launched, a war against the unborn is January 22, 1973. As we remember the countless men and women who have given their lives to defend us, let us pledge again to defend the right to life of the unborn and remember the more than 50 million nameless children who have died since 1973.  


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.
