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.

News

St. Peter's Church reopens for Masses!

 

Dear Parishioners and friends,

Great News!  We will be re-opening St. Peter Parish Church for our normal weekend schedule starting Saturday, June 13, 2020.  It has been a long journey from that fateful Friday, March 13th day when we had to cancel our very popular Fish Dinner, to the “Stay-at-Home order,” all the way to our Churches being locked down to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.

However, it helped us to rely more strongly on God and His providence, and to grow in our Catholic Faith, as we came up with many faith-filled and creative ways to pray and worship.  Finally, we are coming to the end of this long sojourn.  Our Church is once again open for prayer, we have been hearing Confessions and receiving Holy Communion, and now, this weekend, we will begin having our normal schedule of Saturday evening/Sunday Masses in the Church.

As we move forward, we continue to pray for all who have died during this pandemic and all families affected.  Things will be a little different when you come back to Church.

¨The Church has been cleaned and scrubbed from top to bottom

¨There will be hand sanitizers and disinfectant wipes throughout the Church.

¨Masks are required.  However, if you have a medical condition or cannot wear a mask, please make sure you maintain a six-foot separation.

¨If you have been exposed to the virus within 14 days, I kindly ask that you do not attend Mass.  Also, if you are not feeling well, please stay home.

¨If you are uncomfortable attending Mass, you may stay at home, as this is a personal decision and you are absolutely not obligated to attend Mass at this time.  

Thank you to all who have been so generous with contributions during this pandemic.  The financial support of St. Peter’s is very important, as we must continue to pay our bills.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the office.  Thank you again for your patience, understanding and generosity.  Please know that you continue to be in my thoughts and prayers and may God Bless and Protect each of you.

 

With warm regards and prayer,

 

Fr. Angelo J. Patti
