Thanksgiving Day brings thoughts of lots of food, time with family and friends along with watching parades and football. While these things are all enjoyable, there is one thing that is most important we're sure you won't want to forget.

What better way to begin your Thanksgiving Day than to give thanks to our Almighty God who makes all things possible! 

Please join us for the morning 9 AM Mass at St. Mary and St. Peter. 

All are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Deacon Ron (St. Peter's) and Deacon Jerry (St. Mary's) will bake small loaves of bread that will be blessed at the Mass. You will be able to take these back home for your family to enjoy. 


This year, the Masses for the 4th Sunday of Advent on December 23rd and 24th are at the normal weekend times (5:00 PM Saturday; 8:30 and 11 AM on Sunday at St. Peter's) AND (4:00 PM Saturday, and 10:30 AM on Sunday at St. Mary's).

Join us this Christmas!  You are always welcome!

Of course, Christmas is a Holy Day of Obligation. The following are the Mass times:

St. Mary and St. Peter (Christmas Mass times are the same for both parishes)

Sunday, December 24th Christmas Eve - 4:30 PM

Monday, December 25th Christmas Day - 9:30 AM

“ I am very happy to have this opportunity to be your Temporary Parochial Administrator until December 31, 2017. At that time, hopefully you will have a new pastor.

I still have all of my responsibilities that I had before this appointment. I am Weekend Associate at the St. Veronica and St. John Fisher Region, which means, I have two Masses there each weekend. I also have scheduled Masses at the New England Club, Brookwood Retirement Community, Twin Lakes Retirement Community, Brown County Ursuline, Gate of Heaven Cemetery along with other commitments to Parishes in the area and of course all of the chores my sister gives me.

I really appreciate that Fr. Michael Flaherty will continue as our Weekend Associate for our parishes and help with extra Masses. We have worked out a schedule where I will have one Mass with you each weekend and with the generous help of Fr. Ron Williams, Fr. Ted Kosse and Fr. Hans Gruenbauer, we have all of the Masses covered on the weekends. I will be here for the Masses and the administration of your parishes during the week.

I am here to keep things going until your new pastor arrives. I am not here to change staff or programs. I look forward to praying with you and sharing in your ministry over the next ten weeks.

Pray for Fr. Mike as he begins his retirement years. Also please pray for your Parishes, your staff and me, and know that all of you are in my prayers as well.”

Fr. Pat Crone
