Welcome to Our Church
Through the grace of God and the commitment of the Catholic Community, we a parish devoted to imitating the life of Christ, as proclaimed in the Holy Gospels, offer a gathering place for worship, service, and fellowship for all.
As ambassadors for Christ, we serve the faithful, those who have strayed from the faith, and those who are not members of the faith community so that all may be reconciled to God.
A Letter From A Concerned Parishioner
To my dear fellow parishioners, Catholics and friends of St. Peter's Church, This pandemic has been so hard for all of us, and “like a deer longs for running streams, my soul longs for the Lord”. I would love to attend mass and receive Jesus in the Eucharist, but have not been able to do so. I have come to church, seen the signs that say, “Masks Required” and have seen the directives from the bishop that say that Masks are Required, but when I look in the door, many people are not wearing masks. For this reason, I am prevented from that one thing that I so desperately need. You see, I am the parent of a child with a chronic condition. Our family lives like we’re in a pandemic all the time. Our other kids miss out on things that will put their brother at risk every single day. Our family has learned that by avoiding any unnecessary public contact, and wearing a mask, we reduce the risk of bringing home any virus that could cause our boy to become gravely ill or lose his life. From my perspective, it’s like watching my kid swim in a shark tank. What might just be a cold to most people, could be death to my son. I’m not a hypochondriac, my son is compromised, and Covid-19 presents an even greater risk. The point is, whether I have a child with a chronic condition, or a child or family member on chemotherapy, or I work at a hospital or nursing home or have a family member who takes medication to suppress their immune system, I can’t go to mass with a group of people who are not wearing masks. The surgeon general of the U.S. has advised us to wear masks, as doing so minimizes the spread of the virus; he seems to me a reliable source of information. If you have some condition that prevents you from being able to wear a mask, I feel for you. If it is your choice to not wear a mask, please understand that you are taking away my ability to attend mass and receive Holy Communion. If you truly want to demonstrate your love for neighbor, pray for my family, thank God you aren’t in my position – and hope you never are - and wear a mask to mass. Either way, I will keep you in my prayers, and hope that God will open all our hearts and minds to live in His service.
