St. Peter's Memorial Brick Update

On Sunday, June 25, 2017, approximately 80 people were at St. Peter for the parish picnic where the new Commemorative Brick area by the main church entrance was dedicated by Fr. Mike.

 

We will continue to sell bricks for the new area at the main entrance of Church. Order forms are available at both entrances. If you have any questions, please contact Greg Feldkamp -Pastoral Assistant. 335-7886 or via email at GJF357@zoomtown.com

You can still memorialize a loved one by taking part in our brick memorial project. The funds raised will go toward Peter's Fund, which is used for repairs around the church. Contact Greg Feldkamp at 513-335-7886 to purchase a brick or to help with the installation. 

The 4" x 8" bricks sell for $80 each. There are 3 lines of characters available with 14 characters per line.
