Welcome to Saint Peter’s Parish
Celebrating Our Anniversary
On Friday, October 7 we will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the
dedication of our church and altar! The Church allows for the
transfer of such an occasion to the nearest Sunday. Therefore, our
celebration of this very special anniversary will take place on
Sunday, October 9 (and at the evening Mass on Saturday, October 8).
The Church provides for special readings and prayers for the
Anniversary of the Dedication of a Church. The readings proclaimed
on October 8–9 will not be those for the 28th Sunday in Ordinary
Time. Instead, they will be the following:
Ezekiel 43:1–2, 3–7
1st Corinthians 3:9–11, 16–17
We can prepare ourselves for this celebration by spending
quiet time with the Lord at Eucharistic Adoration, beginning Friday
morning, October 7, continuing throughout the night, and
concluding just before the 8:30 a.m. Mass on Saturday morning,
October 8. Then we will celebrate this joyous anniversary with our
entire parish family by gathering for the “source and summit of our
Christian life” (the Mass). Let us thank God for this beautiful house
that his goodness has provided for us and for generations to come.
That Man Is You!
That Man is You! has arrived. Those who are interested
in attending may join the group each Saturday. This interactive,
multimedia men’s program focuses on the development of authentic
male leadership. That Man is You! considers men in terms of their
relationship to God, to their spouse, and to their children. The
program’s goal is to help men become better Christian husbands
That Man Is You! sessions are held each Saturday in the
Treacy Center. Sessions run from 6:30-8 a.m.
LIVE DIFFERENTLY. LOVE BOLDLY. #ENCOUNTERMERCY
“In this Jubilee Year, let us allow God to surprise us. He never tires of
casting open the doors of his heart and of repeating that he loves us
and wants to share his love with us.”
(Pope Francis, Misericordiae Vultus)
“The most important thing in the life of every man and every woman is
not that they should never fall along the way. The important thing is to
get back up, not to stay on the ground licking your wounds. The Lord
of mercy always forgives me; he always offers me the possibility of
starting over. He loves me for what I am, he wants to raise me up, and
he extends his hand to me. This is one of the tasks of the Church: to
help people perceive that there are no situations that they cannot get
out of. For as long as we are alive it is always possible to start over, all
we have to do is let Jesus embrace us and forgive us.” (Pope Francis,
The Name of God is Mercy) Celebrate God’s mercy with us this year at
