Welcome to St. Peter’s! 
Our hope is that you will find God’s love present with you in this place and that you will return here often.

Our communion bread is gluten free. 


Christ the King Sunday   This is the  last Sunday of Ordinary Time just before we begin Advent. Christians have long celebrated Jesus as Christ, and his reign as King is celebrated in Advent (when Christians wait for his second coming in glory).  Christ’s kingship is one of humility and service.
