St. Peter's Parish Picnic

Mark your calendars for Sunday, June 30th for St. Peter’s annual parish picnic!

The annual Parish Picnic celebrates our Feast Day, and we are going to be celebrating as a Parish family.  Whether you are a long time parishioner, new parishioner or visitor - all are welcome!


The fun starts at 2:00 p.m. at the shelter, with a delicious picnic dinner at 4:30 p.m.  The Parish will provide the pork, chicken, hot dogs, corn on the cob, condiments, lemonade and ice water.  Please bring your favorite side dish or dessert to share.


Bring your family, friends, children and grandchildren!  There are lots of activities:  pony ride, hay ride, kiddie train ride, pinata, face painting, water balloon toss, cornhole, volleyball and jenga. Come and meet the New Richmond Fire Department and view a fire truck. 





Join us on Saturday, August 3rd from 4 to 8 PM for the St. Mary’s Pig Roast!

There will be so much fresh food and fun. You won’t want to miss it! 

What do you get for your hard earned moolah? A lot! Your meal includes your choice of pulled pork or chicken. (Brats, metts and hot dogs are available as an alternative.) Five sides include mac and cheese, baked beans, cole slaw, green beans and awesome sweet corn. Lemonade, iced tea or ice water and your choice of dessert is included. Soda is available for a nominal charge.

We are thinking of your comfort and are ready for rain or shine. If you prefer the air conditioning, the
Fr. Le
wis Parish Center will be open. If you enjoy eating outside, we will provide the huge tent with lots of tables and chairs.

The Pig Roast features beer from the Old Firehouse Brewery. Other brands are also available. All brands are at a nominal, extra charge.


This year, we will have the "Split the Pot" and largest "Bid-n-Buy" ever! 


Come and have some fun. Let's go “HOG WILD” and meet up with friends and family both new and old!

Mortgage Burning And Appreciation Day

St. Mary’s – Mortgage Burning and Appreciation Day 

It has been a busy year at St. Mary’s, even into the summer where we are already doing our planning for the new parish year that kicks in on July 1st. On Sunday, July 14th after the 10 AM Mass, we want to take a step back and do two things. First, we wanted to officially acknowledge the generosity of our parishioners in paying off the debt on the new church building. Since we are no longer paying interest on that building loan, we can enjoy worshipping in the beautiful new structure (debt-free) and of course dedicate our resources to building up our Christian community and serving those in need. We will celebrate all this with a “mortgage burning” ceremony immediately after the 10:00 a.m. Mass. Please join us. 

In addition to the financial generosity of our parishioners, we also want to express our appreciation for all those individuals and parish groups that keep the faith alive in the parish. We will pray for them at Mass as well. Without the dedication, commitment, hard work and sacrifice of our parish volunteers, we could not possibly continue to witness to the presence of Jesus Christ in our midst. 

Please take a moment to pray for the volunteer groups, that the Lord may continue to bless their efforts and allow them to bear great fruit.

The Independence Day Mass for 2019 will be held at St. Peter's at 9:00 am. Please join us!


June 22 - 29 is Religious Freedom Week. It takes place from June 22, the Memorial of Sts. Thomas More & John Fisher, through June 29, the Solemnity of Sts. Peter & Paul. Join Catholics across the country to pray and act for the freedom to serve faithfully and with integrity.  Learn more at!




The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which those who wish to join the Catholic faith community are welcomed and introduced to the beliefs and practices of the Catholic Church. For those not yet baptized, this process leads to the Easter Vigil where they receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Those who have been previously baptized in another Christian tradition are invited to participate fully in the Church through the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.

Those who would like to know more should contact:  Deacon Ron Stang (St. Peter’s) at 513-309-5340 or
Deacon Jerry Etienne St. Mary’s (513) 734-4041 X 2. Discussions will begin in September. There is no final commitment to become a member of the Catholic Church until the Easter Vigil (spring).

Would You Like To Revitalize Your Catholic Faith And Learn More?

The RCIA sessions would be perfect for you. If you or someone you know has been away from the church for some time, think seriously about participating in these discussions. It is a casual environment and we know the information will be most helpful. Again, speak to either Deacon Ron or Deacon Jerry to know more.
