Our 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.

Alleluia!
He is Risen!

Happy Easter!
