TRINITY

Dear Parishioners,

Although we were taught as Christians, to believe in one God in three divine persons, the actual practice of our faith sometimes suggests that for many, God is an old man in a white beard, who judges, punishes, and keeps a record of every mistake we make. This God is to be feared, appeased, and at best approached with great caution.

ESTATE PLANNING AND YOUR PARISH

Dear Parishioners,

During this past year several deceased parishioners included St. Peter Parish and School in their estate plans prior to their passing. To date, we have received almost $30,000 from people who made provisions for their parish in their last will and testaments.

“ABORTION LEGISLATION”

During the past 2000 years there have been so many advances in science, medicine, language, and technology.

“Let Us Remember That We Are In The Holy Presence Of God”

Winter is to nature, what spirituality is to the Christian. In winter all life in nature goes dormant, so that during this period of rest nature can renew itself in preparation for spring. Without winter there cannot be any spring. If my fig trees were not allowed to go dormant and rest, they could never produce their delicious figs in the summer.

Grateful for God's Providence

Dear Parishioners,

I am making one last appeal on behalf of the diocesan campaign, “Grateful for God’s Providence.” As of today we have raised a little over 250,00 toward our goal of $485, 951. So many poor inner city parishes have already made their goal, and in some cases gone over their goal.
