“Reach Out with your Heart”

Worrying has been affecting me in ways that are new for me. And, because I’m such an extrovert, I find my comfort and joy in being with those I care about, like our St. Peter’s family. So where does this new Season leave me and you, if you are worried, too?

Rite 13 Liturgy Celebration this Sunday

This Sunday we celebrate the Rite 13 Liturgy, a rite of passage in our young peoples’ lives, as well as a special occasion for them, for their parents, and for the parish. Your support plays a part in this journey. By joining in Sunday’s liturgy, you join in the celebration of this journey to adulthood.

Caring for Those in Our World

We owe it to our friends and neighbors to share with them the good news of Christ through our worship services, our formation programs and our in-reach and outreach opportunities. Join me in inviting others to experience what we have.

Youth Pilgrimage: Unpacking 2019 and Preparing for 2021

At the same time that we are remembering, sharing, and unpacking the 2019 Youth Pilgrimage in this Sunday’s Forum, we must begin the process of preparing the next class of youth pilgrims for their life-changing journey in 2021. Join us for Shrimp and Suds on Saturday, October 5 at 6:30 p.m. on the St. Peter’s Rooftop Patio.

Journey to Adulthood 2019 Pilgrimage, June 24-July 4

This Sunday, the nine members of our 2019 Pilgrim Class, their adult leaders and our Priest-in-Charge will receive the “Gifts of Pilgrimage,” outward and visible symbols and tools to enable these pilgrims to grow in grace and in their relationships with God and Jesus. As we walk this Holy Pilgrimage together through London, Canterbury, and Northern France we will concentrate on growing community and being present in each sacred place we visit.

“…So that the love with which You have loved me may be in them…”

The beauty of attending church and participating in Christian formation is that this is where we all come to give and receive a regular infusion of love, acceptance, peace and knowledge. As this class of seniors take the next steps on their journeys, may they know that they take with them our unceasing prayers and our well-wishes for the coming years.

Sacred and Holy Pilgrimage

The Youth Pilgrims embark on their Holy Pilgrimage this summer and invite the parish to join them in celebration at the “St. Pierre’s Spaghetti Dinner” and Silent Auction on Saturday, March 16. All proceeds benefit their journey and experience connecting to God.

Preparing for Advent

As we prepare for the beginning of a new year in the Church liturgical calendar on December 2, the first Sunday of Advent, I am reminded of the practice of setting new goals for the new spiritual year.
