Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Parish Mission Statement:
The parish family of St. Peter and St. Patrick affirms its faith identity by living in full accord with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, and the teaching and tradition of the Catholic Church. As Disciples of Christ, we give witness to that faith by active participation in the parish and its ministries. We are called by the Spirit to live the gospel, to celebrate the sacramental life of the Church, to teach, to serve and love all, and to be stewards of the gifts that we have received for future generations.
Confessions are heard one-half hour before each weekend Mass, or, anytime, by appointment.
READ St. John 20:21-23

Every Thursday from 8:00 am to 8:30 pm
Holy Hour for vocations to the priesthood and religious life at 7:30 pm

Religious Education classes are on Sundays, at 8:45 am, during the school year.
For more information, please contact our Religious Education Office.

Eucharistic Adoration

Enjoy the silence, and WISDOM:  A wise old owl lived in an oak.  The more he saw the less he spoke.  The less he spoke the more he heard.  Why can’t we all be like that wise old bird?…English nursery rhyme          

Adoration Times:  we need you for Eucharistic Adoration
