A message from the pastor 

Welcome to our website and I would also love the opportunity to personally welcome you to our beautiful church!   Of course, I’m not talking about our red brick building with its’ white steeple that reaches high above mature oak trees.   Our church is a community of saints and sinners who are being nourished by God’s Word and strengthened by the Holy Eucharist!   Come pray with us anytime at St. Peter’s!

We look forward to meeting you!
Msgr. Joe
