Bon VoyageWe all wish Fr. Ruane Bon Voyage on his trip to Ireland for a well deserved rest and visit with his family and friends. We hope that your vacation will be a happy and pleasant one.


Vacation I will be leaving next Sunday afternoon, July the 31st for a few weeks in Ireland with family and friends. You will be remembered in my daily Masses and prayers, you might remember me in your prayers. MR


WelcomeWe welcome Father Al Camp who has again agreed to take care of us in Father Ruane’s absence. I know you will make him welcomed and listen to his words of wisdom.


Hospital Visitation Please call us at the rectory if you or a member of your family is in the hospital in Grenada or elsewhere. Hospitals have a privacy policy that doesn’t make known the people in the hospital. I would like to visit people while in the hospital if at all possible to pray with them and to give them a little encouragement.                                                                                                                


Moving In And Out”… Summer time is often a time of transitions for families. We want to say farewell to any people who may be leaving and thank you for your participation in our parish. We also wish to welcome any new individuals or families at St. Peter Parish and we invite you to make yourself known to us and to register with the parish. Parish registration forms are available in the vestibule, or call the Parish Office at 662-226-2490.    


Choose Life   “Women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy also deserve unplanned joy.” We need to work together to systematically eliminate the root causes that drive so many women to abortion—primarily the lack of financial resources and lack of emotional support.”  (Patricia Heaton, actress, author and pro-life advocate.)
