Christmas Mass 2016 - Autism & the Sacraments

The Christmas Mass for our Autism and the Sacraments Program took place Saturday as we ventured out in our first snow of the season. As always, the joy and love of God was present as we came to together in anticipation of the coming of His son. We give thanks for all God is doing for and through us here, and as always, we're humbled by how much we receive by the children we serve.

Fr. Gagne's 2016 Christmas Message

Dear Parishioners,

During the season of Advent we have been treated by the Prophet Isaiah’s dream about what God is going to bring about among his people. Isaiah dares to dream about a world where there will be no more training for war, and where a child will lead mankind into a world where the lion and the lamb will be friends, and where no one will go astray, or experience any harm on God’s holy mountain. He writes of a great sign that will be given, “the virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall name him Emmanuel. A name that means that God is with us.” ... Continue Reading...>>

The Giving Tree

The St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Peter’s Parish is sponsoring “The Giving Tree.” This is an opportunity for the entire St. Peter’s Parish Family to help by sharing their gifts from God with others.

Barren Branches, decorated with tags, will be set up in the upper and lower Church. The tags reflect a gift a request of a clothing or toy item. Each tag includes that individual’s age, gender and size where applicable. We ask parishioners to select as many tags as they would like. Purchase the item on the tag, wrap it and place it, with the tag attached, under the tree no later than December 13th. This enables us to complete our preparations for an efficient distribution of the gifts. These “Barren Branches” will also serve as our Jesse Tree. As the tags are removed, Jesse Tree ornaments will replace them. For those who prefer the practice of recent years, we will continue to provide woolen items to the those in need. Unwrapped woolen items may be placed in the containers near the trees. We hope all our parishioners will take part in the Christmas “sharing our gifts” with others. Thank you for your continued generosity. 

All Souls Day, November 2nd

Mass, Wednesday 7 AM
Commemoration of all the Faithful
Departed (All Soul’s Day)

The ‘fire’ of purgatory is God’s love ‘burning’ the soul so that, at last, the soul is wholly aflame. It is the pain of wanting to be made totally worthy of One who is seen as infinitely lovable, the pain of desire for union that is now absolutely assured, but not yet fully tasted
— St. Catherine of Genoa
