Messages from the Pastor

Welcome message for visitors/new parishioners: 

A warm welcome from the Family of St. Peter’s.  Besides discovering a phenomenal staff of priests, deacons, Dominican Sisters, and office personnel; you will find our Parish a wonderful, diverse family of Catholic Christian Believers, seeking to know, to love, and to serve God and His people.  We recognize Christ in one another and so we use our time, talents, and treasure to serve the Church, the local community, and the world.  We are dedicated to creating a place of welcoming fellowship and spiritual growth through worship, outreach, evangelization, and service.  We look forward to getting to know you, not only as a visitor but as a valued member of our family.

Prayerfully yours,

Fr. Norbert Rappold


Reconciliation, Confession, is the fastest way to change your life.

Confession is one of the greatest gifts Christ gave to His Church.  The sacrament of penance offers you grace that is incomparable in your quest for sanctity.

Having a good day?  Thank God for it.

Struggling through a bad day?  Invite God into it.

Just another "ordinary" day?  Find God in it.

And--every day--praise God, for life is a gift never to be wasted.

Just tweet others as you wish to be tweeted.  All for her Son,
