Entries for June 2018


Mission Sunday, June 9/10th

At the 4:00pm Mass on Saturday (St. Mary’s), the 8:30am Mass (St. Peter’s), and the 10:30am (St. Mary’s), we welcome Fr. Patrick. He is a Mission Speaker from the Archdiocese of Madras (India) and is part of the Mission Cooperative Appeal. Madras Archdiocese, established in 1952 has a population of 12 million, out of which 420 thousand are Catholics (under 5%). There are 163 Diocesan Priests, 268 religious Priests, 1530 Women religious and 124 lay Catechists who are actively involved in indirect evangelization through various Missionary works in this predominantly Hindu/Muslim dominated society.

With the Mission Cooperation Appeal monies, the Archdiocese will repair and build Mission chapels in the Thiruvalluar district/county, the most backward region of the Archdiocese for families and converts to meet and worship God and keep the Sabbath holy every weekend.

May God bless your generosity,

Most Rev. George Antonysamy, Archbishop of Madras (India)

A special collection will be taken up for this Mission Diocese this weekend. Please be as generous as possible. 


Welcome Fr. James Reutter!

A new Pastor has been appointed to our pastoral region of St. Peter's and St. Mary's. Fr. James Reutter comes to us from Our Lady of Victory on the West side of town, (Delhi area). He is completing a 12 year assignment there and will begin as our Pastor on July 1st. 

The folks over at Our Lady Of Victory will be giving Fr. Reutter a "send off" farewell reception after their 11:00 a.m. Mass on July 1st. This gives their parishioners the opportunity to wish him well and say "good-bye". 


St. Mary's and St. Peter's extends a big "THANK YOU" to Fr. Pat Crone, Fr. Adam Puntel and Fr. David Howard for their ministry and work at our parishes since Fr. Mike Leshney's retirement back in October. 

We look forward to Fr. Reutter being with us here and hope he will spend many happy years as our Pastor.
